(BLOOMINGTON) – Ivy Tech Community College faculty will now deliver courses virtually (or through alternative delivery) through the conclusion of the semester to students.
Courses will restart on March 23 and conclude May 16.
Students should check IvyLearn leading up to March 23 for instructions on their courses.
Ivy Tech campuses and sites will remain open to provide student and business office assistance including the ability for students to meet with advisors, admissions and financial aid, use computers, and access to faculty as needed. Accommodations will be made for labs, clinicals, and some technology courses to meet in groups of 10 or less if social distancing can be assured. Information regarding such meetings will be provided to students from their faculty.
“Faculty and staff should plan to continue their work on campus as they are able as we will continue to serve our students to the best of our abilities. This will require a new approach to how we manage our workspace to ensure proper social distancing. Look for further guidance from your campus leadership on what changes will be forthcoming to ensure the safety of our faculty, staff, and students,” said Sue Ellspermann, PhD
Ivy Tech Community College President
“We have continuously monitored the coronavirus pandemic and have weighed all options. Our focus is always on the safety and academic success of our students. At this time, given the escalating cases in Indiana and across the country, we believe that offering our courses virtually is now the most viable alternative. Ivy Tech currently offers nearly half of our courses online today. Thank for your patience and understanding as we work through this unexpected situation together.”
The College has not announced any changes regarding commencement ceremonies at this time and is currently gathering data regarding such events.
