As we continue to learn how to live our lives in a pandemic, I want you to know that I have heard and understand your questions and concerns. With more tools in our toolbox this year and a better understanding of the underlying science, we continue to consider your sentiments and those of our entire community as we adapt throughout this semester. Ultimately, our goal is to give our students the best education possible, and I thank you for your efforts in doing that.

Happy Labor Day! As we settle into our new routines, I hope you can find time for a moment of respite. Mental wellness continues to be a topic of great importance at W&M, and I encourage you to take steps to safeguard your physical and mental health and happiness.

As we gear up for a new academic year, I am eager to work with you to foster new growth and opportunity. If you are new to William & Mary, I issue this weekly “Top 5” email every Monday during the semester to help distill important information for faculty and to keep open the lines of communication. This year, I anticipate William & Mary flourishing in research, teaching and professional faculty development. Working together, we can ensure that William & Mary focuses on the wellness of our students, staff and faculty. We’ve all learned lessons from the past year, and perhaps the one that will assist us the most as we move forward concerns the importance of flexibility. This year will require all of us to remain resilient and to offer support to one another so we may continue to incorporate as many in-person elements as possible on campus. I look forward to our achieving that together.
