Transitioning to a New Way of Work

While we've faced significant challenges over the last year, we've also been offered an opportunity to reevaluate the way we work, collaborate, and connect across FAS. We look forward to finding new ways to work while continuing to to foster the FAS mission of excellence in scholarship and research.
