I trust that IMMpress Magazine’s first issue of Volume 8 reaches you in good health and doing well, as we social distance and shelter in place. IMMpress starts its eighth year by highlighting the existential threat and dread that climate change can cause our graduate students. This issue provides a powerful and insightful set of articles on how climate change is affecting our thinking and how we can act to mitigate what would otherwise appear to be a dreadful outcome. Notwithstanding the COVID-19 pandemic worries, I am heartened by our graduate students’ ability to shine a light on issues that go beyond our current concerns and speak to the long-term issues affecting our society.

I would like to congratulate the terrific IMMpress editorial and production team and contributors for putting together another vivid and engaging issue. As we start a new decade, it is comforting to know that the next generation has the advantages that enables them to be ready to take on the environmental challenges that lie ahead.

I hope you enjoy this issue, and importantly whether you are an alumnus of the department, or a prospective student, I really look forward to hearing from you.
