March 17th Update
Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,
As you know, President Ojakian has just announced that we will be running a virtual campus for the rest of the semester. This decision was made in response to the rapidly evolving pace of COVID-19. At this time, I am sure that everyone has many questions about next steps. Please be assured that we are putting plans in place and will be informing you of what to expect in the next few days.
For now, all faculty and staff who will be working remotely should retrieve anything they need from their offices by Friday, March 20. After that time, we will begin the deep cleaning of campus and will not be able to allow access to buildings.
For all residential students, please watch for information about retrieving your belongings from the Residence Halls. We are organizing a schedule to do so that prevents crowds (as per all health advisories in place).
For students in VPA and Student Athletes, who may have left things in lockers, we are setting a schedule for pickup there as well. Please wait so we can coordinate with the Residence Hall schedules.
For all students, don’t forget to log into Blackboard when our virtual classes begin on March 23.
For everyone, watch for updates in email and check the FAQs frequently for guidance.
Thank you for your patience while we get the next steps fully coordinated.
Missy Alexander, Ph.D., Provost & Vice President for Academic Affairs
