Dear Friends,

 

Since sending our last newsletter in February, the world has changed. The impact of Covid-19 on our personal and professional lives can´t be understated, and many aspects of the future remain unclear for us all. Here in Canada, we continue to practice social distancing, with most of us at the University of Victoria working from home. Learning to “work together as we live apart” has been a challenge but this situation has also shone a bright light onto what matters most to us as an educational community.

 

Over the last month, we have been reflecting deeply on our global partnerships—our vast network of friends around the world are living through their own unique challenges as this pandemic unfolds. You have been in our thoughts since the beginning and more than ever, we appreciate your continued friendship and support.

 

While nothing seems “normal” right now, we are pleased to resume sending our monthly newsletters as another means of keeping in touch, sharing our stories and looking ahead to a brighter future together.
