New to PoliSci, I had barely started my position in the department when the virus became a pandemic and we were sent home. I had to learn almost everything first the traditional in-office way, then implement it remotely. Jennifer’s patience, understanding, sense of humor and empathy made this chaotic transition manageable not just for me, but for everyone else in the department as well. We have an understanding that while the most important thing we can do is facilitate our students and faculty, we have to accept that we’re learning new methods and we’re not going to be perfect. For her to exude calmness throughout this time has only helped me to be more mindful and attentive. Thank you, Jennifer!
