I am so pleased to welcome our new and returning students, and our outstanding community of faculty and staff, to the 2022-23 academic year. We have long been anticipating a return to a more “normal” start to the year and, while we must be mindful that the pandemic is ongoing, it is nonetheless exciting to be back on campus for in-person learning and all the collaboration and networking opportunities we have been looking forward to.

Returning to in-person learning is a significant transition that will be unique for each of us. I encourage you to embrace the many opportunities it provides and to be kind and supportive of one another as we continue to adjust and find our rhythm again. Remember that the University has curated many helpful tips and resources for students, faculty, and staff on the UTogether portal that can be used throughout the year.

It feels good to be back. I can’t wait to see what we will accomplish together this year!
