From the President's Desk

To: The Rensselaer Community
Re: Holiday Message

As we come to the end of the year, I want to reiterate my gratitude to you for the success that we have had in managing through a difficult time during the current global pandemic.

I thank every member of the Rensselaer community for their care and cooperation since our reopening, which enabled us to continue to provide a safe and high-quality living and learning experience for our students. 

I also offer my deepest thanks to our faculty and staff for their adaptability, ingenuity, tenacity, patience, and willingness to find a path through uncertainty this year — as together, we do the most important work in the world: that of educating talented young people, while generating new knowledge and innovating technological solutions to meet the challenges of our time. 

As we go through the holiday season, I wish you safety, good health, and peace. With the confidence of our proven resilience, we move forward with renewed commitment to our mission and renewed hope as a community and nation.
