New year new opportunities

As we move into the routine of the winter semester, I hope time with family and friends over the holiday break has allowed you to come back feeling recharged and ready to take on a new year.

This term offers many opportunities for us to come together as a community. I look forward to getting to know you better over the coming months.

Our community has had some remarkable successes and accomplishments over the past year. We were reminded of some of these achievements with the recent launch of UNB’s Annual Report, which I encourage you to review if you haven’t already.

It inspiring to hear of the triumphs and successes of our students, faculty, staff and alumni. These examples of innovation, critical thinking and leadership are what our world needs now more than ever, and they inspire my belief that at UNB we have the expertise and commitment to confront challenges to foster opportunities.

At UNB, we are on the right path to grow and seize opportunities to make our communities stronger. As we move ahead with our new strategic vision, we will confront some of the grand challenges facing our communities and will continue to serve the public good through the way we teach, the way we discover and the way we engage our communities.

The world needs more UNB. Let us be bold, seize opportunities and tell our story loudly and more often. Here are some of the stories we can celebrate today.
