This is a time of challenges. It is also a time of opportunities. As you will learn in this issue of Connections, the COVID-19 pandemic does not postpone the future. Our feature story, “The Sky is the Limit” features the campaign to construct a Health Sciences Education Building on the UW campus. Scheduled for completion in 2022, this is a truly transformative project for all the health sciences schools. You will also read about the successful conclusion of the UW’s Be Boundless fundraising campaign. The generous alumni, donors and friends of the School of Nursing helped us raise more than $49 million. These gifts are a significant investment in the future of nursing and research. This issue also features our extensive anti-racism and DEI efforts, an important commitment and a complex undertaking helping us change attitudes, reshape culture, break down barriers and build relationships. At the School of Nursing, we are looking forward to the future. It is a future filled with hope and opportunity. Thank you for being an integral part of that future, and for your support of our efforts.
