Dear Colleagues and Students:

Over the past several weeks the PHSC Administrative Leadership Team and I have been working diligently to ensure a safe teaching and learning environment for our students, faculty and staff. I am quite proud to say that with the unparalleled collaboration between our esteemed faculty, staff, and administration, nearly 1100 classes were transitioned from face to face to the online platform as of Monday, March 30, 2020. A special thank you to each of you who provided your professional expertise to help make this happen.
