Greetings from more than a six-foot distance!
Along with you and everyone else, we have been adjusting to the new normal that is living in a world with COVID-19. This includes working remotely, with all the joys (pets!) and struggles (technological snafus!) that come with the territory.
By now, most of you are aware that all LearningLife courses and Headliners events that take place prior to August 31, 2020, have been canceled in adherence to University policy. In many, but not all cases, spring and summer offerings have been rescheduled for fall, and we are so grateful for the patience you’ve shown as we have worked, and continue to work at a feverish pace to sort through the cancelations, refunds, and reschedules, and work on future programming.
Many of you have extended additional support by declining your refund in support of the program and college. Truly, we have all been energized by your notes of concern for our well-being, as well as your spirited messages and gifts.
Our great hope is that you will stay tuned as we work to bring you good things to come! As always, the best way to stay in the know, is via this electronic publication, as well as its companion Headliners News.
We also hope you’ll take advantage of some of the great online offerings (both free and fee-based) that are being offered through the College of Continuing and Professional Studies and other colleges and organizations at the University.
As we work—alone but very much together—we strive to stay positive, stay well, and of course, #StayHome! We hope the same is true for you and yours.
Anastasia Faunce. Program Director
Vivien Oja, Program Associate
(And as a bonus in the photograph, our good friend and collegiate partner, Dr. Kate Schaefers)!
