Checking in with Dean Forbes -- January 2022

I hope your spring semester is off to a good start. Despite the ongoing challenges posed by the pandemic, the campus community is highly vaccinated and policies are in place to allow for flexibility as we navigate this latest surge in infections. Uncertainty and disruptions continue, however, so please continue to take measures to prevent spread and support one another to the best of your abilities. Please do what you can to stay healthy and be kind to yourself and others.

Checking in with Dean Forbes -- December 2021

With the end of the semester in sight, I want to start by thanking you for making the transition back to campus as smooth as it could be. While we continue to navigate the uncertainties so familiar to us all now, your efforts made it possible to provide students with those incredibly valuable in-person experiences from working in a lab to learning to collaborate effectively in Foundations and other courses, and much more.
