I hope you’ll join me in welcoming Rachel Farris to the university and seminary communities. Rachel joins us from the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota and will be the new director of public relations and internal communication on the shared services marketing and communication team. She has extensive experience in communication within higher education and in other nonprofit settings, along with a deep commitment to the diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging work that is so important at both institutions. I am confident that she will become a trusted partner to our colleagues on both campuses. 

Rachel’s first day was Monday. She can be reached at
