After much consideration, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone the 2021 Dean’s Luncheon until spring 2022.
We anticipate that the event, originally scheduled for September 9 in the Great Hall of Memorial Union, will now be held on April 7, 2022 (tentatively). We hope to gather, as in years past, to update you on the great things happening at the school.
Your support and friendship are important to us and we have missed seeing you. Although we’re disappointed that we won’t get meet for an in-person Dean’s Luncheon this year, we hope you’ll enjoy this video message from Dean Mark D. Markel sharing highlights of the past year and all that we’ve been able to achieve thanks to your continued support.
Below, we’ve also shared a timelapse video of the progress already occurring on the school’s building expansion – made possible by friends like you.
Save the Date: April 7, 2022
