A message from Winston and Monique

Colleagues,

Particularly in light of today’s communication about cancelling/postponing campus events, we write to thank you for your continued adaptability and flexibility surrounding campus’ COVID-19 planning activities. You’re doing a wonderful job of preparing for future contingencies, while maintaining your current level of exemplary service to our students.

Please be assured our Student Affairs’ leadership team is committed to ensuring you have access to the latest information and recourses about COVID-19 preparation. We are on planning calls daily with the Senior Academic and Administrative Operations Centers, and convening our AVPs, directors, and managers throughout the week to share updates, answer questions, and strategize about short-term and long-term impacts to the student experience. Keep in mind, the university’s public health guidelines are always closely aligned with those of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. As President Folt recently wrote in a letter to parents, we are approaching all decisions thoughtfully and nimbly, and will continue to provide updates.

Our main goal in writing to you today is to assure you that we have our student and staff health and wellbeing at the top of our minds. Please remember to visit the university’s dedicated web page that is updated as soon as we have important news to share, and ask your manager if you have any specific questions not covered in campus-wide communications. Please also focus on your own wellbeing by staying home if you are sick, washing your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, covering a cough with your elbow or sleeve, and avoiding touching your nose and mouth.

Fight On!

Warmly,

Winston and Monique
