“March 15, 2020

Key Takeaway: Spring break has been extended; campus remains open for support; faculty are looking at alternate delivery methods for students.

While all TCAT -----  campuses are remaining open to serve our students, we are on extended spring break from classes. While this is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation that may change, at this time classes will resume March 23, 2020.

The health of our students, faculty and  staff and your families are our top priority – along with our mission of Student Success and Workforce Development. Although we have not experienced any active Coronavirus cases on any of our campuses and the risk level in our communities remains low, we will continue to take steps that are consistent with local and state health guidance to reduce risks and protect our community. These steps include hospital-grade cleaning of all of our campus areas.

Faculty members are diligently preparing to move some course components online or planning alternate delivery methods. However, as a technical college,  this is not practical for all courses or programs. Additionally, many of our students do not have internet access to continue their studies through online education. Therefore we are also considering other methods of education.

As we look to the coming weeks, it will be time to think of our mission of Student Success and Workforce Development – and we may be called upon to roll up our sleeves and get to work in a new and challenging way to keep our communities moving forward. I have confidence that we can do this and that we will succeed.

 

President Monks
