The New Law of The Jungle (with apologies to Rudyard Kipling)

Social distance is "The New Law of the Jungle." Pack members from across the University read this adaptation of the classic.

Todd Renwick – Chief, University Police Services: Social distance is the Law of the Jungle – as true as Nevada’s blue sky; and the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the Wolf that shall break it could die.

Shannon Ellis – Vice President, Student Services: As our world has turned upside down now, our Wolf family has your back – For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.

Shadi Martin – Dean, School of Social Work: All classes are taken online now, all meetings and lectures through Zoom; All students and professors are working from home now to give each other more room.

Trudy Larson, MD – Dean, School of Community Health Sciences: So wash daily from nose-tip to tail-tip; drink deeply and remember to eat; And remember the day is for studying, and forget not the night is for sleep.

Donald Easton-Brooks – Dean, College of Education: The jackal may follow the tiger, but, cub, when thy whiskers are grown, Remember the wolf is a hunter – so hunt down those grades on your own.

Jim Fitzsimmons – Director, Fitness and Recreational Sports: Keep peace with your family and housemates — whether tiger, or panther, or bear. And be sure to stay mindful and exercise, and venture out solo for fresh air.

Doug Knuth – Director, Director of Intercollegiate Athletics: When you see a fellow wolf in the open, be alert and step from the trail, Give way till the other wolf passes you — let distance and good sense prevail.

Debra Moddelmog – Dean, College of Liberal Arts: Wash your hands when coming and going, keep your paws away from your face, For the Law calls for discipline and fortitude to help every wolf win in this race.

Cheryl Hug English, MD – Medical Director, Student Health Center: Above all treat others with kindness, toward all wolves from nearby or far; And be kind to yourself and take care of yourself for the sake of all that you are.

Kevin Carman – Executive Vice President & Provost: We are all in this thing together – it’s nothing that any of us planned, So let’s act on the power of our knowledge so every wolf can make a strong stand.

Marc A. Johnson – President: Now these are the Laws of the Jungle, and many and mighty are they: What protects our Pack and strengthens our Pack are the actions that you take today.
