Welcome to the end of a good week. It kicked off with an excellent lecture by Laurie Hawkinson and has ended with a couple of very interesting candidate visits. I did talk with Laurie about the Regnier chair while she was here. She is interested so I will keep you up to date on what happens.
Don't forget to see if you can summarize our strengths into three categories with catchy titles as I mentioned last week. We will spend a little time on this Tuesday at the faculty meeting.
If you missed one of the candidate presentations you will find a video in the respective folders on KSOL.
Also attached is the fifth year teaching proposal information. Proposals will be due Friday April 4th. Please stop by and visit if you have any questions.
As you know, Lisa Shubert's son is very ill. I hope everyone takes some time to put her and Cyrus in thoughts for a quick recovery.
As a final note, if you have some blank wall space outside your studio, please put up some awesome work.
Have a great weekend.
