Time to Celebrate: End of the Launch Year

Congratulations to all who have contributed expertise and energy to the launch year of the University Studies Program.  Thank you!!

On Friday, May 2, members of the USP Teaching Community and first-year students gathered in the Scott Hall lounge to celebrate the many successes of this year. (Thank you, Residence Life!) To commemorate this launch year, three new teaching and learning awards were established. The nomination statements for instructors and students were filled with inspiring affirmations of teaching and learning excellence. For a complete list of nominees, see the USP Facebook page HERE.
