What I Find Rewarding About D&E:

There is a comfort and sense of belonging at D&E that I felt when I was a student here, and again when I returned as faculty. It truly felt like a homecoming and I know with certainty that this is where I belong. It is such a joy working with the students and helping them achieve their goals and realize their dreams.
