A Message from Dean Terpenny Regarding COVID-19

At this time of national uncertainty due to COVID-19, my top priority as dean is to help ensure the health and wellbeing of our community in any way I can. As classes move online for the remainder of the spring semester, I am working diligently and quickly with leadership and staff throughout the college to assist students and faculty in ensuring as minimal disruption as possible to learning and the success of our students in any way we can. Similarly, we are dedicated to supporting the continued work and advances of our researchers and community partners, near and far. We have embraced best practices of social distancing through teleworking when at all possible. Together, as Volunteers, we will get through these challenging times. Thank you for your support!
