Spring 2021 Newsletter

It’s April, which means that we’re preparing to finish the academic year and eager to fete the Class of 2021. For the second straight year, COVID-19 sends our graduation ceremonies online, but there is nothing virtual in the pride my colleagues and I feel in our graduates and their accomplishments. In the face of adversity and unorthodox learning and social environments, our students have persevered. We commend them. And I again commend my colleagues who have worked tirelessly to adapt their teaching and mentoring to ensure student success. Our department remains strong, and we continue to provide a high caliber education and, as you’ll read below, to accomplish much.
