Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Dr. Ivy M. Nelson. She was a friend, educator, and leader. We met Dr. Nelson at the Federal City College and benefited from her motherly concern over the decades. Dr. Nelson's impact on faculty, students, staff, alumni, and friends of the University of the District of Columbia and the larger global community is appreciated.
