Message from the President

I am writing to share plans for the upcoming 2020-2021 academic year. As I said in a recent video, a lot of work has gone into planning how to offer a world-class liberal arts education to our students in the midst of the unfolding COVID virus crisis.

Thank you for your patience as we’ve worked through these important steps.

I want to confirm our plan to open and welcome students to campus in the fall for in-person residential learning and living.
