During a truly unprecedented year, I witnessed many great things, despite the challenging circumstances. This year has renewed our sense of purpose and strengthened us not only as individuals but as a community. And though the past year has looked and felt different in so many unexpected ways, DeGroote's core community values – collaboration, innovation, and generosity – remained the same.

The Student Experience team, pivoting seamlessly, were retooling in a virtual environment and playing outside of their comfort zones to help facilitate innovation and support our key stakeholders – our students. From finding creative ways to support and engage our students remotely to creating and cultivating meaningful experiences and opportunities outside of the classroom, the team worked together to meet each challenge with true tenacity and grit.

Our students demonstrated just how bold and courageous they could be, turning hardships into exceptional leadership opportunities. Students came together to help build, connect, and strengthen the DeGroote community by launching new clubs, innovative events, and initiatives. Our leaders assessed how things were done previously and identified opportunities to reform and change for the better.

As we look towards a brighter 2021 and beyond, there is still much up in the air. There are two things I know for sure. First, this year's hard-earned tools and lessons will enable our team to continue to be more agile and better support our students. Second, our students will be even more prepared to lead and transform business and society.
