The President's Post
  I am always proud for visitors to see our campus and for us to share our generous hospitality. We recently had two groups of important people on campus, and each group was impressed by our sense of friendliness as a University community and our caring nature as a campus family. You make me proud to be your President. The fall meeting of the Board of Trustees was another rousing success. I wanted this meeting to be a celebration of the Board members and a recognition of their conscientious work, faithful dedication, and unwavering belief in the University of the Ozarks and all of us. And it was. Our recent successes are due to the Board of Trustees and each member's commitment to our mission and support of our vision. The Board appreciated having so many of you -- faculty, staff, and students -- serving on the various committees and attending the Saturday morning meeting of the full Board. Your insights, suggestions, and candor allow Board members to better understand this campus and to make decisions with more information and awareness. I liked the open atmosphere of our Board meetings and am please we have eliminated the behind-closed-doors, shroud of mystery that usually accompanies meetings of that nature. Our collegial process is working, and I thank all of you for your involvement. We also hosted the Presidents of the other private universities in Arkansas for their annual conference. I am the chair of that group for this year, the Association of Arkansas' Independent Colleges and Universities, and I felt truly privileged to have my colleagues join us on our campus. Many of you helped to make the meeting a success. I especially appreciated the involvement of our students who served as tour guides, provided musical entertainment, and took time to visit with the conference visitors. Through your efforts, we again demonstrated why Ozarks' students are second to none. Thanks for all you do!
