Fall Quarter Programming

Message from the Executive Director

On behalf of the CADSS professional and student staff, I wanted to take a moment to send you a quick note to say I hope that you and your family are being well, safe, and healthy during these very difficult times. With so much happening at once, it's hard to navigate school and family life especially since you likely have to work from home for a while. Even more difficult is the challenge of thinking about yourself while you may also have to care for others.

As we continue to brave this battle, I hope you stay calm, encouraged, and mindful while the world works itself out. These are definitely tough times but if we remain optimistic we will get through this.

Be encouraged.

Kayton C. Carter
Executive Director | Student Affairs Retention Initiatives
