Watch where our story is taking us

April 23, 2024 — 

Congratulations and thank you for all your hard work and contributions! This academic year was one to remember. Bison athletes got us cheering and feeling an immense amount of pride. Student artists, musicians and actors moved us with their talent. Many of you did co-ops or exchanges and grew in new ways, sharing your skills with others. You got another step closer to the future you’re building here, and you are a part of a community that’s shaping our world.

When we launched MomentUM: Leading Change Together a few weeks ago, the energy in the room was hopeful and proud. We played our inspiring new brand story at the launch, reminding us all of what connects us together—our drive to challenge ourselves and help our communities.

May this message remind you that you are part of the herd, and we move forward together, with passion and determination. Our futures are bright, and we inspire not only each other, but the world around us.

Congratulations on finishing a great school year! I’m excited to see many of you in the coming weeks at Spring Convocation. For everyone else, I’m thrilled knowing that you are only just getting started in exploring this campus and that we have many more stories to write together.

Good luck and all the best,
Michael Benarroch, PhD
President and Vice-Chancellor
