A Personal Thank You to the Adelphi Family

Dear Adelphi Family,

As we come to the end of our first full week with almost 100 percent of us working and learning remotely, I want to recognize you and express my appreciation. These are not ordinary times. So thank you for being an extraordinary community.

As uncertain times swirl around us, I acknowledge how unsettling it is to be separated, challenged and away from the familiar. I want to stay connected with you, even when we are physically separated. I’m sending along a video message and encourage you to reach out throughout this semester. I am an email away, and my virtual office hours will begin soon.

Be kind, patient and good to one another, Panther family, and keep up the great work.

All the best,

Christine Riordan
