Fall 2020 HFA Town Hall

On October 8, 2020, Dean Barbara Krauthamer assembled faculty and staff for a virtual town hall. She acknowledged that the college is navigating unfamiliar territory and that faculty and staff are trying their best in unconventional circumstances to work, meet family obligations, and continue to provide the excellent education and services our students expect from UMass Amherst. But despite the many challenges created by the global pandemic, the HFA community has proven to be dedicated, caring, innovative, resilient, and resourceful.
