Provost's Message

In this season of Thanksgiving, I want to thank all of you for everything you have been doing this semester. It has been a very challenging time, but as a community, we have all come together in support of EMU and Demarius Reed's family, friends and teammates. I was very heartened by the way faculty and staff rose to the occasion on many different levels through these difficult days to assist, reassure, and comfort our bereaved and concerned.

Efforts continue to address campus safety issues with the launching of the new Off-Campus Housing web site, which will help students make informed decisions about living arrangements near campus, and dramatically increase their awareness of safety issues.

I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate those faculty who received tenure appointments and promotions, and full-time lecturers who received promotions for this academic year. Academic Human Resources has launched a who receive these distinctions. Please visit the page and then congratulate our colleagues.
