Dear students, faculty and staff:
It is my great pleasure to join you as your new president and I eagerly look forward to the fall 2021 semester!
The new term will not be without challenges. The COVID-19 pandemic has now entered into a new phase: the delta variant, the now ubiquitous strain of the virus, is taking the disease in a new direction. Young, unvaccinated people are being hit hard and hospitalizations are rising.
