Dear Spelman community,

Over the past few months, members of the Office of Alumnae Engagement have worked to coordinate plans for homecoming with leaders from Morehouse College.

As we developed plans, the coronavirus pandemic resurged across the country. In the state of Georgia alone we have seen record-breaking numbers of infections caused by the delta variant, and an increase in hospitalizations across the state.

Our joint priority is protecting the health of our students, faculty and staff. In accordance with guidance to limit the number of large events from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Georgia Department of Public Health, all planned in-person homecoming events for alumnae have been canceled.

Spelman will hold all alumnae events for homecoming virtually beginning  Thursday, Oct. 14 through Sunday, Oct. 17, 2021, under the theme, "Stronger Together: A Forever Sisterhood."

A determination is still being made regarding student events. We are committed to maintaining a safe campus environment for our students, therefore we are considering how to help students celebrate homecoming with Morehouse and other Atlanta University Center Consortium institutions. More information will be forthcoming as decisions are made.

Homecoming is a time within the academic year when we pause to gather, reminisce and celebrate the legacy of Spelman and Morehouse. Like last year, organizers are committed to ensuring that the magic of homecoming remains.

Thank you for your continued support.
