Letter from the Chair


Dear APAM Family,

2017 is almost over. Despite turbulent times, APAM has maintained its progress and is in excellent shape.

As you will see from the various reports in this newsletter, we are able to look back at a year of solid accomplishments. Our climate program is getting world-wide recognition. Our new faculty members are garnering grants and honors, and we are particularly proud of the awards our graduates are receiving on their thesis work.

I am also pleased to report that this will be the last year-end letter I will write; I am stepping down as Chair at the end of June 2018 after six years of service to our beloved APAM.

I wish all of you and yours Season’s Greetings and a happy, healthy, prosperous New Year.

Best regards,

I. Cevdet Noyan
Chair, APAM
