On Wednesday, September 15th, the College of Arts and Sciences Administrative Assistants’ Professional Enrichment Series began its 2010-11 activities with a lunch meeting in the Greaton Room. Group Facilitator Mary Feeney welcomed the participants to a new year and read the following message from Dean William Madges:
The Dean’s Office supports professional development because, as a Jesuit institution, we are committed to supporting each individual in the fullest development of herself and because we are committed to the magis–continually striving to take the very good things we currently do to higher levels of excellence. I applaud all who choose to participate in these sessions.
