To Our Graduate Students:

As we come to the end of the Fall 2020 term and start looking ahead to 2021, the leadership and staff at the Faculty of Graduate Studies want to wish you a very restful and enjoyable holiday season. As much as possible, please take this opportunity to unplug, unwind, and focus on your well-being. We've all been through an exceptionally challenging year, and at FGS we recognize the determination and resilience that our students have shown. We also recognize that the stresses of the pandemic have meant that some of you are not where you hoped to be in your studies. Some of you have young families, or aging relatives to look after. Some of you may have had to face this serious illness head-on. Please know that we understand the unique challenges that 2020 posed, and remember that we're here to support you as we look forward to the promise of a new year. 

Season's greetings, and best wishes for 2021!

Robin Yates, on behalf of the leadership and staff at FGS
