* Message from the Director *

Dr. Kenneth Thompson

New beginnings, changes and fresh starts – these words characterize the
start of each academic year. Here at Mason, change is constant and
brings many exciting opportunities. The BIS Program encourages you to
explore these opportunities, and we have created the first ever BIS
Program weekly newsletter to highlight many of them for our students. 

You will note that changes are happening at BIS. The program is moving
from our office space in the Aquia Building to a more central location
on campus in Robinson A, Suite 253. The move is scheduled for Friday,
August 21, and we will be unpacking on Monday, August 24. Please be
patient with us as we get settled in the week before Fall semester
begins. Your emails and phone calls will be returned as quickly as
possible.

Whether you are new to the BIS Program or in your final semester before
graduation, we wish you every success this semester.
