Florida Atlantic University is a public university that currently serves 27,000 undergraduate and graduate students on seven campuses in South Florida. Since its founding in 1961, FAU has awarded degrees to more than 100,000 alumni, and I am very proud to count myself among them.
Like today's students, I found FAU's faculty second to none in excellence of classroom teaching and mentorship of students. This truly outstanding community of scholars makes the university experience come alive for students, broadening their horizons in a multitude of ways.
Though less than 50 years old, FAU is already claiming a place among America's most productive research universities. Discoveries are being made today in FAU laboratories that will add to the arsenal of diagnostic and treatment tools used in the battle against cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer's disease and a host of other deadly illnesses.
It is my great privilege to lead Florida Atlantic University during this period of transformative growth and progress.
