Given the current racial climate around the country we all should be prepared for the difficult conversations we will have with returning students.  COVID-19 has resulted in a shift in how we approach our jobs and responsibilities and add to that the Black Lives Matter protests that have occurred around the country and around the world.  Student may return confused, upset, angry and simply wanting to be reassured the university is doing something and checking-in on them.  While these conversations may seem simple they are not easy.  Having these conversations makes it much easier to focus on your advising and responsibilities to those we serve and to ensure you are providing feedback to students so they can rise to the level of your expectations.
