This is a time of year I find especially gratifying. As our students graduate and enter their respective fields, it serves as validation for all we do at ECPI University. Their success is a direct reflection of the talent and dedication of our faculty, staff and, of course, the graduates themselves.
While earning a degree is an accomplishment for most anyone anywhere, I believe our students are special. Most hold full-time jobs and a great many are also raising families, all the while spending up to 20 hours a week in class. Yet, they still find time to help others. As you read this edition of eConnect, you will see myriad examples of students, faculty and staff joining together to help others in need.
I have no doubt that these graduates are going to make their mark in the world. They’ve already demonstrated they have what it takes to succeed. They’ve been inspired by the success of our alumni and have developed the confidence to make a difference, in the workplace and in the communities in which they live.
