Faculty and Staff: Welcome to the Spring 2022 Semester

January 18, 2022

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the Spring 2022 semester. We had a very successful fall, and continue to adapt to changing environmental conditions this spring. To that end, semester-over-semester student retention looks strong, recruiting for fall 2022 is ahead of schedule, and our research awards currently exceed last year’s record-setting pace. This would not have been possible without your dedication and expertise. We expect a highly engaged spring semester, and look forward to working collectively to elevate our national and international standing. 

We thank you for your commitment to keeping our campus a safe place to work and study. You can reference our spring COVID protocols here; as a reminder, masks are required indoors and HEPA filters should be left running at all times.

We hope your spring semester is off to a wonderful start.
