At the start of Transylvania’s second week of remote learning, Interim President John Williams recorded a message for students, faculty and staff.
Students will be issued a credit equal to 40% of the room and board fees assessed for the winter term based on the room and meal plan for which they were charged.
While offices will be closed for in-person visits until further notice, university personnel are available by telephone or email during regular business hours.
“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.
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.
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.
