Welcome Back for the Spring Semester

Dear Students:

As we begin a new semester here at Monmouth, following a long winter break, let me share a warm Welcome Back on behalf of the entire University community. We have missed you. I hope the past few weeks have afforded you some well-earned rest and relaxation.

Even as the COVID-19 health crisis continues to transform our world, the Monmouth spirit remains as strong and as vibrant as ever. Despite the many challenges presented by this pandemic, I am gratified by the many ways in which you routinely demonstrate resilience and a shared commitment to the common good at Monmouth. This upcoming semester will undoubtedly present new challenges, but I am confident that you will respond to them with continued strength and compassion. And, in so doing, remember to take advantage of the many resources available at Monmouth to enrich and support your student experience. We are committed to providing you with the most supportive environment possible, both to encourage your academic success and to help maintain your overall health, safety, and wellness.

Thank you, in advance, for your continued cooperation with our health and safety protocols, all of which can be summed up in the following: mask up, back up, and wash up. To ensure a successful spring here at Monmouth, it is going to take each of us to protect all of us. My best wishes to you for an exceptional semester.


Dr. Patrick F. Leahy
