The VP Promise:
Enriching the CALS Student Experience

These are all excellent examples for how students can learn beyond the classroom. I believe every student should have this opportunity, and should get the support to participate if they need it. We want our students to experience an unparalleled collegiate journey that stands out among — and above — our academic peers. Join me in supporting this promise to our future leaders.
