Dear 2023,


I hope you’re all staying healthy and doing well. I know that this is a confusing time, so just be in touch if you have any questions. If you’d like to connect via Zoom, please sign up for a time to meet here.


Please make sure that you’re looking over the website focusing on reactivating campus, particularly the FAQ section.




More information about taking a leave of absence (as well as the leave form) is available here.  You have until August 30 to submit the leave of absence form.


For remote study, please be in touch with me and I will update your status for the term.



A few announcements:



A complete list of the webinars can be found on the Town Halls/Webinars page of the Reactivating Campus website.


This week:


Thursday, July 30, 2020
FGLI Town Hall
4:00 p.m. ET



Professor Katja Kolcio has announced a new course; it sounds really interesting:


CSPL/CGST480 ENGAGED PROJECTS is  a 1-credit course in which students design a semester-long project around a topic of their choice that engages the broader public. EPs respond to this critical moment in history by empowering students to connect their academic pursuits to what is happening in the world around them; they deepen student learning and self-reflection, ease the undeniable challenges of online and hybrid learning, and introduce students to their own agency and positionality in society.


More information is available here and here.


Again, please send me a note if you have questions; I’d be glad to connect.
