I am pleased to officially welcome you to the University’s Centennial year.
I invite you to browse this site to see the many special events that will take place throughout 2020 to celebrate the University’s 100th year, discover more about our history and the people who helped us get here, and take an inside look at what we have planned for the future to build on the success of our first century.
The University has come a long way since our humble beginnings in rented space on the campus of Yale. Today, we are a leading comprehensive University that has been recognized for academic excellence, and we have become a destination school for talented students from across the globe. Still, we can do even more.
I see our students continuing to innovate, imagine, and inspire others as they develop the pioneering ideas that will have a far-reaching impact on our world. And I see a University committed to regularly reinventing itself to serve our students, the community, and the companies and organizations at the forefront of creating new solutions and cutting-edge opportunities.
I hope you join me in feeling a strong sense of pride for all the University has achieved and great excitement for a future that beckons with boundless potential.
With best wishes,
Steven H. Kaplan, Ph.D.
