Welcome to the 2019-20 academic year! I hope that you had a wonderful, relaxing summer with friends and family and that you are ready for a positive and productive start to the fall semester. The Patton College is where Learning Has No Limits! All of our programs—from teacher education to retail merchandising, from hospitality to recreation studies, from counseling to higher education—will challenge you and prepare you for life after graduation. The work you do today will help shape your future, and I encourage you to participate, contribute, and lead by example.
The Patton College of Education is honored to recognize Dr. Danita M. Brown Young, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, as our August Alum of the Month.
