colleagues. Their legacies will certainly be treasured for years to come."
"ECSU deserves to remain both a valued institution and viable competitor for the best
and brightest students-locally, regionally and globally. I hope to inspire the Viking
Family to join me in fully embracing an ECSU culture that is efficient, collaborative,
student-centered, and in spite of all obstacles, unwavering."
