I’m glad that you’ve decided to visit Inside FAU, where you’ll find a variety of informative videos about the University. Webisodes are posted on this site periodically, with a view toward informing the FAU community about interesting new programs, special accomplishments by faculty and students, and other notable developments.

Our University is growing very rapidly in many ways. The State of Florida has just approved the establishment of an independent medical education program at FAU, and that represents a truly exciting advance. Our program will have a significantly broader focus than others, because FAU is partnering with the Scripps Institute’s Kellogg School of Medicine and Technology to offer the Ph.D. in biomedical science as well as the M.D. degree. This is a rare opportunity that places Florida at the forefront of education in biomedical research as well as state-of-the-art clinical medicine. It will make FAU a major supplier of the next generation of scientists who will work with such international research giants as Scripps, the Max Planck Society and the Torrey Pines Institute for Molecular Studies, all of which have partner relationships with FAU.

Other exciting developments are taking place throughout the University, as faculty members and students in all 10 colleges work to cross new frontiers in their fields of study. At the same time, FAU’s public profile has never been higher, thanks to events such as the recent visit to the Boca Raton campus of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet. Our University is quite literally taking its place on the national stage, and we are privileged to be playing a role in its growth at this historic moment.

I hope you will return to the Inside FAU site frequently throughout the year to get an insider’s look at some of the wonderful things that are happening at FAU. We have good reason to be proud!

Mary Jane Saunders, Ph.D.
