An Afternoon with the Dean

On Thursday, November 1st, the Dual Degree Program hosted an intimate reception for students to mix and mingle with the Dean of Arts, as well as program faculty and staff. It was a great afternoon for the students to catch up with each other, and hear from the Dean, Gage Averill, who recanted the the successes of the Dual Degree students. The Associate Dean, Academic, Stefania Burk, currently the Program Chair, spoke about the renewal of the contract, and introduced the new Advisory Committee, which consists of key faculty for the program. Gautier Parthon de Von, President of the Dual Degree Students’ Association also spoke about his experiences in the program and how the newly elected Dual Degree Student Association executives  plans to support and engage students in the program over the next year.
