Honor's Day

As you are no doubt aware, in-person Honor's Day Celebration has been cancelled due to the pandemic. Nevertheless, I am excited to acknowledge the contributions each of you make to our vital and thriving College of Science and Mathematics.

My name is Kimberly Wallin. Starting March 9, 2020, I began a new chapter of my career by serving as your dean of the college of science and mathematics. Like you, I know what it feels like to push myself out of my comfort zone, to explore, to discover, and to achieve.

Many people want to place science and mathematics in tidy boxes of logic and thinking. That isn’t entirely correct. Your critical thinking is your art. In Latin, intelligence means ‘to choose between.’ Choosing to explore and discover and push your limits – you only know the limits of where you have moved from. Behind you are the old lines of your comfort zone. Ahead of you is uncertainty, and to live with uncertainty is the great art of living. Ahead of you are new adventures, new discoveries, and new lines of comfort you will cross!

I sincerely thank the generosity of our donors, who support your achievements and lead by example to explore, to discover, and push boundaries.

Congratulations on earning the awards and recognition of academic achievements and personal growth. You are the College of Science and Mathematics!
