A message from Dr. Lufkin
Wednesday July 29, 2020
There is no question that the past few months have presented challenges for almost every business, maybe none more so than the business of educating students. Professional educators have, by and large, done a tremendous job adapting to the hand we have all been dealt and worked diligently to achieve the best possible outcomes for their students. I am proud to say that our team here at Camp Community College is no exception.
COVID-19 has certainly changed our business model, and I will outline a few of those changes in a moment. But on this point let me be clear: Camp Community College is, and will remain, open for business.
Our commitment to providing a quality post-secondary education has never been more important than it is today. Due to a couple of primary reasons, parents and students that previously did not consider community college an option in their planning process are now giving us serious consideration. First, there are questions as to whether many four-year institutions will allow students to live on campus in the fall and, for those that do, parents and students are concerned about the safety of doing so. Secondly, economic conditions have made the affordability of a community college education more appealing than ever, especially given the fact that many students planning to take classes at those four-year colleges may be doing so online and at home.
Our top priority has always been the safety and wellbeing of our faculty, staff and students. Since the beginning of this pandemic, our college has practiced an abundance of caution and social distancing in addition to following state and federal safety guidelines. We will continue to do so, and will only return to our previous teaching models once government and health officials deem it safe to do so. It is in that spirit that we will operate under the following conditions for our fall semester:
- Traditional asynchronous online classes will remain online
- Classes that require face-to-face, hands-on experiences like welding
,clinicals, etc. will be offered in a hybrid setting with required social distancing practices observed. In short, our goal is to offer as much as we can in online and hybrid settings, and offer the hands-on courses in a responsible way that prioritizes the health and safety of our community.
- All other classes will be synchronous-hybrid classes with virtual meetings through Zoom technology on regularly scheduled days and times. Limited on-campus meetings may be designated by the instructor.
- Faculty and staff are welcome to return to campus as needed or desired, including for the purpose of teaching in-person. However, it is important that you notify your supervisor prior to coming on campus and have that visit approved by the Office of Public Safety. If you will be teaching in-person, a list of students must be provided in advance. All faculty, staff and students will be required to sign in for each visit, and all must sign a form signifying that all rules for our reopening plan are understood and agreed to. The link to the reopening plan is here.
- All events that would bring groups of students, employees, or community members to campus must be approved by administration and coordinated by the appropriate supervisor with the Office of Public Safety.
It is our sincere hope that things return to normal as soon as possible, not just for the good of the college but for the benefit of our entire community. Until that time, Camp Community College remains poised to serve our students and the community by providing a high-quality college education at an affordable price.
