The fall semester is almost here, and I know the excitement this year is tempered by concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic. As we move through the challenges of these next few weeks and months, I promise to remain transparent and keep you informed of any important updates regarding the novel coronavirus and our safety protocols. To that end, I’ll host weekly town halls sessions on the University’s social media accounts. I plan to go live around 12:30 p.m. every Wednesday this semester on our Instagram and Facebook pages. If you have questions or concerns, I encourage you to attend these sessions. You can also send me questions or topics you think I should address. The town halls will remain on these social media pages, in case you miss a session, and I also plan to send video links to the campus community each week.
This is a challenging time, and I know the uncertainty can be a source of stress for many individuals. Please know that we are using every method we can to keep you informed so you can make an educated, effective decision about your own personal health and safety.
