Dear Friends of SPS,
Congratulations graduates! As we look back on the 2021 School of Professional Studies Convocation and the 163rd Annual University-wide Commencement, I am filled with pride and admiration over the accomplishments of our students, faculty and staff in the face of a worldwide pandemic. Your dedication, innovation and spirit are truly impressive.
We are very excited at the prospect of a return to in-person classes in Chicago and Evanston this fall. Although the worst of the pandemic appears to be behind us, we remain cautious. Previously scheduled summer quarter on-campus courses will be held in remote learning classrooms, except for a small number of lab courses and intensive course sequences. Please visit the University’s COVID-19 web pages for the latest updates and guidelines.
As we look toward brighter days ahead, our goal before, during and after these challenging times has remained the same — delivering the highest quality education in a dynamic, supportive learning environment. That is my promise, our promise, to each of our students.
Thomas F. Gibbons
Dean, School of Professional Studies
