Dear Friends and Colleagues,
This is just a note to thank you for the recognition that has come my way this year as the recipient of the EDUCAUSE Community Leadership Award for 2016. We have a strong and vibrant profession, which is made up of so many incredibly bright people. The future of our profession is in very strong hands, and it makes me quite humble to receive this award from our profession. For my leadership talk at the EDUCAUSE Conference, the topic will be "What the Internet is Doing to Us." This topic comes from a freshmen seminar at the University of Georgia that I led from time to time. I am looking forward to seeing so many of you in just a few short weeks in Anaheim.
