When the coronavirus swept across the city, and the world, everyone had to adapt quickly. While students, faculty and staff at St. Mary’s University have endured many new challenges, many have stepped up to safeguard and strengthen what St. Mary’s prides itself most on: community.

Together, faculty and staff across the University have transitioned to online learning, adopting new methods to deliver a transformational education to our students. We spoke with them to see what they’ve learned and how they plan to take those lessons into the future.
