After nearly 18 months of working, teaching, and learning remotely, we’ve begun our transition back to campus. Our staff have dusted off their desks, donned their masks, and eagerly anticipate the return of students, faculty, and scholars for the 2021-22 academic year. We have a busy fall event schedule ahead of us, and all of our public event series will either be held online or will have a virtual option. Be sure to RSVP, and we hope to see you on Zoom!
