A Message from the Interim Chair

Feb 01, 2024

Dear UWW Interdisciplinary Studies Students,

Welcome to the Spring 2024 semester!

On behalf of all the faculty and staff here at UWW Department of Interdisciplinary Studies, I am thrilled to welcome each of you to our engaged community of online learners.

My name is Julie Skogsbergh, and I am a faculty advisor as well as the Interim Department Chair. I am truly grateful to have found a home at UWW where I have the privilege of working with many of you. There is nothing more joyful or fulfilling for all of us here than watching each of you achieve your dream of completing your bachelor’s degree!

We know that each of you have very full lives with various commitments and responsibilities, so I want to emphasize that we are all dedicated to providing you with a flexible and supportive learning environment. Our courses are designed to be accessible to students of all backgrounds and experiences. We also offer a variety of resources to help you succeed, all of which can be found in our Student Headquarters. If you have any questions, please reach out to your academic advisor or your faculty advisor (your UWW 305 professor). We all work together to support you!

I am confident that you will find a home at UWW, a degree completion program here at UMass that has been serving adult and non-traditional students for 52 years. Each one of us is here to help you reach your academic goals and achieve your dream of completing your bachelor’s degree. We look forward to getting to know you and helping you succeed. If you have any questions, please reach out. We are all here to support you.

I hope you have a wonderful spring semester! For those of you who are graduating this spring, we look forward to celebrating with you on campus (or virtually) in May.

Shine on,
Julie
