Dear GSBS Community,

May is a busy and joyous month at the University and GSBS. Our annual Graduation and Awards Reception will take place on Friday, May 20 at 3:30pm in Jaharis Courtyard. Come celebrate our graduates, honor our award winners, and enjoy a taco bar! Commencement will follow on Sunday, May 22; we look forward to congratulating our graduates and celebrating this important milestone on their journeys. This year will also see a special All-University Commencement on Sunday, May 27 for the 2020 graduates who didn’t have an in-person graduation. These events honor the achievements and resilience of our students, graduates, and alumni.

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. We are celebrating with a Food Tour of Chinatown on May 17. We still have space available for those who want to join us. I also was honored to be interviewed for a Tufts Now article: From Identity to Inspiration: Reflections on Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. The piece spotlights a few of the many journeys that brought us to our graduate programs and careers. Let us celebrate all of our journeys, which enrich our community and deepen our culture. 

Dan Jay, Dean
