Power of Team Work
When I was away from campus on academic leave (sabbatical) between January and June this year, Dr. Chris Simpson served as the acting dean, and he kept me updated on all the major developments in the Faculty of Health Sciences. In our conversations, I was always pleased to hear how well things were going. Our new educational programs were launching successfully. Our faculty members were conducting impactful research. And our student satisfaction levels continued to be extraordinarily high.
