July 2: Spring 2021 Semester Update
I hope this finds you well and enjoying your summer. While somewhat hard to believe, we are now less than two months away from welcoming all of you back to campus. Plans for fall 2020 are well underway, and university faculty and staff are diligently working to preparing for, among other things, facility use, hybrid instruction, campus events, and, perhaps most importantly, campus health and safety.
