Letter from our President

Greetings Fisk Family and Friends,

I hope this message finds you well. Our hearts go out to all those impacted by COVID-19 (coronavirus).

Fisk University has moved all instruction online and cancelled all in-person meetings, tours, and other events until further notice. Commencement, Reunion and Alumni Weekend events have also been cancelled. 

Please visit https://www.fisk.edu/articles/fisk-response-to-covid-19 to view a message from President Kevin Rome and all other official updates regarding the University’s response to this global pandemic.

I encourage you to consider donating to the University's emergency student response fund to support students who need emergency assistance (transportation, housing, etc.) due to the closure of all dormitories. Please visit https://connect.fisk.edu/studentemergencysupportfund to make your tax-deductible donation. All gifts will count toward your class gift.

All Chicago Area Fisk University Alumni Association in-person activities (including Fisk Fridays, student recruitment fairs, etc.) will be cancelled until further notice. Our March 22, 2020 General Membership meeting will be cancelled. Please contact me directly at cafuaapresident@gmail.com if you would like to receive a copy of the February 2020 general membership meeting minutes and financial report.

We will continue to act in accordance with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, city and state officials and will keep you abreast with any updates. I pray that you remain healthy and safe.

Your Daughter Ever on the Altar,
Ms. Monique (Mo) Ramsey, Class of 2004
CAFUAA President 2020-2022
