In mid-March, campus was closed due to the covid-19 pandemic and the majority of employees began to work remotely.  Staying focused from home, staff continued to work on strategic planning for the Institute, collaborated with students, and pushed forward on construction projects. Employees also received heaps of praise and appreciation for being on the front lines during a time of crisis, keeping vital campus operations up and running.
