As you know, the global COVID-19 outbreak is a major concern for all. The health and well-being of Molloy College faculty and students is our primary concern. Therefore, two weeks ago we formed a Coronavirus Response Team, which has been meeting regularly to monitor the situation. The virus is spreading rapidly and as you know Molloy College has worked on a contingency plan for instruction.

As of today, no one in our community has tested positive for COVID-19, however, out of an abundance of caution and concern, Molloy College has decided that effective Wednesday March 11, 2020 all academic course work will transition to an alternate delivery modality (e.g. live streaming, online lectures, projects, etc.). Therefore, the faculty should be in touch with all of their students to inform them of the modality of instruction and any additional assignments that may be involved in a modality shift. While it is difficult to project the trajectory of the outbreak, instruction will continue in alternate delivery modality thru March 28, 2020. The College will continue to monitor the situation and communicate any alteration to the plan.

Students who are involved in clinical placements, internships, etc. should know that we are in contact with those facilities, who are also responding to the evolving concerns associated with COVID-19. Medical Facilities and schools in particular are required to comply with the guidelines established by the Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control to ensure that their community remains safe.

All faculty should know:

March 11 thru March 28 courses will be provided in an alternate delivery modality

Faculty should contact their students to notify them regarding their instructional plan and their expectations

Campus remains open and only classes are moving to an alternate modality

Please submit the instructional plan for your courses as directed by your dean

There are teaching resources available on the website.

Faculty who would like additional support should contact an instructional designer to discuss options

All students will be instructed as follows:

March 11 thru March 28 courses will be provided in an alternate delivery modality

Students should await word from their faculty regarding the method of course delivery and be available to participate

Due to the evolving nature of the situation, please consult with your faculty regarding any off campus clinical placements, field experiences, etc

Students who have advisement appointments scheduled should discuss meeting plans with their advisors. Tutoring and Student Support Services will be available remotely

Library resources are available remotely

Know that there is information available to assist the Molloy Community in the use of alternate delivery modalities.
