Dear IHP Faculty and Staff,
As we enter the first week of our new normal in a completely online educational environment, I want to thank you for all you have done in preparation for our students' “return,” and for what I know you will be doing over the next several weeks. These are unprecedented times, and you have acted in unprecedented ways to rise to the challenge and completely transform the way we educate our students. This is such a testament to your commitment to your professions, the IHP, and the students you educate.
I know this transition has not been easy for most and has been quite difficult for some. I also know that this challenge comes at a time when everyone was working hard and when people were already feeling stretched. We have put many resources in place to help you make this transition. Please use the expertise of the instructional designers, instructional technologists, librarians, and information technology experts to help you if you need advice on an issue. We are working to provide you with the necessary support to reduce any stress you may be feeling.
Most of all, take time for yourself. In so many communities, the concept of social distancing would not feel as impactful as it does for our IHP community. We enjoy spending work time, as well as social time, together. We enjoy our wine and cheese celebrations. We look forward to that opportunity to run into a colleague and bounce an idea or two off them. More than ever, this is the time to take care of ourselves and find ways to engage with each other virtually. Use ZOOM to gather a small group of your colleagues to just chat. Or plan to have lunch “together.” There are ways we can distance ourselves socially without feeling isolated. And don’t forget to get out for a walk or a bike ride with your kids or loved ones. It is important that each of us keep physically and emotionally healthy so that we can emerge from this pandemic strong.
Remember, if you have any questions, please contact your program director, school dean, or manager. The Partners Employee/Student Assistance Program is another resource for you. Visit the EAP/SAP website for common reactions and self-care tips. You can also reach EAP/SAP at (866) 724-4327.
Stay well, and I look forward to coming together as a community soon.
