SSW Community Connect: A Virtual Way for the SSW Community to Stay Connected

Summer 2020

The SSW Community Connect initiative was established to create a sense of belonging for our students while we must maintain a safe and physical distance due to COVID-19. Throughout the summer and during semesters, we will create a virtual meeting space that brings us together for social events and programs. The aim is that these events will be spirited, thought-provoking and an innovative way of keeping our community engaged. Participation is voluntary. We expect they will be interactive, informal and fun!
