We begin this week’s update with the Caring Well. Staying Well. COVID-19 Operating Plan, now available for your review:
This comprehensive guide outlines our strategies and protocols for living, learning, and working in community during this academic year. Guided by Philippians 2:3-4, our planning is focused on balancing two priorities:
- Providing a vibrant residential experience for our students
- Maintaining a healthy work and study environment for our entire campus community
We will remain flexible and responsive, ready to adapt our plans as needed.
Getting Started Information – New students, your STING leadership team wants you to know about the following ways to connect as you get ready to come to campus in August:
- Download the “Events at Cedarville University” app. Once in the app, click on “Find Guides” and type “Cedarville University – 2020 Getting Started” and download it.
- Follow @sgaville on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to keep up with campus life and to learn more about Getting Started.
- Download the “Rinnova 2 Go” app. It’s great for when the need for caffeine comes over you, and it lets you skip the lines!
- Check your email at least once a week between now and Getting Started.
Requesting Accommodations for Medical Conditions – Students with underlying medical conditions should consult with their personal physician for guidance on returning to campus.
- Students Unable to Come to Campus – Students who are not able to safely come to campus should request access to remote learning for the fall semester by sending an email from their Cedarville University email account to email@example.com requesting that they be permitted to take their courses remotely. In the email request, include Cedarville ID number, major, name of advisor, and planned graduation month and year. The Registrar’s Office will coordinate the details of notifying the advisor, professors, and will confirm the arrangements with the student. They will also notify Residence Life that campus housing will not be required. The student should alert the Registrar’s Office if there are any changes in the remote learning plan.
- Students Able to Come to Campus – Students who are able to return to campus but may require nonacademic accommodations should contact Nancy Ranger, administrative assistant to the Vice President for Student Life and Christian Ministries, at 937-766-7871 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Healthy Conversations – In our most recent Caring Well. Staying Well. video, Derrick Green, Chair of the Department of Communication, shares how we can have productive, win-win conversations in the midst of complicated COVID-19 circumstances.
