Dear alumni and friends,

I hope this message finds you well in the new year. As we near the start of the spring semester, our advisers are working hard to connect with and support our students, our faculty are finalizing details for their spring courses and our students are persevering in an uncertain time.

Though we tackled many challenges in 2020, there are still many we will confront in 2021. In the College of Humanities and Sciences, that burden has been lessened for some of our students by the support of our alumni and donors through the Student Emergency Fund. I am so grateful for this resource that assists students who might not otherwise be able to complete their degree. Please know that your gifts have made an enormous difference.

Again, thank you for your encouragement and support. Take good care.
