Dear MASP Family and Friends,
At the foundation of our program is the belief that community is a strategy for surviving challenging environments. In the midst of the stress and uncertainty brought on by COVID-19, we have remained resolute in this belief and have worked to reenvision what community looks like amidst a global pandemic.
Through the transition to remote learning, teaching, and working, the MASP students, faculty and staff demonstrated extraordinary resilience in finishing out the semester. We came together virtually to share community resources, strategies, and support. We distributed over $6k in emergency scholarship funds to MASP students in need. We graduated 29 students. We held a remote version of our summer bridge program, welcoming over 40 new students to CU.
While much of this Fall semester remains uncertain, we know that MASP will continue to support our students through community. Please read on to learn about what we’ve been up to. Meet our newest team member Dr. CheyOnna Sewell, the new Assistant Director of Social Science Education.
