These are unprecedented times at Saint Mary’s and for universities around the world. But it is also a time to unite. Staying connected through regular communications is one way to help alleviate anxiety, clear up ambiguity, and plan a path forward.
To better provide you with the information you will need, the Office of Advancement and Communication will be implementing all-encompassing regular email updates on Tuesdays and Thursdays dedicated to answering all of your questions about the university’s COVID-19 response and plans, sharing information from campus offices, and highlighting the great things you continue to do.
How can you contribute? Email firstname.lastname@example.org with:
- Your news — How are you adjusting to the new “normal”?
- A selfie of your new “classroom” or learning space.
- A link to the best tool you’ve found to make life easier and tell us how it helps.
- Your recommendations for connecting with friends and family.
- What information or resources you need from Saint Mary’s.
The CommUNITY Update will help us reduce the number of emails you receive from Saint Mary’s, allowing you to focus on your studies and ensuring you get the important information you need to continue to learn and thrive. We will share all recent COVID-19-related communications at smumn.edu/covid19.
It has never been more important to remember the good happening around us, and we’re fortunate that at Saint Mary’s, there’s no shortage of good news to share.
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” – 2 Timothy 1:7
