The Graduate and Professional School eNewsletter
January 2023



Greetings and welcome to the 2023 spring semester! I hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday break and that you are feeling refreshed, revitalized, and ready to tackle a new semester.

I am excited to introduce you to the inaugural edition of "News from Nagle", the new Graduate and Professional School newsletter. As you may know, the Graduate and Professional School has in recent years expanded the services and support it provides to our students, faculty, and staff. The goal of launching this newsletter is to keep everyone in our community informed about these services and sources of support, as well as any news of note and/or upcoming events of interest to all of you.

I hope you will find "News from Nagle" to be a valuable resource and a fun, once-per-month read. And I wish you a successful and productive semester!
