UVM Impact Newsletter, November 2019 Edition
Welcome to the November 2019 issue of IMPACT.  We appreciate this opportunity to share stories about UVM's graduate education and research enterprise, and we are very pleased to introduce  you to UVM's 27th president, Dr. Suresh Garimella.  IMPACT will be back with another issue in January, and on behalf of Dean Cindy Forehand and Vice President Richard Galbraith, we hope you have a safe and restful holiday season.
