CSE Welcomes Undergraduate Students Back to Campus
By CSE Executive Director, Jeffrey Mittelstadt


Welcome back undergraduates! We missed you.


The CSE team is thrilled to see you in person as this new academic year gets underway. Last year was filled with incredibly difficult challenges for all of you and society as a whole. You should be proud of your accomplishments as you confronted social injustice, stayed focused on your studies and maintained your resilience during the pandemic. We know that you are excited to be back and regain that special sense of community unique to campus life.


You inspired our team to work tirelessly to advance sustainability in the undergraduate business program. During the last academic year and this past summer, we were excited to have 21 undergraduate interns! We will continue to involve our interns in everything we do. › Read More
