Richard J. Henley and Susan L. Davis Dean
Welcome to the Colin Powell School!
We begin this term with all of the challenges wrought by the pandemic, but we look ahead with an optimism that 2021 will be better than 2020. On that front, I want to draw your attention to a remarkable set of opportunities aimed at assisting you in reaching your educational and professional goals. We are ready to serve and support you, and to provide you with an outstanding spring semester experience.
First, I encourage you to watch the above recording of our event earlier this week about how to make the most of online instruction. It features students and faculty talking about the virtual experience and lots of helpful tips for how to take best advantage of what’s available this semester and how to take care of yourself during this difficult time.
Second, while we are online, we have enhanced the range of available advising, mentoring, fellowships, and career and professional development opportunities. We will be writing again over the next few weeks with more information on all of this. Visit our website and follow our social media channels (FB, Instagram, Twitter) to keep up-to-date on all the ways you can enhance your education and plan for your future career. We have resources in peer tutoring, stress management, counseling, food assistance, and emergency grants designed to facilitate your educational experience. If you run into problems or simply have questions as you begin the term, please reach out to professors, advisers, and the Dean’s office.
Please consider us a source of assistance in these uncertain times. Your success is the Colin Powell School’s highest priority, and we look forward to a good semester together.
With best wishes,
Richard J. Henley and Susan L. Davis Dean | Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership
