从椅子灯芯哈克斯顿响应的信covid-19

星期二,2020年3月31日

亲爱的朋友们,

我们所有的人都经历了很多的变化和新的挑战,这些过去几个星期的。而我们等待回归到更为正常的时候,请照顾好你自己的健康,并期待您的朋友和邻居。

Stress sometimes brings out the best in people, and that certainly has been the case with our students, staff, and faculty. I have never been prouder of Berkeley Physics. We began by trying to rescue our Open House – the annual event where newly accepted graduate students visit 伯克利, to talk with our faculty and to decide if they would rather be here than elsewhere. In just a few days, Open House was entirely reorganized as a virtual event, complete with an online poster session. Among our many heroes in pulling this off, a special thanks to Joelle and Sarah and the long hours they invested. Simultaneously we began to take our entire curriculum online – another Herculean effort that succeeded because of the leadership of vice-chair Jonathan Wurtele and a team of faculty who creatively moved even our laboratories into cyberspace. And our students pulled together, adapting to this new mode of learning without complaint, and reaching out to support one another. This included continuing the aptly renamed end-of-week Physics & Astronomy Social (Distancing) Hour, beverage of one’s choice optional.

该部门也在探索如何能支持covid-19的努力。我们的建筑经理Anthony vitan率领PPE搜索我们的研究实验室内,与教师合作,以确定80个箱乳胶手套,100个面罩,以及各种防护罩,护目镜和安全眼镜。将材料交付给大学健康服务。

有研究以创造性的方式正在做的和我们的日子现在充满了变焦合作,伯克利弹性是无处不在的证据。它仍然将是很好的通过这个来获得。当我们这样做,前来参观洽谈 - 即使在距离不到六脚。

最好,
