 MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

在线高清中文字幕电影 中文字幕久荜在线 中文字幕乱码 电影在线观看 中文字幕免费无线观看Students, Faculty, and Staff,

I am writing to inform you of our university’s efforts to minimize the impact of the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) global pandemic on our community while at the same time fulfilling our academic mission on behalf of our students.

在线高清中文字幕电影 中文字幕久荜在线 中文字幕乱码 电影在线观看 中文字幕免费无线观看 At this time, the Will County Health Department has not notified Lewis University of any confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our students, faculty or staff. Since January, our Campus Emergency Preparedness Team (CEPT) has been collaborating with the Will County Health Department (WCHD) and Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) to assess the impact of COVID-19 on our university and to protect the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff.

Consistent with the guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), IDPH and WCHD, and the recommendations from the Lewis University CEPT and leadership team, several changes will go into effect immediately. These decisions will be disruptive and therefore may be upsetting to some; however, they have been made with great care and consideration for the health and safety of our community.

Instruction and Classes
The best way for our university to protect our community is to temporarily transition from regular classroom meetings in Romeoville, Oak Brook, Tinley Park and Albuquerque to online instruction.

  • All courses originally scheduled to be online will proceed as planned on March 16.
  • All courses originally scheduled to be face-to-face will be delayed by one week, resuming in a fully online format on Monday, March 23.
  • The delay of one week for all face-to-face courses will provide opportunities for faculty training and course redevelopment.
  • Learning outcomes for all courses will remain the same.
  • Even though students will not be attending classes on campus, faculty and staff will continue to be present and daily university operations will continue.
  • Registration for Summer and Fall terms will continue as planned.
  • We will provide an update by Monday, April 6 on the status of resuming face-to-face classes.

在线高清中文字幕电影 中文字幕久荜在线 中文字幕乱码 电影在线观看 中文字幕免费无线观看A set of resources to assist faculty in delivering their courses online has been prepared. Faculty will receive a separate message from Dr. Christopher Sindt, Provost, with additional details.

Campus Status
All campuses will remain open. Administrative offices will remain operational. Academic Support Services, such as library, CASE, and computer labs, will remain open. Dining services will remain open with adjusted hours and locations. Staff will continue reporting to work as usual; please contact your supervisor with any questions or concerns.

Following social distancing recommendations, non-essential interactions between staff and students should be avoided. Students who are employed by Lewis University need to discuss their work schedules with their supervisor.

For the remainder of the semester, our Health Services will have nurse and doctor visits available by appointment only. Walk-In service will not be available for visits or immunization record submission. Visit the Health Services website for scheduling instructions.

Romeoville Campus Resident Students
Resident students have the option to remain in their permanent home or live on campus. Regardless of where you live, you will be required to complete your coursework online. Services such as dining, library and recreation will be available to our students with modified hours. The Office of Residence Life will communicate detailed information for resident students.

Study Abroad Programs
在线高清中文字幕电影 中文字幕久荜在线 中文字幕乱码 电影在线观看 中文字幕免费无线观看 Following CDC, State Department, and World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines and advisories, we have facilitated the return home of our students and faculty in our study abroad programs. We are suspending all Study Abroad programs for the rest of the semester. Christopher Swanson, director of study abroad programs, will be in communication with affected students.

Travel
在线高清中文字幕电影 中文字幕久荜在线 中文字幕乱码 电影在线观看 中文字幕免费无线观看 For the time being, we are suspending all non-essential student, faculty, and staff domestic university-sponsored travel and canceling all international travel. Any planned faculty or staff travel should be discussed with your dean or vice president.

We ask that you follow the on personal travel.

Athletics
在线高清中文字幕电影 中文字幕久荜在线 中文字幕乱码 电影在线观看 中文字幕免费无线观看 We are modifying our National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II athletic events, following the guidance of the Great Lakes Valley Conference (GLVC), MIVA and the NCAA. Updates on changes to athletic events will be posted at .

Events
All scheduled university-sponsored events will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. On-campus event changes will be posted at xingongchina.com/COVID-19在线高清中文字幕电影 中文字幕久荜在线 中文字幕乱码 电影在线观看 中文字幕免费无线观看 as we make adjustments.

Commencement
At this time, we anticipate that the May 2020 Commencement ceremonies will continue as scheduled. Any changes or modifications will be communicated.

