CAMPBELL UNIVERSITY

Campbell University will resume in-person classes on Monday, Oct. 12, after a two-week pause due to a spike in main campus COVID-19 cases, President J. Bradley Creed announced this week. 

Creed attributed the “meticulous response” of students, faculty and staff — as well as the work of the University’s Health and Safety Committee — to a dramatic decrease in active positive cases. In a statement sent to the Campbell community on Monday, he said main campus undergraduate classes will return with a mix of face-to-face, hybrid and remote learning. 

In addition, all academic buildings on campus will reopen, athletic practices will resume, and operations within the Oscar N. Harris Student Union and Wiggins Memorial Library will be expanded. Dining services on campus will continue to be “take out” only for another week as the University continues to limit large gatherings in one place.

Creed said University administration will continue to “closely monitor new and active cases on campus — current numbers can be found on our Campbell Ready website — and we will continue to adhere to the stringent guidelines set forth by the COVID-19 Task Force.” Guidelines include: 

  • Wearing face coverings in all campus buildings and in outdoor areas when social distancing is not possible.
  • Maintaining a healthy distance (at least six feet) between ourselves and other students and faculty while indoors and adhering to occupancy limits in all rooms and buildings.
  • Abiding by temporary guidelines concerning visitors on campus.  

CENTRAL CAROLINA COMMUNITY COLLEGE

As we work through a unique summer semester, we appreciate your commitment to keeping CCCC safe. We always strive to provide a quality learning experience for our students, and we have demonstrated our strength as an institution over these past three months. As we approach the Fall 2020 semester, please review the following COVID-related updates regarding our academic calendar and college operations.

2020-2021 Academic Calendar

The 2020-2021 academic year will begin as scheduled on Monday, August 17, 2020.

Over the past month, the College engaged with faculty, staff, and students in a number of ways to discuss potential changes to the academic calendar in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. The result of those discussions was the College should begin as scheduled with appropriate measures in place for classroom and personal safety.

Additionally, all departments in Curriculum, Workforce Continuing Education, and College & Career Readiness are preparing to “go virtual” again in case modifications are needed due to COVID-19 infection rates.

Below is a description of measures currently planned to provide a safe learning environment and to protect high-risk members of the College family, as we make plans to reopen CCCC during the Fall 2020 semester.

Classroom Safety

There are numerous benefits to a face-to-face learning environment. With that in mind, CCCC remains committed to safety as our top priority when making decisions about our return to face-to-face instruction. Numerous provisions have been made to protect the health and safety of all students and employees, including:

  • A review of classroom dimensions and furniture has taken place in every classroom on all main campuses, sites, and centers. Classroom capacities are being reduced to allow for appropriate physical distancing in curriculum, continuing education, and CCR courses.
  • Departments have moved many classes to 100% online or made adjustments to offer additional blended (combination of online and face-to-face) course sections that reduce the amount of time on campus across curriculum, continuing education, and in CCR.
  • In Curriculum, additional online sections are being added with synchronous online requirements. These will be coded in the Colleague system with the “C” section number (e.g. PSY 150 LC1). Although the modality will be 100% online, these courses will require specific synchronous meeting times (e.g. MW, 9 – 9:50 a.m.) via Blackboard Collaborate.
  • The College is also reviewing its technology capacity and making necessary upgrades to equipment to record more lectures or have the appropriate technology to maximize distancing efforts in certain departments as necessary.
  • Increased availability of hand sanitizing stations across all campuses, sites, and centers.
  • Classrooms will be cleaned more often and in a coordinated effort between faculty and facility staff members.
