Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the College of University Libraries and Learning Sciences Convocation for Spring 2020 has had to be postponed in order to protect the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff as well as friends and families. A special website honoring our graduating students has been created and we hope you will pay it a visit in honor of your colleagues.
The pandemic does not diminish the accomplishments of our graduates who have worked hard for years towards their degrees. Instead, the pandemic accentuates the tenacity and resilience of our students, as many of them have had to navigate through the "new normal."
Many people are wondering what changes will be coming in the days after the pandemic as we know our lives cannot be the same. However, I am confident that because of your knowledge and skills in instructional design, eLearning, organizational development, and with the friendships you have built in OILS, that you are ready for any challenges in the days ahead. Congratulations to all the graduates, your family and friends.
