In Every Issue

Letter from the Dean

GREETINGS,

Whereas the COVID-19 global pandemic has changed so many things for the Bauer College, the University of Houston, our city, our nation, and even the entire world, one thing remains the same amid all the rapid change we have seen over the last year – the Bauer College community is resilient, strong, and, most importantly, connected. 

This issue of Inside Bauer focuses on the theme of connection. The circumstances of the pandemic, no doubt, have highlighted just how intertwined the Bauer College is with our community of students, alumni, and partners, but these challenges have also provided a new opportunity to develop innovative solutions to provide resources and support to navigate this “new normal.” 

At the beginning of the year, we unveiled the 2020-2025 Strategic Plan for the Bauer College, which outlines our college values. We can remember the values very simply by thinking about our college’s name: BAUER – Boldness, Accountability, Unity, Excellence, Resourcefulness.

The last value in that acronym, resourcefulness, has become increasingly important in 2020! You will read in this issue of Inside Bauer many stories of how our faculty, staff, students, and alumni have adapted. You have learned  new technologies  so that planned in-person events could be held interactively, despite being virtually. You have  committed to  taking necessary common-sense precautions for your health and the health of your community. You have  used this  time to learn new skills,  which have no doubt benefitted your personal growth and professional development. And, you have  reached out to your  neighbors,  friends, colleagues, and even strangers to  lend a hand  so that we can come together to persevere through this crisis.

No matter what challenges this year has brought to all of us, I have seen firsthand that our Bauer community will emerge from this situation even stronger, by making everybody around us, stronger.

Sincerely,

Paul A. Pavlou, Ph.D.
