Every employee at Samford is in a position to lend support to our academic program.  In fact, that’s why we’re all here.  Last week I received this vignette from Dr. Kristie Chandler, Chair of Human Development and Family Science, reminding me of the important interaction between our students and the valued members of our staff:

As I was working in my office with the door closed (trying to grade…ugh!), I overheard one of our students who dropped by to speak with Susan Kalinich, our departmental  Administrative Assistant.  With great excitement, the student said, “Ms. Susan, I just ran my t-test for my senior research project, and my finding was significant!”  I am grateful to work in a place where administrative assistants are partners in the educational process of our students.

The world is better because of the attention our students receive from members of the Samford staff.
