Kristin Kirkpatrick: June message

As we transition to warmer months, I’m thinking about our academic partners and the challenging and amazing year you have just pulled off. Congratulations, you did it! As your students celebrate the end of the year, I wanted to use this note to celebrate you, and the amazing innovation, persistence, and grit that you all have brought to this academic year. From changing the way you do…well, almost everything, to ensuring that equity was top of mind in your support of students.

You’ll find a few highlights in this newsletter. Please join us for our open forum as we finalize the hire that will launch our national communications strategy – you’ll find details below.

Finally, as many of our members are planning to return to the office after Labor Day, we have shifted our Together We Grow annual meeting dates to Sept. 21-22. We have a fantastic agenda planned; please save the date.

This newsletter will resume in August – happy summer to you all!

With gratitude,
