We are in a time of “transition.” As we know the future continues to be challenging, daunting, perplexing but in my view it will be awesome. The only constant will continue to be change.
Good news: We can be partners in that change. Our world has rapidly changed over the past few decades raising our doubts and fears; but in spite of the tragedies and crisis we read about in our daily papers or watch on TV, I believe today and the future is still a good time to be alive.
This presentation will explore some of those changes and our resources as we share the exciting years ahead.

Join us from 5:45-6:45pm for a reception with UOP grads
