The Executive Dean's Message is a service of the SEBS and NJAES Office of Communications.

Welcome to the first edition of my newsletter in its new format. The newsletter is drawn from an array of news, stories, events, and other information posted to our Newsroom, a new website launched by the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences and the Rutgers New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station. This newsroom is a gateway for faculty, staff, students, alumni, and the various communities we serve to connect to our research; our faculty, staff, and student achievements; the multitude of events we host; and the work we do locally, nationally, and internationally. I urge you to visit the Newsroom regularly!
