By now, I am sure you have read the sad news from President Conoley that our former Provost, Dave Dowell, died yesterday. We are all in shock to hear of this tragic news, and our hearts and thoughts are with his family. It is impossible to quantify what a great loss this is to the CSU and to Long Beach in particular. I know you will join me in sending sincere condolences to his family and I know that we will be a source of comfort and support to one another during this difficult time.
