How are you responding to COVID-19?
You asked, we answered. You asked "How are you responding to COVID-19?" and we gathered short videos from institutions, students and our IDP counsellors giving their answers and opinions.
Shoreline Community College
We know that covid-19 has impacted many people, study plans right now, and we're doing everything we can here at Shoreline Community College to make sure that students can continue with their academic plans. Luckily, we've had online courses for many years, so we're helping students to start online at our school and then come back to campus when it's safe to do so. We also have many online services like online advising, online counseling, online tutoring to make it easy for students to succeed in an online environment and of course, for the students still living in our residence hall. We've created spaces for them to properly socially distance. So every student has their own bedroom right now. We're actively cleaning every surface that students touch. And we're encouraging good social distance practice to make sure that they're safe.
Full Sail University
As soon as possible, university learned about covid-19, we created a task force on campus to ensure that we're prepared for any scenario with the student and staff safety being the highest priority. We decided to move everything virtually so all of our staff is working remotely and all of our students are currently studying online. Booksellers is following the guidance of CDC as well as local and state government officials, and keeping us up to date, day by day on future plans moving forward.
California State University, San Bernardino
How are responding to covid-19 at CISSP in the international admissions office? We're here to support our international students. We're working with students to be flexible and supportive during this challenging time. We're working together to ensure that our international students can proceed with their studies here at CSB by removing barriers and providing additional opportunities for students to meet admission requirements.
University of Limerick
USA and Ireland have had a very strong response towards covid-19, so we've put a huge amount of support in place for our incoming cohort of students. We've organized airport collections, 14 days of isolation on campus, all funded by the university. And then our teaching has moved to a blended model between online and face to face, as much online as possible to keep things safe. And then obviously we practice social distancing and swearing on campus.
