As finals wind down and summer begins, the Academy would like to share some images from the May Day Culture of Care event on May 1, 2018 to remind faculty that gestures of kindness are important to care for students, colleagues, and ourselves.

We hope Finals Week is going well and that the 50th Commencement Ceremony on Saturday is a wonderful event (and hopefully more comfortable than last year!) to celebrate the successes of all of our graduates this year.

We wish everyone a refreshing, restful, and safe summer. The Academy is open during normal business hours all summer, so don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
