Dear Ship Community,

I hope this message finds you healthy and safe.

I fondly remember being with you on campus… remembering your smiles against the backdrop of our beautiful campus…and remembering the good times we shared in helping students succeed.

We have been working on how we will reopen campus following CDC, PDE and State System guidance. Our primary focus is on well-being and student success. As we finalize our plans on how we navigate back to an open campus, we have been collecting feedback and listening to people across the campus community. We have and continue to review all of the valuable insights and they have greatly helped inform the framework for Fall 2020. Thank you for your willingness to engage in the process.

I plan to provide additional information by Monday June 15 regarding our plans for moving into Fall 2020.

Until then, please enjoy this video that captures what some of our colleagues remember.

Have a great weekend,

Laurie A. Carter
