Dean's message, 2020

Dean Joseph AistrupWelcome back, colleagues. I hope the holiday breaks have proven to be restful and restorative.

We are already headed toward another exciting and successful new year. We kick off 2020 with the opening of the new band rehearsal hall. The new addition provides comfortable rehearsal space for the entire Auburn University Marching Band, as well as other music ensembles. It also has faculty offices, instrument and uniform storage, and a multi-use gathering area to serve students, faculty, staff and the public.

Our strategic planning committee is finalizing CLA’s five-year plan. I appreciate all the feedback from our faculty, staff, students and alumni. This comprehensive plan will serve as a guide for our strategic initiatives over the coming years. 

We have a full calendar of events this spring. I encourage you to attend a lecture, theatre production, recital or exhibition, all of which showcase the College’s diverse areas of expertise and incredible talent. 

Have a wonderful semester. 

War Eagle!
