We are so grateful to have our community of faculty, staff, students and alumni all come together to use our skills to help the communities around us. So many of our AD&D family have stepped up during this time of need to sew masks for people who need them. We will continue to reach out to others in hopes to bring comfort and protection during these uncertain times. Thank you to all our AD&D network for your efforts and outreach to flatten the curve of this pandemic.
