The spring semester arrives during an extraordinary time. While I know many of us were happy to say goodbye to 2020 and welcome in a better 2021, we enter into our new year with less-than-optimal conditions. Yet, there are bright spots. Vaccines are beginning to be distributed and UNT has applied to be a vaccination site. Thanks to the COVID-19 relief bill, UNT is projected to receive $48-$50M from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund, which will support our students, cover COVID-related expenses and aid in our recovery.
