Note from the Dean's Office
We've made it past the start of the term and into February, and, in celebration of Black History Month, I commend to you the numerous events sponsored by SABU and the Africana Studies Program. By now, we have usually settled into the normal routine of the term. But as we all know, there is very little that is normal or routine about anything we're doing this year. I want to thank everyone for your remarkable understanding, patience, flexibility, and creativity, especially over the past few weeks with the staggered return of students to campus. Your dedication to our students is one thing that remains steadfast. With that in mind, remember if you have students who may be struggling, either with academics or other non-academic matters, please don't hesitate to reach out to me or the appropriate Student Affairs class dean. And please remember to take time for yourselves during this stressful time. We are planning to bring back two faculty development initiatives in some form – the summer research collaboration grants and the manuscript completion workshops – so be on the lookout for more information on those later this term. In the meantime, let us know if there's anything we can do to support all that you do. For now, my (virtual) door remains open, and I look forward to seeing some of you outside Simpson House as the weather warms.

Marcos Perez, Assistant Professor of Sociology, doing field work in Argentina.
Who says faculty members must spend many years at W&L before making an impact?  Marcos is in his third year, and he has quickly established himself as an excellent teacher and an accomplished researcher of social movements.  Marcos has also been instrumental to building an intellectual community on campus through organizing film series and themed book clubs. Students deeply appreciate his consistent devotion to creating meaningful opportunities beyond the classroom.
