Just about every organization talks about the uncertain times we are living in as 2020 brought on COVID-19, racial injustices and awareness. 2020 has challenged every one of us and caused us to test the values we hold dear. We have proven that we are a community that quickly and successfully adapts and pivots to respond to the unforeseen, fulfilling in exceptional ways our missions in education, research, creativity and clinical care. 2020 has brought extraordinary challenges, but we brought extraordinary accomplishments. And we did so together as One VCU.
