Dear Faculty and Staff Colleagues,

Welcome back. Whether you are working on campus or remotely, or a combination of both, I hope you are looking forward to the new term as much as I am.

This is already a historic semester for Oxford as we welcome our first-ever spring start class of 50 students. Many took the fall semester to explore academic and personal interests and are arriving ready to become fully immersed in all aspects of Oxford life. In fact, the vast majority are already on campus even as we implement online learning for the month of January. Please join me in making them feel welcome, and I look forward to seeing how you as faculty and staff will contribute to their successes.

With appreciation,
