Personal Reflections

In this season of giving thanks and family celebrations, I want to take a moment to personally thank you for your dedication and continued commitment—and to express my gratitude to each of you for helping IMSA to accomplish so much this year.

It’s been a few weeks since my last personal reflection and I think today is a perfect day—at the start of this season of gratitude—to share my thoughts with you.

First, it has been an honor and a joy to serve as your President these past two months, ten weeks to be exact! During this time my Listening and Learning Plan was successfully implemented and some findings and theories have emerged. I’d like to share these with you and begin by restating that I consider IMSA to be a fine institution that does not need to be “fixed” or “turned around.” Simply put, we’re neither falling apart nor on the verge of closing.
