March 17 Message from President Liz Maw
It has been a whirlwind of a week. For most of us, our lives have been turned around as we socially isolate during the COVID-19 emergency. For some, there is the need to care for children who are home from school, while others face threatened livelihoods.
Presidio Graduate School is here for you. Our goal is to keep providing you with an outstanding academic experience and ensure that we thoroughly equip you for a world that so clearly needs leaders like you. We are prepared to deliver a remote March Residency next week for you to fully participate in, continuing your learning and connections with the community.
We also encourage you to reach out if the isolation, stress, or anything else is catching up with you. Julie Cosenza, our Director of Student Experience, is available for student sessions every day this week and next. Your classmates and teachers can also be a source of support – while Zoom isn’t quite as friendly as a chat in the hall, I encourage you to reach out to connect with no specific agenda.
Here are a few useful articles that might help with stress, isolation, and fear:

Please know that we are here for you during this difficult time.
