We were able to gather in-person this past May to celebrate the accomplishments of the graduates of the Classes of 2020 and 2021. We are now looking forward to the start of fall semester courses, which will resume on campus in early September. We are so excited to be returning to campus so that we might once again gather in-person and teach in our classroom spaces.
The pandemic has impacted the lives of our students, faculty, and staff in many different ways. And yet despite the challenges that have come our way as a result of COVID, I am pleased to let you know that our program remains strong, even during these difficult times.
The University recently transitioned to virtual learning in response to COVID-19. And although this situation has led to modifications in how we approach our teaching work, one constant that has not changed is our steadfast commitment to continued excellence in funeral service education.
