For the summer 2021 term, a limited number of courses and/or classes within a course will be delivered via live face to face delivery. Details regarding these courses have been communicated with all current students. The remainder of summer courses will be delivered virtually. We anticipate a full return to campus in the fall.
I charged our chairs, program directors and faculty with the critical task of carefully analyzing each course in every program and to make a determination about the best way to deliver these classes under present circumstances. Our accreditors have informed us that flexibility is important and that faculty are in the best position to determine how to assess student competencies.
Please rest assured that any and all decisions we have made about program deliveries are based on the science about COVID-19; student, faculty and staff safety; student and faculty input; general and specialty accreditor guidelines; local state and federal mandates and guidelines; and, the Centers for Disease Control policies and protocols. We continue to watch COVID-19 trends very carefully and diligently as we plan for a full return to live instruction in the fall term.
Please be safe, be smart and stay healthy.
