Since my last message to you, cadets have returned, classes have begun, and we have had our first, and hopefully, last tropical interruption of the academic year. As Hurricane Idalia became a threat, cadets in true Citadel fashion were filling sandbags in Hampton Park for local residents while juggling the demands of online classes.
Our QEP is a college-wide plan for improving student learning over a five-year period. I am grateful for the leadership of Karin Roof, Simon Ghanat and John Robinson, who are heading up the QEP Leadership, and Jack Porter, who is chair of the QEP taskforce. I am reminded of their vision and their dedication as I walk past the new lamp post banners on campus. “Advising tomorrow’s principled leaders” is a noble challenge and worthy goal, and I am confident that we are up to the task.
Until next time,
Brigadier General Sally Selden, Ph.D, SPHR Provost and Dean of the College
