A Message from James

Community Engagement
This university represents what is germane to what education -- especially higher education -- should reflect. Southern’s location in the heart of New England, at a mid-point between New York and Boston, provides prospective students and faculty access to a wealth of resources that enhance the educational experience.
As a former faculty member and long-time administrator, I continue to relish the opportunity to assist colleagues in strengthening and building new relationships and partnerships between the university and local and statewide communities. These relationships enable colleagues and representatives from the business, industry, education, labor, nonprofit, and political sectors to engage in dialogue around issues that have meaningful impact across all socioeconomic and geographical boundaries.
