Beginning the Year, and Dean Role, with Gratitude:
A Letter from Maryland Smith's New Dean, Prabhudev Konana

January 2021

Dear Smith Community,

Prabhudev KonanaI wish you a joyful and purposeful new year. This is my first week as dean of Maryland Smith and it is indeed an honor and a privilege to serve you all.

I imagine that you, like me, are feeling grateful for the return to normalcy that looks possible in 2021. I’m full of gratitude: for the scientists who raced to bring us a vaccine. For the doctors and nurses who toiled without rest to care for the sick. For the faculty who taught in person and online while juggling their personal lives. For staff who worked tirelessly to provide the best support possible for faculty and the best experience possible for students. For students who showed resilience in the face of challenges they never could have imagined. For our loyal alumni who continue to support the school, our students, faculty and staff through this unique time.
