Thirty-five years flies by quickly! In 1984, I came to what was then the College of Oceanography because I met some great potential colleagues, and because the collaborative culture here fit my style of work. That proved to be a good decision, and over the years together we built a strong program in my field - learning about the present and future from records of past climate change. OSU has become a leader in this area, known around the world for its faculty, its facilities, and its results, and it has become a magnet for great students. The reasons are as they were long ago â€“ great colleagues and a collaborative culture that brings out the best in everyone. I hope OSU will preserve and build on that culture, which will advance our mission in the future as it has in the past.
