Letter from UNO's Faculty Senate
Hello UNO Mavericks!
Welcome to the fall semester of 2020!
This has certainly been a challenging year and I am sure many of you are feeling a broad spectrum of ripple effects from the pandemic. For some of us, it has been isolation. Others have no doubt been affected by unemployment, health issues, and other related stresses.
Yet, WE will succeed because, within all these challenges, there is one thing of which I am absolutely certain. Mavericks are strong together. This is why I am so excited for the UNO fall semester to begin. We will come together on campus, in classes, and in other campus activities. Yes, we will all be wearing masks and maintaining that safe distance, but together transcends six feet of distance and a few layers of fabric on our faces.
Together is how our Maverick community is going to flourish this year. Together...on campus, over zoom, and in our minds and hearts. As a faculty member, I can tell you that many of my colleagues are as eager to start this fall as I have ever seen them. We are looking forward to a fantastic year where we succeed in conquering challenges of all kinds, old and new, and we hope you are as well.
This year really could be our best yet!
