Abstract: 2020 has indeed presented its challenges to all of us in the Communication Center community, as it has for most, if not, all. In fact, 2020 has itself become a cliché, a trope, a mantra, a scapegoat. For what did 2020 bring us within the United States? A global pandemic, police brutality and murders as symptoms of structural racism, Presidential elections, Zoom, virtual learning, facemasks, fake news, continued budgetary and resource crises within higher education, isolation, alienation, and so many seemingly unnecessary deaths. At the time of this writing, it is predicted that the United States will approach nearly half a million deaths due to COVID-19 by February 2021. And that number is more than that – that number is people, our friends, our relatives, our loved ones, our neighbors, and our strangers.
