Honoring Indigenous Peoples’ Day

Please join me in honoring the Indigenous communities that have inhabited these tribal lands for more that 15,000 years as we recognize Indigenous Peoples’ Day. In doing so, we work in solidarity to combat ongoing invisibility, bias, and racism that negatively impact the well-being of Indigenous peoples.

Fall Dean's Letter October 2021

The pandemic has been my greatest test as a leader, but I took comfort in knowing I wouldn’t be making decisions alone.

Reflecting on 9/11

Today is a day for reflection – reflection about a terrible day, about those whose lives were lost, and about what each of us can do separately and together to help heal the world.

COVID-19 Relief for India

As the global COVID crisis continues to unfold, we share the world’s concern and empathize as witnesses to the growing humanitarian crisis occurring in India. The country is being taxed by the extraordinary demand for limited critical resources as an overwhelming number of people are diagnosed with COVID-19 each day.

Plans for 2021 Fall Term

Assuming continued improvements in vaccine availability and uptake over the summer and beyond, combined with improvements in public health measures and a reduced rate of community prevalence, we will return to something more similar to our pre-pandemic operations as described in today’s message from the University.
