Scott Reed, Vice Provost for the Division of University Outreach and Engagement, retires at the end of this month: July 2019. In his final First Monday Update video, shot on his sailboat New Wave, he fittingly sprinkles sailing metaphors throughout his parting words of wisdom and look into the future.

Share your own words of wisdom, or well wishes, with Scott using the comment section below.

Scott’s videos first appeared as end of the year messages in December 2012 and 2013. First Monday Updates in text form materialized March 2014. Monthly videos started appearing regularly beginning in July 2014. That’s a five year and 60 video tradition, many of which Scott shot, edited and posted himself.
