OK CCPA, It’s Time

SMU CCPA Chair, Dr. Sandra Duhé

Greetings, CCPA!

Welcome back from an odd, but I hope enjoyable, summer. Hard to believe it’s been five months since we were last together in person.

It’s time for us to get back to college life. We’ll be glad we did once we get rolling. If you’re hesitant about making the shift back to campus or classes, you’re not alone. Believe me.

If we return expecting things to be “back to normal,” we’re going to be frustrated. Things are going to be (really) different this semester. The best-laid plans still have uncertainties. We won’t know how things will go until, well, we start going.

Our Mindset

Preparing for Fall: Message from the CCPA Chair

Summer greetings, CCPA!

Sandra Duhe, CCPA chair

I hope this note finds you well and enjoying what’s left of our summer break. Campus will be open this fall, but prepare yourselves for a very different environment. Masks, social distancing, and fewer (or highly modified) events are just some of the changes you’ll see.

Happy Easter, Happy Passover, Happy Spring

Holiday and spring greetings to our CCPA family!

The resiliency of our students, staff, and faculty continues to amaze me. We are seeing our way through the era of COVID-19. We are bound by our shared interest in communicating for the greater good. We’re also bound in how we care for each other. That’s one of the many things that makes CCPA special.

This is a season of grace, on many levels. Practice grace with yourselves. Be ok with moving at a slower pace than you normally do. Practice grace with others. Find ways to help, support, and encourage.

We will get through this, and, when we do, communicators will be in high
