I also want to take this opportunity to again thank Dr. Shawn Bergman for his outstanding service as the founding Director of the Office of Research Consultation (now renamed Research Data Analysis). Dr. Bergman successfully created a unit that now effectively serves faculty across all disciplines within the University. 

Please join me in welcoming Twila into her new role and thanking her for her willingness to serve!
