Welcome to another exciting issue of the FAMU Forward newsletter, a bi-weekly publication designed to keep you informed on the great achievements taking place at FAMU every day by our students, faculty, staff and alumni.
First, please know that I am humbled to once again have an opportunity to serve as Interim President of Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University and that I am eager to do everything I can to ensure the University continues to serve as one of the nation’s premier higher educational institutions.
Along those lines, the students of FAMU will continue to receive the best education possible and those agencies that support the research of our faculty will continue to realize outstanding returns on these investments. I also want to assure every member of our University family that all phases of the University’s operations are functioning appropriately. In fact, there are several initiatives and events taking place that have put Florida A&M University’s best attributes on full display in the past few days.
Just a few of these attributes are featured in this current issue of FAMU Forward. In our latest issue you can read about various companies and corporations that recently visited campus in an effort to recruit and hire students and alumni during our Fall Career Expo. You can learn more about our 2016 Sports Hall of Fame Inductees and their incredible stories. In addition, there is also an exciting story about our Founder’s Day Convocation on Monday and various activities which took place on campus throughout the day. After 129 years, we all take pride in knowing that this great university continues to serve as a beacon of hope for current and future generations of America’s best and brightest students.
In closing, I am truly grateful for the outpouring of support many of you have already provided me. As a member of the University family, I remain in awe of the unique bond and comradery that makes FAMU one of the most outstanding higher education communities in the world.
Thank you and always remember that by striking together, there’s no limit to what we can accomplish on behalf of FAMU!
