Lint Center Letter to Community: Coronavirus Pandemic
We are facing a truly consequential and transformative situation. The coronavirus pandemic is impacting all of our families, our businesses, our communities, and our very way of life. As such, we wanted to reach out and update you on how we’re approaching this evolving reality and what the Lint Center is doing to bridge the gap back to some form of normalcy.
First and foremost, our hearts and prayers go out to anyone who’s been impacted by the virus, especially with those who are sick, to whom we extend our heartfelt wishes for a full, speedy recovery. And we have found strength and inspiration in the selfless healthcare workers around the world who are on the front lines working tirelessly to care for people in need.
Second, at the Lint Center, we’re focused on the health and safety of our team members first. As an all-volunteer force, we have operated as a virtual, telework enabled operation since 2007. This has helped us continue to do the vital work of the Center without seeing our day-to-day operations significantly impacted. We will continue to leverage this core competency as others learn to adapt.
Third, our organization was founded on core values — empower, enhance, and enable the next generation of America’s National Security professionals — and our values are unwavering and continue to guide everything we do.
We have an amazing team that is geographically dispersed globally who remain committed to our vision and remain dedicated to the Lint Center’s mission.
Moments and times like these remind us that we’re all connected and need one another like never before. On behalf of all of us at the Lint Center for National Security Studies, we’re committed to continuing our work to identify and support emerging leaders through mentoring and scholarship opportunities because the need has never been greater.
As we go forward, the Lint Center will continue to execute and serve the needs of our community in hopes of affording opportunities to those positioned to lead America into a prosperous, safe, and healthy future.
Stay healthy and safe.
