Abigail Tilton, Ph.D., Dean of the TWU College of Arts and Sciences, and Patton Griffith, Director of Development for the College of Arts and Sciences, visited with alumni at a dinner held Wednesday, February 19, at the Lona Cocina restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Tilton provided an update on the departments and programs within arts and sciences, including a new professional master's degree in biotechnology, partnerships with the Institute for Women's Leadership and Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy, pioneering research into opoid alternatives, and a new science and research center currently under construction on the Denton campus.
"It was a pleasure to meet and talk with so many of our alumni, who shared their experiences, skills and knowledge gained during their time at TWU. Attendees weren't only from the College of Arts and Sciences; multiple colleges, departments and even generations were represented within our party," said Tilton.
"I enjoyed the opportunity to visit with our alumni, discussing our plans and progress in revamping our alumni chapters and increasing our outreach and engagement," said Griffith. "We are spreading the good news about the developments taking place on campus and it's electrifying. Great things are happening and we invite all of our alumni to join in the celebration."
Seventeen alumni attended the dinner, which was the first of many scheduled to take place around the nation.
