A Letter from the Dean

Monday, March 23, 2020

Dear Alumni and Friends,

I hope that this note finds you safe and well during the uncertain times that we are facing during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) global pandemic. Every day brings a new challenge and business as usual is anything but that, at least for the time being.

While I am excited for you to read some inspiring stories about our faculty, alumni, and students in this latest edition of our bi-annual magazine, I think it is important for you to know that this issue was written, edited, designed, and printed before current events and without knowledge of the challenges that face our school, University, and society at large. I believe context is important and want to acknowledge why there is a void of stories or mentions of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and its many impacts.

With that, I hope you enjoy this spring 2020 issue and that it reminds you of the strength, power, and inspiration of the Carlson School community. Thank you for being a part of it.
