A message from Dean Fernhall re. Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
Tuesday, March 10, 2020
As outlined by Chancellor Amiridis in his March 9 communication, we will need the cooperation of every member of the UIC community to protect the health and safety of everyone. This may involve cancelling in-person classes. Currently there are no plans to close the campus or cancel in-person classes, but it is necessary to plan how we would operate if these steps are taken. The goal is to allow students to receive credit and graduate on time.
As such, please become familiar with the following resources:
- ACCC Academic Continuity
- ACCC Tech Resources for Teaching & Learning Online
- ACCC Tech Resources for Working Remotely
Campus leadership is working to develop a coordinated plan of response and will be providing updates, sharing resources, etc. as they become available. More information and resources will be available to the college in the coming days including a dedicated webpage on the AHS website.
In the meantime, here are some steps you can take to remain informed:
- Read official email announcements regarding COVID-19 from campus leadership
- Visit the UIC Today COVID-19 resource page: today.uic.edu/coronavirus
Thank you in advance for your cooperation and partnership.
