Dear Faculty and Staff Colleagues,
As we near the one-month mark of this new and different spring term at Tuck, I want to again thank you for all you have done and continue to do in support of our academic mission.
I especially want to thank our Admissions team and faculty and staff colleagues for their work in crafting a vibrant and successful Virtual Admitted Students Week, which concluded Wednesday afternoon. The admitted students and partners who took part appreciated the richness of our virtual programming and the opportunity to interact with so many of you. Thank you for your continued strong efforts to help to build the best possible Tuck class of 2022 in these challenging times.
As you know, Admitted Students Week is not the only Tuck milestone we are having to deliver virtually this academic year. Yesterday’s news that we cannot come together as planned for Tuck Investiture, while indeed difficult, underscores our need to remain vigilant in preventing the spread of COVID-19. We look forward to working with our T’20 class and with you in reimagining this important occasion for our graduating MBA students and their families.
You can find today’s end-of-week message to students here.
Thanks, and a restful weekend to all.
