We are delighted to welcome over 1,000 new students to the campuses of Willamette University this week! We hope that this week of welcome and orientation will offer you many opportunities to explore the campuses and meet new friends and colleagues. I know that you will find a community eager to answer your questions and help you discover and take advantage of the many resources on and off campus. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need help or support!
You join the Willamette community at an exciting time when we are building new programs, expanding connections among our five schools, and welcoming an exciting group of faculty and staff colleagues. Our new strategic plan puts your success at the center and also identifies themes around democratic institutions, human-centered computing, and climate change as a focus for our energies. We look forward to your ideas and contributions to our community of learning.
Best wishes for a wonderful year.
Provost and Senior Vice President
