A note from the co-chairs to the committee members:

The GSRPD committee is always a very dedicated and talented group, but you, the students who have volunteered this year, have been exceptional. We originally thought we may have to cancel the 2020 event due to COVID-19 gathering restrictions. However, when we switched to an online format, you all demonstrated patience, flexibility, and commitment to GSRPD even in spite of the stressors and challenges COVID-19 posed both personally and professionally for everyone. This year, we had to shift everything from the event date to the necessary subcommittees needed to host this event, and the students involved this year have adapted quickly to all of it with grace and professionalism. These students have poured themselves into making GSRPD 2020 a reality despite unprecedented hurdles, and we want to express our gratitude to you with the same enthusiasm you have demonstrated towards this event.

Thank you for making GSRPD 2021 a reality; we truly could not have done this without you.
