Additions to Student Support Services
Students' mental health and physical well-being are essential to their academic success as well as their personal, social, and emotional growth. To ensure access to and ongoing continuity of care in the current unprecedented circumstances, Counseling Services will deliver all services via teletherapy during the Fall 2020 semester.
To comply with social distancing protocols, all appointments with staff members in the Office of Accommodations and Accessibility (OAA) will occur online through a platform called Webex, which students and staff members will have access to. OAA staff will work closely with students and faculty to ensure appropriate accommodations are in place for the blended, flexible model of learning and will continue to serve students on an individual basis by appointment.
Staff members have been conducting meetings like this since March 2020 and feel completely confident in this format. Additionally, various academic and social programs will be offered to students online via the Webex platform, during the Fall 2020 semester. Testing accommodations will be available online and in-person for the Fall 2020 semester.
Additional Health Services options
The Office of Health Services will expand the use of telemedicine and operate with modified protocols for in-person appointments, where necessary.
