Successes in 2016 set a high bar for 2017!

Happy New Year!  As we embark on 2017, one of my new year’s resolutions is to be courageous in setting bold goals for the progress of the School of Rehabilitation Therapy in collaboration with faculty, staff, students and other stakeholders.  This work must build on our previous successes and address key areas that will support people and programs to move forward.  An important first step is to acknowledge what we accomplished in 2016 so that our goals go beyond what we have already achieved.  For this first blog of 2017, I wanted to highlight just a few of the School’s successes from 2016.
