It is deeply gratifying to welcome students, staff and faculty back to campus, where the exciting work of making and thinking and writing about art and film will resume in person. When we come together again, I look forward to continuing the important conversations addressing systemic forms of racism in every part of our work, learning, and scholarship, and to continue to make strides toward greater diversity and inclusion. The challenges we faced during the pandemic gave us new tools. Let's put them to work!
