A Message from Dean Bates

Sunday, April 5, 2020 - 10:30am

Greetings, everyone. I realize it’s been a challenging couple of weeks and I want you to know how much I value your contributions. Whether it’s learning how to interact (and teach!) using online platforms, to going above and beyond to support your community, to exercising unmatched patience with your significant other, parents, children, and pets – all who are also working remotely and living with you! I also wanted to acknowledge some of the great work that’s recently been published.

If you have more good news or your personal video of positive deviance, please email because we would love to hear about it.

Please continue to take good care of yourself, and one another.
