Students - August 29, 2022


Thank you for choosing to be a part of the Winthrop community! As a graduate myself, I think back on my time here and my expectations of leadership. Authenticity, transparency and engagement top the list of characteristics that still resonate with me. I pledge to exemplify those characteristics as I work with you to ensure that the Winthrop experience continues to be one of positive transformation for all students.

As we are getting to know one another, please know that email will continue to be the primary communication tool used to reach students for news that impacts them. But I am also excited about these opportunities this fall during Common Time…

  • Dates for office hours are: in-person (114 Tillman) -- 9/8, 10/6, 11/3; Zoom -- 9/20, 10/18, 11/15.

  • Topical AMA availabilities in DiGs will be 9/15, 10/20, 11/17.

  • These will be promoted on my social media so give me a follow or like for details.

In addition, I hope you definitely feel free to introduce yourself when you see me around campus (I’ll pause to chat!); submit your thoughts through the Questions and Suggestions page of my website; and reach out to me through the email address.

I believe an honest and shared assessment of where we are as a community and of our aspirations for the future starts with us getting to know one another. I look forward to connecting with you!
