Executive Letter, April 2020

Brooks photoNow, more than ever, relationships matter.

During the last few weeks, we have witnessed an unprecedented acceleration towards the unknown. Even still, I remain inspired and calmed by the radical spirit of educators and our students. Throughout the last few weeks, I listened excitedly as IRT Scholars reported admissions offers and funding awards. I am enthusiastic as you inch closer to your matriculation decisions.

We encourage you to reach out to us and connect. We are grateful for those of you that are convening on Facebook, Almabase, and reaching out to us via email. With campuses closed for revisits, more IRT students are seeking additional resources as they make their final decisions. Please consider reaching out via Almabase, especially if you would like to advocate for your alma mater.

At this time, we are teaching without the walls of the schoolhouse. Share resources that are keeping you sane, lesson plans if you are seeking feedback, or just a warm email to someone that might be going through a hard time.

We look forward to sharing updates with you via our blog and social media. We send our deepest thoughts to those affected by COVID – 19 (Coronavirus), and we are here to support you.



LaShawnda Brooks
Executive Director, IRT
