Our COVID-19 Community Standards will remain in place during the summer months, but we are making several important changes that take into account recent changes in state and local guidelines thanks to the growing number of people in our community who are vaccinated, and advice from our health and medical experts.
Many of us have missed seeing each other around campus this year. The best way to ensure that experience returns and is safe for all is to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
Congratulations on making it to LDOC and thank you for coming together to make this semester a success.
Blouin will continue to serve until a new executive vice chancellor and provost is named, most likely by late fall. We will commence a nationwide search later this month, and I will provide an update on that process once a search committee has been finalized.
