Hi there everyone!

I apologize for not publishing a January newsletter. My husband and I experienced an unexpected death of a family member who lived out of our state that required our immediate attention and a great deal of time to navigate.


Let's get ourselves up and get things moving!


Best,

Jennifer Johnson,

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Chairperson

Vice President for Student Involvement
