Summer Hiatus
Dear reader,

We hope you have enjoyed our weekly newsletter.  It has been a fun and exciting year, as we feature the accomplishments of our faculty, staff and students. They all have done great things. And without them, we would not have any stories to tell or events to organize.

Summer, however, is here. The weekly newsletter will be on hiatus. We will use this time to re-imagine the newsletter for the upcoming academic year. Perhaps, we will create videos or podcasts instead of written pieces. The possibilities are endless.

We also welcome your feedback, comments and stories for future weekly newsletters. Please e-mail us at Thank you for your time. Have a good summer.

Hoang Ngo, Ph.D.
Program Assistant
