As we prepare for a short break to celebrate Thanksgiving with friends and family, I want to extend my deepest appreciation and heartfelt thanks to each of you. You have embraced the unimaginable challenges of a pandemic semester coupled with a devastating hurricane and worked tirelessly to help ensure a successful semester for our students. You have faced additional responsibilities, disruptions, relocations and inconveniences on campus while juggling the personal impacts of Ida on your family, friends and property. You have been selfless. You have been remarkable.
Please know how very thankful I am for you and your continued commitment to the mission of our University. I hope your break is filled with 4 Rs - Rest and Relaxation so you will be Refreshed and Recharged for a strong finish to this memorable semester!
Wishing you and those you love a wonderful Thanksgiving!
All the best,
