Planning for success

I missed the Aurora Borealis this past weekend, though I was looking for it each night. Perhaps we sometimes miss what’s right in front of us.

The final week

It is finals week. Just a few short exams and many celebrations before campus becomes quieter and students put their acquired skills and knowledge to work.

Exploring Vietnam

A group of us visited with leadership and students at the Vietnam National University of Economics and Business on Monday. There was strong interest in partnering with WSU in research, student exchanges, study abroad programs, and perhaps a 2+2 program for Vietnamese students.

Sharing great work

The tree fruit endowed chairs provided research updates last week. The group did a great job talking about their work and its benefits to the industry, as well as their future plans.

A quiet week on campus

This is a quiet week on campus with spring break in full swing. Next week begins the end of semester rush with events and celebrations for the many achievements of students, staff, and faculty.
