students view my commitment to their success,” remarked Dr. Keating. “Student
success is the driving force behind every decision made at this institution. Every
new academic program we launch, every building we erect, every partnership we
enter into is an investment in our students, intended to prepare them to
prosper within their chosen field and to make an impact on the world around
