NOVEMBER 2022
cherry blossoms in bloom with building in background
There’s so much exciting Arts & Science news to share—from uncovering the history of life on Earth to exploring the oldest star clusters. Dean Melanie Woodin recently addressed the Dean’s Advisory Council, sharing updates on Faculty and University efforts to respond to global events, including the war in Ukraine, and a recent talk for students about democracy that featured alum Margaret Atwood. Don’t forget to update your contact info. Plus, congratulations to our Fall 2022 grads, a gift to spark a revolution in AI-based STEM research, our annual holiday crossword (with prizes!) and more.
