Adjusting our academic calendar to protect our campus community is just the first of what will be many major decisions that will take place quickly over the next few weeks now that we have the recommendations from the Re-Imagining Fall Task Force. As we develop guidance on how to implement these decisions, you will see an increase in updates and messages from me and other leaders across the university. We will be communicating in a number of different ways—including these twice-weekly campus updates. I urge you to keep watching your email for the latest information.
There are a lot of preparations that must take place in order to welcome our employees and students back to campus. Each of us has an important role to play in that work, and I thank you for your commitment to our mission of education, research, and service.
