2020 Vision: Cultivating Connections…

...in chaos

...in advising

...in hindsight

...for best practices

As we are currently in the year 2020, we have borrowed the visual acuity term of 20/20 vision to highlight the clarity at which we see the importance of connection and collaboration, not only through times of crises, but at any given point in time. The COVID-19 global pandemic has had a devastating impact on so many lives in a number of different ways. It is clear now that the strength in which we come together and support each other through difficult times is how we should always be working together and collaborating, for best practices, in advising, in chaos, and in hindsight. Now is a good time to reflect on the past and create a clear vision for the future. In order to respect the health and safety of our UMD community, we will be honoring social distancing by hosting this year’s conference entirely online.
