Message from Department Chair Regarding COVID-19 Precautions

Dear all,
We are in the midst of unprecedented events, but that's how outbreaks tend to be. Such times of social isolation are when communities pull together. The Department of Global Studies will be physically shut down but virtually your professional home during this period. Faculty will move their classes online and continue advising undergraduate and graduate students. Graduate research will continue as planned, and so will undergraduate instruction. The staff with the highest amount of contact will create online spaces for interaction, and all are here to ensure the smooth operation of the department.
It will be strange and unfamiliar. But we will get through it. Please stay healthy and safe. Thank you all for the creativity and care that is already evident.
Warm regards,
Professor Bishnupriya Ghosh
Department Chair, Global Studies
