Editor's Note

From our homes to yours. As we go to press, we are experiencing COVID-19. In these remarkable times, we considered not publishing the magazine. We decided to go ahead because we want to share KU’s remarkable and continuing work, not just related to the pandemic. Storytelling is at the heart of human existence, and positive stories are needed now.

The cover story shows the strength of Jayhawks and features the Campanile glowing in solidarity during Light It Blue, a regional effort to honor health care professionals and essential workers. We are grateful to be able to share these stories with you and thank everyone who made this possible. Spending time with students, faculty and alumni is so enjoyable. Please note that in-person discussions and photos happened before social distancing became the norm.

We are hopeful about the future and know we will get through this together. Stay safe and take care.
