Letter from the Chair

Dear Friends of APAM,

I am delighted to report a successful conclusion to the 2016-2017 academic year.

As you can see from the attached reports, our graduates have been successfully placed in jobs or graduate schools, our faculty have been recognized for the important work they do and, thanks to our staff, the administrative machinery facilitating our mission has performed flawlessly.

We now start a two month period of recuperation and preparation. Rest assured that APAM will be ready to take on any challenges it might face in the upcoming school year.

I wish all of you a restful and productive summer.
