A Message from the Provost

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the beginning of a new year and a new semester.

While the upcoming months hold some uncertainties, one thing I know for sure is that inspiring examples of innovative teaching and learning will continue to emerge from your classrooms, studios, labs and field studies. Even in these complicated times when so many of our activities are restricted, I look forward to hearing about your new and continued research and scholarship. Most of all, I’m counting the days until we can actually greet one another in person and celebrate our academic community

I appreciate the dedication and flexibility that you show to your students to keep them well, so I remind you of a fundamental rule of healthcare: In order to take care of others, you need to take care of yourself. We are in the midst of experiencing a variety of challenges, and I urge you to make sure you find time for self-care and take advantage of university services that might be helpful.

Thank you for all that you do,



Heather Coltman 2020
