Campus Message to Students 10-01-15

Dear Salukis,

I am honored to join SIU Carbondale today as your interim chancellor and look forward to meeting you as I become reacquainted with this great university. I was a faculty member, department chair and associate dean at SIU in the past, so I know the university well and am committed to ensuring that you have the tools you need to succeed.

My goal during my first weeks on campus is to meet with and learn from as many individuals as possible – to hear your thoughts about what makes us special, what we can do better, and what opportunities you see ahead for SIU. Meanwhile, if you have ideas to share or questions to ask of the chancellor’s office, please feel free to share them here.

Thank you for choosing SIU. I look forward to connecting!


Brad Colwell
Interim Chancellor
