Editor's note: This is a welcome letter from President Allen to incoming fall 2012 students.
August is an exciting time at UNI. It's when we welcome back our returning students, faculty and staff, and warmly welcome our new students, faculty and staff.
The university has made several strategic decisions that strengthen our core mission and support our commitment to provide students high-quality educational experiences. We are stronger than ever and we are looking forward to another great year filled with many new milestones and opportunities.
Our talented faculty and staff and our outstanding students contribute to the vibrancy of campus. Whether it's in the classroom, in a residence hall, a student organization or academic club, students, faculty and staff make an impact on campus.
As always, I encourage you to fully engage in the UNI community and make the most of your time here. I wish you a safe and educationally fulfilling experience.
Again, welcome to UNI. I look forward to seeing you and experiencing the positive contributions you will make to the UNI campus.