While some anxiety about the uncertainty of this developing situation can be expected, please know that we are monitoring it very carefully. We will continue to be thoughtful and collaborative in our institutional response, keeping the well-being of students, faculty and staff at the center of all decisions. Visit xingongchina.com/covid-19 for updates on our university’s response efforts for this rapidly evolving situation.

在线高清中文字幕电影 中文字幕久荜在线 中文字幕乱码 电影在线观看 中文字幕免费无线观看This evolving global pandemic has impacted individuals from diverse cultures and faiths, and at all levels of education and economic circumstance. Guided by our Catholic and Lasallian heritage, Lewis University is firmly committed to fostering an atmosphere that is permeated by its Mission-based values of fidelity, wisdom, knowledge, justice and association.

In closing, please remember to treat all members of our community, no matter their age, race, gender, with civility and respect. Infectious diseases are neither confined to nor the responsibility of any one group. We recognize how difficult these changes will be for many members of our community and thank you in advance for your adaptability and resilience. In stressful times like these, we find our strengths in our common commitment to our mission and to each other.

 TEACHING & LEARNING

FOR FACULTY [ + ]

Dear Faculty,

在线高清中文字幕电影 中文字幕久荜在线 中文字幕乱码 电影在线观看 中文字幕免费无线观看As the presence of COVID-19 in our region continues to grow, we have decided that it is necessary to take proactive measures to promote the health and well-being of our students and community.   Social distancing is recommended by the Centers for Disease Control in order to control the spread of COVID-19, and the best way for Lewis to protect our students is to transition from regular classroom meetings to online instruction. In order to facilitate a rapid yet effective transition, we have decided that:

  • All courses originally scheduled to be online will proceed as planned on March 16.
  • All courses originally scheduled to be face-to-face will be delayed by one week, resuming in a fully online format on Monday, March 23.
  • The delay of one week for all face-to-face courses will provide opportunities for faculty training and course redevelopment.
  • Learning outcomes for all courses will remain the same.
  • Even though students will not be attending classes on campus, faculty and staff will continue to be present and daily university operations will continue.
    Registration for Summer and Fall terms will continue as planned. I will send out further guidance on how to conduct advising remotely.
  • An update will be provided by Monday, April 6 on the status of resuming face-to-face classes.

在线高清中文字幕电影 中文字幕久荜在线 中文字幕乱码 电影在线观看 中文字幕免费无线观看I realize that this will be challenging.  Given our commitment to quality instruction as well as the central role that relationship building between students and faculty plays in learning, Lewis is committed to providing you with tools and training that enable you to create engaging and interactive learning experiences for your students. 

在线高清中文字幕电影 中文字幕久荜在线 中文字幕乱码 电影在线观看 中文字幕免费无线观看To help you prepare for this transition, the Faculty Center will provide extensive support to faculty in the following ways:

  • Webinar Series:  webinars on a variety of topics, appropriate for those new to online teaching as well as those with experience will be offered between March 16 and 20.  Topics will be repeated in order to accommodate faculty schedules.  The webinar schedule will be distributed by Friday, March 13.

  • Blackboard Shell:  an instructional blackboard shell named “Keep Teaching” has been created for all faculty and will be available by Friday, March 13.  It is a repository of resources and advice for teaching online.  Look for the link to the shell under “courses” on your Blackboard homepage.

  • Keep Teaching Website:  a website with resources to support online teaching has been created. 

  • Individualized Consultation:  if you have attended a workshop, reviewed the posted resources, and need individualized support, to submit a question using the service desk.  A member of the Faculty Center staff will contact you as soon as possible to provide individual support. 

The transition to online learning is also an opportunity to support one another. If you are an experienced online instructor and are interested in working with faculty new to the online environment, contact Anne Rapp at rappan@lewisu.edu to offer your support.

Because this is an emergent situation, we are still exploring solutions for learning that require presence on campus, in communities, at schools, at private businesses, or healthcare institutions.  Deans are currently working with faculty to identify approaches that meet students’ learning needs.  These approaches will vary by discipline and college.  If you have questions about alternative approaches to experiential learning, contact your dean directly.

在线高清中文字幕电影 中文字幕久荜在线 中文字幕乱码 电影在线观看 中文字幕免费无线观看We realize that this will be challenging and that there are still unanswered questions.  The learning experience will be different in the online environment, but it can still be engaging, interactive, and enriching.

Thank you for your commitment to our students.
