Message From the President
Welcome Back KyCAD community!
I hope you have all had a wonderful summer and are ready for what promises to be an exciting year for KyCAD.
As we move into our academic year 21/22 we are yet again faced with growing Covid 19 numbers and the uncertainty that this brings. We will be following Federal and State guidelines as the Fall Semester unfolds and we will be doing everything we can to keep everyone safe.
We are determined to maintain in person teaching as best we can and in order to do this we would urge everyone to take all precautions. Our community pledge allows us all to put the care of our peers and colleagues above all else. Please read and engage with it in the caring spirit with which it is intended.
Our instructions as to what you need to bring to Convocation and the new Semester are outlined below. We offer free testing to everyone as needed. We would invite you to produce a full vaccine card at the beginning of the Semester which will allow you to get on with your work and not need any further testing this Semester (unless showing symptoms). If you cannot do this we will require ongoing negative results from regular testing. Further information below.
This year we will both welcome a new cohort of talented students and we will graduate our very first group. This is an enormous milestone and we are very excited to watch the year unfold and to celebrate with our seniors.
As always we have new faculty and staff and board members for you to welcome and interesting classes and experiences ahead.
I look forward to catching up over tea or coffee (Joyce and I will bring it to 849!). Make the mansion your second home and drop by and say hello!
Warmest wishes to everyone.
President, Moira Scott Payne
