Memo on the AUBG Presidential Search and Appointment Process

April 16, 2020

Dear Members of the AUBG Community,

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has changed life as we know it dramatically. The entire AUBG community including faculty, staff, students and alumni, are no exception. We could not be prouder of how the entire team on campus reacted quickly and decisively to respond to the myriad of crises presented by the pandemic during the past months. The challenges of making sure all students, faculty and staff are safe, providing support to students as nearly all of them had to move off-campus, supporting faculty as they began to hold classes on line, and disappointing graduates and their parents who looked forward to graduation celebrations have all involved difficult decisions. The Board of Trustees is tremendously grateful and proud of the efforts of every one of you to adjust to this unprecedented situation with professionalism, creativity and a positive attitude. It shows the true AUBG spirit that makes this institution unique and resilient.
