    Three weeks into the fall semester, and it is apparent that all of you — students, faculty and staff alike — are working out the kinks of our new hybrid learning environment. I appreciate the grace that you have so repeatedly extended to each other as we get this semester underway. And of course, we continue to focus on the safety of our campus community and I am grateful to all of you for following the numerous protocols that have been put into place.

    It’s showtime! After months of preparation, we open our doors for the fall semester this Tuesday, September 7. There has been a lot of new guidance, procedures and policies announced over the summer and I thought it would be useful to refresh your memory as we start a new academic year.

    Next week we welcome new and continuing students, both remotely and in-person. As we approach the start of the fall 2021 semester, it is imperative that all members of the campus community are in compliance with our mandatory vaccination policy. This policy is a critical component of our plans to keep the campus safe. As such, the bulk of my weekly update has to do with getting compliance to 100%.
