As we all take a break this week and have the opportunity to reflect on what we are thankful for, I thank every student for choosing Tennessee Tech.

That choice inherently includes trust, and with that trust comes responsibility.

Every day at Tennessee Tech, a community of faculty, staff and administrators with different backgrounds, experiences and beliefs comes to work for one reason: to serve students.  That hasn’t changed. This is the context for any conversation about how students are treated inside and outside the classroom.

As a community we show respect for differences and encourage open dialogue. We show it to our students; we strive to practice it with each other.

I am thankful for the campus community that serves, and the students who choose us to serve them.

I wish you a peaceful and happy Thanksgiving break.

Go Eagles!
