A message to the ESPM community,
This is the second year that the COVID pandemic is forcing us to celebrate ESPM Gradfest online. Despite having spent more than one year working remotely, we have remained connected and learned new ways to build community. As we approach the end of the academic year, we in the United States start seeing light at the end of the tunnel and are thrilled about the prospects to be able to meet in person in the 2021-22 academic year.
This year has been filled with many accomplishments by every member of the community. While facing adversity, we continue to learn, to teach, and to serve in our various roles on campus. Among those many accomplishments, we owe a very large round of applause to our graduating students, who persisted through three semesters of pandemic distance-learning, teaching, and scholarship.
This group of students forged ahead and have come to the end of their journey as graduate students. We so very much appreciate the contributions and wisdom gained from each of these students, and we wish to congratulate each of them individually for their accomplishments.
Please learn more about each member's research on the ESPM symposium page. We celebrate their time here, and we are eager to continue to engage with them as they move forward in their careers.
Congratulations to our graduates!
