“Particularly in this very difficult year of COVID-19, I am profoundly grateful for all of your dedication, creativity, and resourcefulness in making Vassar the very best college it can be,” Bradley said. “You create the culture  the glue  that makes people feel like they belong here. Those of you who have served for several years and even decades, we have so much to learn from you and your contributions are immeasurable. I hope you are as proud as I am of the work we do together every day here to make students' lives better, happier, and more meaningful. We could not do it without you.  I send you my very best wishes and much gratitude.”
