During the event, the Dean hosted a Faculty dinner during the conference at Juree’s Thai Place.  Thank you to everyone who was able to come out and attend.  Like the Starship Enterprise, our little Faculty has had a few captains over the years.  The CSSE Dean’s dinner was also a great opportunity for reconnecting our last three generations of leaders.
