Meeting Challenges Together

The last few days have been hectic as we all adjust to a new way of conducting our professional and personal lives, and I want to thank you for the forbearance and goodwill you have displayed in these trying times.  Thanks to your ingenuity and cooperation, we are adapting to these new conditions.

Because the situation remains fluid, changing at such a rapid pace, we have established a new website,, which is serving as a gathering place for accurate and timely information about events and conditions on campus.  Please check it regularly for the most up-to-date news.

And, as always, be sure to take care of yourself.  Your and your loved ones’ wellbeing is very important, so please follow common-sense precautions and practice social distancing whenever possible.

Again, thank you for all you have done and continue to do in support of our university community and all those we serve.  None of us knows what the next days and weeks will hold, but I am confident that working together we will get through this difficult period. 

Fiat Lux,

Chancellor Howard Gillman
