Western Education’s Professional Programs Start New Fall Term
Message from Associate Dean Pam Bishop:
Dear Colleagues and Students,
On behalf of the Graduate Programs Office, welcome back: We are so very pleased to see our new and returning students, as well as our highly dedicated colleagues. Already members of the Office have heard from numerous students (and nearly 100 of them attended the Graduate Orientations) about their excitement in relation to their Fall studies, and meeting their professors. Thanks to all of the students for the feedback about our Programs and their appreciation of our fine professors, supervisors, and instructors. We are proud that you are members of the Faculty of Education at Western.
All members of the Graduate Programs Office wish you well for the start of what we hope will be an enriching and productive year. We will continue to warmly welcome you to the Office and hope to be of assistance to you in Fall and beyond.
