August is a wonderful time of the year, a time of beginnings and endings. Just last week, we held the last graduation of the 2022-2023 Academic Year, and now I am walking around campus, greeting our new and returning students, staff and faculty. In just over a week, I have had both the honor of congratulating our new alumni and their families and the pleasure of welcoming our incoming first-year students. I see their excitement, and like them, I have the same feeling of anticipation about what the new academic year will bring.
As this newsletter highlights, we are ready to begin a new school year and build on our efforts and successes from a busy summer. One such success is our collaboration with GE Aerospace, recently announced at the Paris Air Show. This partnership, supported with funding from the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory, strengthens our position as a leader in developing next-generation materials for extreme conditions during high-speed flight. Just as important, this collaboration with industry is creating opportunities for our students to be part of cutting-edge research with a global impact as well as enhancing the workforce development and prosperity of our state.
This issue also highlights the noteworthy achievements of our programs, current students and alumni. These accomplishments, which showcase the impact we are having beyond the University, are possible only because of you — our alumni and friends. If you would like to help as we begin a new academic year, you can make a donation by clicking the “Make a Gift” button below. Your contributions are very much appreciated, and I look forward to thanking you in person when I see you on campus this fall.
