Description of the video:
Those are the two words I have been waiting to say all summer long.
To our students, your decision to continue your educational journey
at IU Northwest inspires us all.
An inseparable aspect of life is that it continuously presents us with new challenges, and with
the global pandemic, life has presented us with its most significant test in recent memory.
Your decision to steadfastly pursue academic excellence at IU Northwest, is a testament
to your perseverance in pursuing your dreams.
We take your commitment seriously.
Our faculty and staff have dedicated themselves over the past several months to ensure that
your educational experience this semester - whether online, in-person or hybrid format
- will offer the same high quality teaching, learning and support that you expect
And as your Chancellor, my commitment to you is that I will always be in perpetual motion,
constantly and relentlessly finding ways to make
IU Northwest an even better institution for you.
We will always be there with you and for you, but more than ever, it is important to
remember that we are all in this together.
So when you see me on campus, or in your hometown, and you say “hey Chancellor,” know that,
underneath this mask, I am smiling right back at you.
Have a great semester, stay safe, and until we meet again.
