Dear Faculty Colleagues,
With our campus now eerily quiet and members of the community scattered around the country and the globe, the impact of COVID-19 has hit home. Nothing could have prepared us for how this reality would make us feel—even after weeks spent monitoring the trajectory of the virus, consulting with experts, weighing different courses of action, and making and implementing the plans that have brought us to this moment at the college. We know that many of you, like both of us, are experiencing a range of emotions. Unfortunately, fears about our health and that of loved ones, uncertainty, frustrations, and isolation are now part of our daily lives.
