The college also benefitted from an increase in funding for research and set a record of $99.2M for grants awarded, and grant dollars increased more than 20 percent during his tenure. In addition, he led a new record of more than $37M raised in the last fiscal year, and his overall efforts during his tenure represent a 25 percent increase in funds raised for the college.
Please join me in thanking David for his contributions to our academic community and in congratulating him on his new opportunity at the University of Tennessee.
