Dear I-House Alumni and Friends,
In this issue of the I-House Connection, I’d like to offer some reflections on my first year, provide an update on our reopening, and share with you some thoughts on the year to come. Everyone at I-House has been working hard to prepare for the return of our residents, and it is an incredible feeling to have welcomed some of our first early arrivals this week! In this issue, Cedric Martin, Director of Hospitality Services, and Shanea Gideon, Resident Support Services Manager, share some of the ways we are working to provide a safe and rewarding experience. As Regina Parker, Human Resources Manager, highlights below, we are still looking for a few more extraordinary people to join the I-House team and welcome referrals from the I-House community. And speaking of community, we are delighted that we have exceeded our initial goal of 1,000 registrants as new residents and more and more of our alumni and friends have joined our ihberkeleyconnect.org platform. Thanks to all of you for your support and best wishes for our reopening this Fall!
