To our College of Health and Human Sciences Community
Dear CHHS Community,
I hope this message finds you and your loved ones healthy and well. Please know that the College of Health and Human Sciences is committed to protecting the health of our community while remaining focused on our academic, research, and community engagement mission. We are in this together, and we are with you.
To our students, we are so proud of your resilience, tenacity, patience, and success as we pivoted to remote learning last year. We were happy to see you as our campus returned to in-person living and learning and we look forward to an exciting fall semester. We are excited that 88% of classes will be in-person, and I want you to know that the campus is working diligently to deliver on our commitment that your learning experience, be it online or in the classroom, will be vibrant, rigorous, and engaging. Find more information on CSU’s COVID-19 website.
To our faculty, your impact on our students and our College community is immense. Regardless of the delivery format, your classes are robust and thoughtfully crafted. We know how hard you have worked and continue to work on behalf of students. Thank you for your ongoing commitment to the Ram standard of excellence.
To our staff, you are the backbone that supports our college and we appreciate your willingness to be nimble and take on every challenge this year has thrown at us.
To all of our Ram alumni, donors, and retirees across the nation, THANK YOU for staying engaged and connected with us. Many of you have reached out asking what you can do to help during this crisis. Your concern and generosity demonstrate our deeply held value that Rams take care of Rams. You can help students by making a gift to a new fund, Lighten the Load, established to provide grants for students’ unforeseen financial challenges and help them stay in school.
The College will continue to focus on optimizing health, well-being, and the development of people and the communities in which they live. Together, we rise. Let’s continue to offer compassion, kindness, and support to each other and to our neighbors and friends. We will continue to face and overcome challenges together. We are looking forward to fall with purpose and intention and a steadfast commitment to supporting and engaging every person in our community. We are strong. We are resilient. We are Rams.
