Dear Students,

We hope you are doing well and staying safe during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Last week was the first week back after our extended spring break. I would like to recognize all of our students, faculty and staff for adapting to this new environment and ensuring a successful final few weeks of this semester.

I would also like to announce a new blog that will be of interest to you. Given the global dimension of COVID-19, it is important to look at how the international community, particularly the United Nations, is responding to the crisis. Please check out the blog created by our Model UN team here.

Please know that the faculty and staff of the Department of Government are ready to support you and answer any questions you have as we transition to the online delivery of classes for the rest of this semester.
