FRONTIERE Newsletter

What a semester it has been! We have all experienced profound changes in our lives, and have worked hard to quickly adapt to circumstances that are ever-changing. I am incredibly proud of everyone in the FRIT community who has come together to collaborate in record time on so many pressing issues that required quick and innovative solutions. Over the past two months, staff, graduate students, and instructors have exhibited an impressive amount of adaptability, imagination, and open-mindedness, and I am so grateful. 

We dedicate this issue of FRONTIERE to our 106 Spring graduates who received a B.A., minor degree, or M.A. from our department. We are incredibly proud of you all, and know that you are going to go out there and change the world for the better!
