Happy Labor Day! (a week early), and some gratuitous faculty advice, deja vu all over again...

Submitted by Jerome on Mon, 08/29/2011 - 11:38am.

Here is my annual "gratuitous faculty advice"letter, that I send every Labor Day. This year I send it a week early.
The letter is long so I'll be brief:

1) I cannot thank you enough for your support over the years. Relying on a transient group of students and alumni for one's primary support group is a bit risky, but I am honored to be an integral part of this community, and very grateful for individual and collective support. Thank you! I will keep on trying to pay it forward.
