Welcome back to campus

Welcome back! We’re excited to see our students, faculty and staff in-person, as well as virtually, as we begin the 2020-2021 academic year.

We appreciate everyone wearing their masks and observing social distancing. As Curtiss says, “Cover your beak and watch your wingspan!”

And don’t forget to drop in on our Warhawk Welcome Week events.

Remember to use AUM Healthcheck

Make AUM Healthcheck a part of your morning ritual. It’s a quick, easy-to-use tool that will help you monitor personal health during the COVID-19 pandemic.

You can also care for yourself and fellow Warhawks by:

  • Covering your beak. Face masks are required in classrooms, public indoor spaces and outdoor campus spaces when social distancing is not possible.
  • Watching your wingspan. Remember to socially distance (6-foot buffer zones between yourself and others).
  • Washing your hands. Warm water and soap for 20 seconds, and keep that hand sanitizer handy.

We have posted flyers around campus to also remind you of these safety measures. For more information, check out our Back to Campus guide and other resources.

Let’s have a great semester, everyone.

New changes to Office of Advancement

AUM wants to better serve its growing alumni family.

Under a new organizational structure, AUM’s Office of Advancement will encompass all of the university’s development and alumni-related initiatives. The restructuring also involved promoting staff members Eve Rhea and Valerie Rankin as the university refocuses its fundraising and alumni outreach efforts.

Rhea, who joined AUM in May 2019 as Executive Director of Development, will now serve as Associate Vice Chancellor for University Advancement. Rankin will now serve as Director of Alumni Affairs after serving as Coordinator of Alumni Affairs.

Learn more about Rhea’s and Rankin’s new roles.
