For me, student success is unquestionably the centerpiece of all we do here in the Edwards College. I have created an undergraduate advisory council comprised of a diverse and energetic group of students so that I hear their feedback, ideas, and concerns firsthand. Last fall, we organized a number of events to welcome and better serve our first-generation students on campus. In November 2019, the faculty, staff, and a number of alumni from the Edwards College came together on Giving Teal Tuesday to donate enough money to start a new scholarship for first-generation students in our college. And as if this weren’t enough, they actually raised more money than any other college on campus to support our students and prove just how amazing (and competitive!) the Edwards College community is.
