Dear colleagues,

On this final day of the 2020-2021 academic year, we are writing to you in gratitude. 

For all that you have done for our community during this challenging year, we are grateful. Your work as mentors and teachers has sustained our students during a time when gathering in classrooms was impossible. You have shown exceptional care and compassion for colleagues during a time marked by disruption and loss. Thank you for all that you have done to help this community remain connected.   

We are looking ahead to the fall term with anticipation and excitement: we are looking forward to seeing you in and around campus, to working alongside you again, and to greeting you in person as colleagues and friends.  

Thank you again for your extraordinary efforts during this academic year. We wish you a restorative summer break. 

Stay safe and well, 

Alan, Jeff, Katie, Lynn, Marvin, and Tamar
