Welcome Back Week
Welcome to the 2021-2022 academic year! I hope you had an enjoyable summer. We are working diligently to relieve some of the stress and provide you with opportunities to learn and work in the safest and healthiest environment possible given the ever-changing dynamics of the COVID-19 pandemic.
As we prepare to welcome back students, we invite you to attend in-person and virtual workshops. The schedule of events is located on the Welcome Back Week webpage. I especially want to mention our Welcome Warhawks event on Tuesday, Aug. 24 at 2 p.m. in the Hamilton Room or Webex. I am looking forward to discussing my goals and visions for the academic year.
Provost John Chenoweth will present the Academic Affairs Fall Forum in-person event on Tuesday, Aug. 24 from 9:30-10:15 a.m. or the same content will be offered virtually from 10:15-11a.m. I also encourage you to review the ICIT Technology Open House featuring the latest technology tools, services and resources designed to help students, faculty and staff succeed at UW-Whitewater. This year’s event will take place on Wednesday, Aug. 25 from 1:30-4 p.m. in the Hamilton Room.
I look forward to our Welcome Warhawks event on Tuesday, Aug. 24, and I hope you take advantage of the workshops and events the entire week—beginning on Tuesday, Aug. 17. We have an outstanding array of programming planned to help kick off the academic year.
Together, we can help UW-Whitewater continue to move forward.
