I am delighted to welcome more than 3800 new and continuing College of Technology students. According to the recent enrollment reports, we have advanced significantly toward being among the largest colleges on this campus. We are proud that all of our academic areas have steadily demonstrated outstanding growth each semester and academic year. As an example, according to the first class day records, student enrollment in the Information and Logistics Technology Department has exceeded the 1400 mark, which is 24% more than spring 2012. The Human Development and Consumer Sciences Department grew by 21%, promising to expand even more with new developments like the launch of the new M.S. in Global Retailing beginning in fall 2013.
We sincerely appreciate the continued interest and expressions of support from our students, alumni, and friends. You are an important part of our "family." We are looking forward to your involvement with the College of Technology and UH this semester.
And to our students, my hope is that you have a great semester.
With warmest regards,
Dean William F. Fitzgibbon, III
