Good Sunday morning and Happy Labor Day weekend! This week-end signals the beginning of our Fall Quarter and the Return to Campus for so many.
I hope you enjoy this week-end, but PLEASE do not let your guard down in doing those things that are so essential for reducing the spread of COVID-19. As you gather (in small groups), please keep those masks on and keep your physical distancing. Consistently doing those things enables us all to be together in a safe way on our campus.
Yesterday, I spent much of the day going around campus to greet incoming students and parents. It was a wonderful day for me, and everyone that I saw was truly excited to be on campus.
A HUGE “Thank You” to all of our Rez Life staff and assistants, as well as our student leaders in different organizations, who have been out there this week-end in the heat while helping our students move their belongings into their residential facilities.
We have worked for six months to prepare for this week. Many have been involved in planning every aspect of the Return to Campus to ensure that our students, faculty and staff would have a safe and healthy environment, while enabling all to continue their educational pursuits with the great experiential learning opportunities that are the hallmark of Louisiana Tech’s academic programs. Granted, all things will not be done in quite the way that we would prefer, but they will be very effective in achieving our goals.
I encourage everyone to demonstrate patience (me too) and understanding while recognizing that students, faculty, and staff are all stretching beyond the norm to have a successful year. We should all recognize the emotional sensitivities that everyone is experiencing throughout this time of pandemic, social, and hurricane crises. We should all recognize and appreciate the differences of perspective and beliefs about those things that are happening around us. I encourage you to demonstrate acts of caring and kindness for all of those around you. Each act will make a positive difference for someone.
Finally, I want to express my most sincere appreciation to our Leadership Team members of Vice Presidents, Deans and Directors who have done enormous things over the past six months to keep our institution moving forward on a positive trajectory. Our Tech Family is blessed to have such exceptional leaders in each of our divisions.
Have a great Day!
