Dear University Community,
It is my pleasure to present another wonderful edition of the university’s Accolades magazine. I would like to thank the contributors and behind-the-scenes organizers for their work to showcase examples of the best of the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences.
It has been over two years since the university joined the Laureate International Universities network. A phrase commonly heard at Laureate is Here for Good, which means:
“We believe society is best served when our students, faculty, and our entire organization use our collective skills and experience to create positive and lasting change. Our students and graduates are improving lives and making our world better. Our institutions are providing the critical skills, knowledge, and support to help make this happen.”
That description certainly resonates at our university. When you read the articles about the wonderful activities of our students, alumni, and faculty, you can see that we are also Here for Good. We bring so much value to society through our community projects, willing smiles, and eagerness to help others. Whether you are highlighted in this magazine or working day to day in a health care setting, as a collective community we make our world a better place. As an academic leader at this institution, I am proud of all who create positive and lasting change.
