Lori at the Dairy Show.

Dear alumni and friends,

This marks the first issue of our magazine, CMCI Now, and I’m excited to share news from our students, faculty and centers. You'll receive CMCI Now four times a year electronically and a mailed print edition each fall.

As we pass our two-year anniversary as a college, we’re seeing positive growth on all fronts: the number of students entering for the fall is up 30 percent, we’ve received over $1.65 million in research grants since the college’s inception and we have doubled our faculty over the past two years.

I hope this issue catches you up on news from the college, and we welcome updates from you. We would also love for you to join us at our CMCI Homecoming reception or one of our many other events this fall. 

Warm regards,
Lori Bergen
