FACULTY & STAFF
When you are supporting students, the key is being flexible! You will also find a few resources at the bottom of this page to help you as a faculty/staff member during this time.
- Be flexible! This is a difficult time for both faculty/staff and students. Recording your lecture that you are presenting so students who have added responsibilities (i.e. taking care of a loved one) can still attend class and learn if you are holding your class at its normal time.
- Being flexible with assignments. Not everyone has access to the internet or they are having difficulties with their internet. Because of this, more students may have difficulties submitting work on time.
- Be transparent about when assignments are due. With our lives moving to an online platform and all of us needing some structure and control, providing ample time for students to submit assignments.
- Be cognizant of the amount of work you are giving students. Everyone is trying to adapt quickly to a new way of receiving their education and learning.
- Reaching out to students to show and offer support.
As always, please continue to consult with Counseling Center staff and referring students to the Counseling Center. Here are some additional resources for you to use:
