The outbreak of COVID-19 and its rapid spread have left us all feeling a bit uncertain. As our local communities are each handling the crisis, one thing is true for all of us: we are experiencing great change, and we are coming together to meet this challenge. In the midst of these challenges, though, I have found  myself both heartened and humbled by the many stories of Tigers, locally and around the world, doing what they can to help. From alumni health care workers and MU scientists on the front lines fighting this virus, to those simply reaching out a hand to their neighbor, the Mizzou spirit has manifested in ways that make me so incredibly proud of our community.

What can you do? Check here for ways to give to emergency relief, to connect with Mizzou and make a difference with your time. Thank you, Tigers, and stay safe.
