Message from Dean Johnson

I hope you enjoyed spring break and had some time to restore as we move into the last few months of the academic year. It was a little over a year ago that the pandemic required us to almost completely evacuate our residence halls and pivot to a remote learning environment. This pandemic year has been full of additional stressors, not the least of which are repeated instances or bigotry, hatred, and discrimination. Tuesday’s vicious killings in Georgia of mostly Asian women are the latest of the year’s horrific violence and happened within the context of growing anti-Asian crime throughout this country and the world. I share your grief and your anger.

Spring 2021 Welcome from Dean Johnson

I hope the new year and new semester are off to a good start for you and your loved ones. I find many things about which to be hopeful while simultaneously wondering if our nation can come together to fulfill the promise of an inclusive and equitable democratic society. I take heart in being part of a community that has shown so much resilience, strength, and faith in a better tomorrow, and I am grateful for the grace and flexibility you continue to afford Scripps staff and faculty. I know I speak for my colleagues across the College when I say we appreciate your understanding and patience during what has been a difficult time for us all.
