A message from Dean Chuang to Arts and Letters students

I hope this message finds you and your loved ones well in these unprecedented circumstances caused by COVID-19.

As we begin the Spring 2020 quarter, I wanted to share a few thoughts about the many ways we’re supporting each other and the extraordinary, ongoing efforts to prepare the College of Arts and Letters for virtual learning while keeping everyone safe. It’s never been truer that we are all in this together.

Let me assure you that our commitment to delivering outstanding instruction and services remains unwavering. The transition hasn’t been easy and many challenges remain, both known and unknown. Yet while the delivery methods may have changed, our mission has not.

Last week, the university debuted a comprehensive collection of resources to help students manage the many changes enacted for the Spring 2020 quarter. There you’ll find information about Internet access, borrowing a laptop, Zoom training, parking refunds, free software downloads, housing, library services, financial aid, counseling and more.

In addition, the CAL Advising team remains available Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. to respond to email, meet through Zoom, and if necessary, consult with students by phone. Contact them at and visit the CAL Advising home page for more information.

In facing the difficulties imposed on all of us, I know our students will meet them with resilience and grace. Above all, please know that the entire College — myself included — is available to help and support you as we navigate this trying time.

While you will continue to receive regular communication by email, I encourage students to follow the College’s social media accounts at and, where we share time-sensitive news, information, success stories and best practices for adapting to this “new normal.”

Let’s all remember to stay connected and give each other the support we’ll need to get through this together. We may be isolated from each other for the moment but we remain united. #WeAreCAL

Stay safe and remain Coyote strong.
