Dear University Community,
- the act or process of moving,
- abundance of events or incidents,
- rapid progress of events.
As I read this edition of Accolades, the word movement came to mind. It is our graduates focusing on the restoration and adaptation of physical movement. It is the movement of our students and alumni into exciting realms of rehabilitation, community service, and education. It is a university that is growing its educational influence nationally and internationally.
Movement is taken for granted when we have it, yet can be a major disruption to one’s lifestyle or an institution’s mission when it is lost. We have to actively engage our muscles to maintain our motor control and independence. We have to move our students’ minds intellectually to help them reach their goals. We have to move into new program offerings to remain a vibrant health sciences university.
Movement is important at many levels and is key to keeping us heading in the direction of our dreams and desires.
Celebrate movement. Anticipate movement. Embrace movement.
