Dear students and alumni,
Our country is in the midst of an uncertain time. Among many things, the COVID-19 crisis is creating isolation, confusion and even apprehension. Although it seems counterintuitive, this global crisis is also encouraging connection, creativity and some of the greatest acts of human kindness that we’ve ever seen. It brings me hope to see people supporting each other in times like these.
I am grateful for all of our students and alumni who are on the frontlines, fighting this virus every day. You are heroes in every sense of the word. I am also grateful for the faculty and staff at CSU, many of whom are doing the same. Thanks to the hard work and quick actions of our employees, we have been able to transition more than 400 employees to work remotely and not miss a beat in serving our students and alumni.
Now, more than ever, is a time to band together. We know that many of you are spending more time at home. Maybe you are with your family or friends, or maybe you are staying connected virtually. Either way, I hope that you are staying in touch with the ones you love.
Your CSU family is here to serve you in any way you need, whether it’s spending more time to focus on finishing your degree program, or talking through your plans for pursuing another degree. Whatever you need, we are all banding together to deliver the best help possible, despite the unusual circumstances.
As always, thank you for being a valuable member of the CSU family. Let’s move forward together.
