To all members of the Faculty, including academics, staff and learners,

As we come to the end of an extraordinary academic year, we look forward with cautious optimism and hope. Planning for the Fall semester is underway, and we are working with the University to finalize a return to campus, taking into account vaccine rollouts, operational needs, space and other factors.

It is our priority to stay connected with and remain accessible to members of the Faculty, and we want to ensure you have ample opportunity to ask questions or present any concerns that you may have.

To this end, we are holding a virtual Special Town Hall meeting for all members of the Faculty, including academics, administrative and support staff, and learners on Tuesday, June 8 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  Please be sure to save the date.
