Because we recognize the power of a residential liberal arts educational experience, particularly as our nation also faces historic economic, political and social change, the college made a commitment to bring our students back for in-person learning this fall. While how we live and learn on campus has been altered, we have been able to offer a safe yet enriching intellectual experience for our students. That could not have been done without the unwavering commitment of our students, faculty and staff, and for that, I am grateful. This issue of Ursinus Magazine looks at how our Bears have responded to the COVID-19 pandemic and also features numerous alumni working on the front line of this unprecedented health crisis.
There are so many stories to share. May we all continue to remain positive for the future. Together, we are navigating this challenging moment, and I know there are brighter days ahead.
