As we reflect on the year and prepare for the next, we realize that we are at an exciting juncture in Elmira College history. I am pleased to be a part of that excitement. My first six months on campus have been full and rewarding. Our faculty, administrators, and staff are contributing to the energy and dedication of the Elmira College community for advancing the College’s mission. An initiative to significantly upgrade learning spaces has begun, bringing wireless capability to all major academic buildings and refreshing many high-use classrooms with new furniture and technology. This effort is an example of a new era of collegiality — trustees, faculty, and administrators working together to help shape the future of this venerable college.
