Opinion: What ‘back to campus’ messaging is missing

Marcelle Christian Hayashida, UCI associate vice chancellor of wellness, health and counseling services writes, “My hope is that we start the new academic year with an acknowledgment that we need more than just emails about cleaning practices, campus policies and where to get tested. … It is to acknowledge our shared humanity, the presence of negative feelings right alongside the positive ones and how hope can buoy us as we engage science, empathy, compassion and wisdom.”
