We hope that you have managed to stay safe, healthy, and well during this complicated, scary, and difficult time. We have missed all of you, and are eager to get back on some sort of track in regard to the SEL Task Force. We fully realize and recognize that schedules, agendas and circumstances may have changed since our last meeting.
The goal of this meeting will be as follows: To look at past progress and to discuss what areas of support are needed to help our students and academic community now.
We can suspend some of the older conversations and pick up with working groups to determine solutions for today's issues.
Our meeting will be held virtually, from 3:30-4:30 on Tuesday, January 12th. The Zoom link will be sent out as we approach the meeting date.
If you feel like your efforts would be better focused on other areas in your life at this point, that is not a problem. Please let us know, and understand that your SEL Task Force service will be forever appreciated.
We look forward to seeing everyone! Be Well, Dave and Susan
