As the academic year, 2020/2021 semester ends, we recognize the achievements of our students and staff over the past year. This year has been different from the previous ones in so many ways. Yet here we are — ending a successful semester, We congratulate you on a job well done, as you start preparing for the new academic year, 2021/2022. This optimism is not to suggest that we are done with the pandemic. But certainly, after more than a year of having to pivot in the face of COVID-19, this moment of the completion of the academic year is worth our gratitude to everyone associated with our University for helping to make it happen. To reach this point has taken a focused and determined effort by all of you.
