Welcome from Julian Schuster, Provost and Senior Vice President

Hello, my name is Julian Schuster, and I am the Provost, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at Webster University. I'm absolutely delighted to welcome you, today, to our community.  A community of dedicated teachers, scholars, colleagues, all working toward one goal - to make educational experiences of our students memorable and meaningful.

At Webster, we have many resources, and I urge you to use those resources. Go to the Faculty Development Center, stop by the Academic Resource Center, visit the library, talk to the people in Student Affairs, and above all, talk to your colleagues, to your faculty colleagues, hear and learn from their stories, because their stories will enable you to make bigger and better impact on the lives of our students.

We are a truly global university, and within the global university we have a network of resources, which are all again at your disposal. Use those resources. Learn from the people far away, because their experiences, their stories, will enrich lives of your students and make you most successful as you are contributing in making this university a better place.

Again, thank you very much for choosing Webster University. I look forward to meeting you in person, to learn about you, to hear your stories, your experiences, because those experiences, now, will become part of the Webster University. Good luck and I look forward to seeing you.
