A message from Dr. Everette Freeman - Stay CityHawk Strong!
The spread of the COVID-19 virus across the globe and here in Colorado is causing understandable concern in our campus community. We haven’t been here before and these circumstances are new. As we continue to make adjustments to the new COVID-19 circumstances, I want to tell you that CCD is hard at work finding ways to support our students, faculty and staff.
Making the Shift to Online
As the remainder of the spring semester gets underway, classes have shifted to an alternate format. For some, this may be an easy transition, but for others, it might prove more difficult. CCD’s Teaching Learning Center has resources to help with this shift at CCD.edu/covid-19-facultystaff-resources.
When the spring semester started, students signed up for in-person classes and I recognize for some of them this is not an easy transition, but we are doing our best to keep our students on track to continue their education and keep them safe. As our students continue their education remotely, there are also services available to help them make the transition. Student learning, counseling, housing, and food resources can be found at CCD.edu/StudentResources.
Some students have shared their disappointment about Commencement moving to a later, unspecified date; we are disappointed too! We are working hard to find a way to still provide our students with the celebration they deserve. Stay tuned for updates at ccd.edu/Commencement.
Many CityHawks may feel anxious about these fast-moving developments. Much has happened and there is more to come. Our goal is to keep you informed on the impacts we are experiencing at CCD. You can find up-to-date information about CCD’s response to COVID-19 and other helpful resources at ccd.edu/Coronavirus.
Special thanks go out to our exceptional CCD employees. You are working tirelessly to manage this crisis on behalf of everyone connected to CCD. Your steadfastness, diligence, flexibility, patience, and understanding have not gone unnoticed or unappreciated. Stay strong and determined!
CCD is a resilient and caring community. We are here for our campus community - and that means YOU. If you need help with anything, please reach out and ask for support. Take care of your community, your families and yourselves!
Together, we will come through this crisis. Together!!
