The Transylvania community has pulled together to prepare for remote learning beginning today and lasting through the end of the academic year.
“We have been working for the last several weeks as a senior administrative team with a variety of staff and now all of our faculty members to prepare them to provide the remote instruction for this time.”
To help minimize the potential for community spread of the COVID-19 virus, we have made the decision to cancel this year’s Alumni Weekend.
After extensive conversations with campus leadership, we have decided to move to remote instruction for the remainder of the academic year and provide May term instruction remotely only for seniors who require credits to graduate in May.
Transylvania’s national search for its next vice president for academic affairs and dean of the university is continuing through videoconferencing.
We know that many important decisions will have to be made over the next few days and weeks.
At Transylvania, the health and well-being of our campus community is our highest priority.
While on-campus admissions visits have stopped for a while because of COVID-19, we are offering several ways for families to continue to learn how Transy can be a life-changing college experience for their students.
All athletic competition (conference and non-conference) at HCAC member institutions is indefinitely suspended, effective immediately.
In order to reduce the number of staff members on campus, we are encouraging as many of you as possible to work remotely or on rotational schedules.
