Subject: Update from COVID-19 Preparedness Team
Dear Campus Community,
The Spring 2021 Semester begins next week, and we are looking forward to seeing our students back on campus. When the semester starts on January 11, classes will be held as scheduled with a mix of face-to-face, online and hybrid mode of delivery. Departments will maintain minimum staffing levels on-campus, to have their locations open to serve faculty, staff and students in-person, as necessary.
We know our students thrive when they are in an environment that engages and supports them. That is the basis for our Spring Forward plan that launched over break and was in response to concerns students shared throughout the fall. By easing registration and making NKU more affordable, we have removed some barriers for our students. We are also committed to connecting with them in new ways and supporting their mental and physical health. Keep an eye out for more on upcoming programs and activities.
A foundation of our Spring Forward plan is the emphasis on our Norse Nine principles. Campbell County remain a red zone; therefore, the university will continue to follow the Commonwealth’s guidelines. The COVID-19 Preparedness Team will also monitor the situation and share recommendations as necessary.
Thank you for all you are doing in support of NKU and to keep our campus community healthy.
