CHHS Dean Charles Hardy

Dear Faculty, Students, Staff and Community Partners:

October is here and fall break has come and gone. Wow, it seems like only yesterday that we were welcoming faculty, staff and students to the start of fall semester 2016. I have now had the “Charge” meetings with all CHHS committees, advisory councils and task forces. I am very excited about each of the shared governance structures we have in CHHS and am very thankful to all faculty, staff and students who have agreed to serve in this capacity. I am excited to see the deliverables that are produced by all of these structures.

CHHS Talk is a stakeholder marketing tool. The purpose is to communicate about the many things going on within CHHS to remind us to remember why we do what we do. That is to say, this e-newsletter is CHHS being its best self! It is our hope that you find joy while reading CHHSTalk. Please send your feedback and future story ideas to
