covid-19更新,2020年9月4日

Dear Davis & Elkins College community,

Thanks to a College community that dedicated itself to good choices and a healthy environment, D&E completed the week with no new COVID-19 cases. This reflects a D&E community committed to safety and health, which is highly commendable. We have seen bad behaviors on other college campuses across the nation where students did not follow safety guidelines, and those behaviors have led to disastrous consequences. Way to go, Senator Nation!

While other campuses are closing due to COVID outbreaks, we are thriving. It’s because of our plan.”

D&E course delivery update: Adaptability, creativity, and patience

As we come to the close of the third week of classes, we continue to adapt to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic by coming up with creative solutions to the problems we face. Currently, approximately 13% of the courses offered at Davis & Elkins College are being taught wholly online and approximately 3% of the student body has been approved to take wholly online classes. The remainder of the courses employ either an in-person or hybrid (combination of online and in-person) model. All courses, regardless of how they are delivered, are designed to meet the College’s academic standards, fulfill all Division and Department learning objectives, and provide the education students need in a safe and healthy setting.

因为学科有很大的不同,我们提供了很大的自由度,以我们的教师,以确定提供课程材料给学生的最好的方式。影响授课因素包括课程招生和我们的教室和实验室的“covid能力”。因此,学生可以继续看到各种方法来讲授课程,因为我们通过学期做我们的方式。一些课程,尤其是那些与学生入学较少,可能会看到以前各个学期交付变化不大。其他课程都在网上呈现,而讲课的教室投入时间,小组讨论,动手活动,演示文稿或评估。还有的提供测试和在线测验,同时保留在人的课堂时间来进行课程资料的呈现和审查。

While course delivery methods vary and will continue to evolve, we remain committed to providing each Davis & Elkins College student with an education that “prepare[s] and inspires[s] students for success and thoughtful engagement in the world.”

Required D&E online, student training includes Coronavirus Awareness

D&E students will receive an email from Safe Colleges containing links to required training courses. Topics in 需要 online training include “Coronavirus Awareness,” as well as “Title IX Rights and Protections” and “Sexual Violence Awareness.” Included with the 第九条 course is the 政策禁止第九条性骚扰。这些培训课程是 需要 and federal law mandates that the 第九条 course be offered to students.

Any student who does not complete the 需要 training prior to the deadline on October 2 at 5:00 p.m. will receive a hold on their D&E account.

Reminder: D&E continues to follow stringent CDC guidelines

We would like to remind students and all members of the Davis & Elkins College community that we continue to follow current CDC Guidance for Institutions of Higher Education. The recommendation from the CDC is to wear a face covering while on campus unless you are alone in your residence hall room. Remember this is something we do to protect each other.

The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, primarily through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. This spread is more likely when people are in close contact with one another; usually within 6 feet. Maintaining social distancing continues to be very important, and students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors are encouraged to follow CDC guidelines to ensure they are doing all they can to limit the spread of the virus. Davis & Elkins College has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. If you have questions about the health issues connected with COVID-19, contact Diana Burke-Ross, Campus Nurse, at rossd@dewv.edu 或304.637.1234。

Some of the training content addresses sexual and relationship violence. In the event this information is upsetting to you, and you wish to speak with a confidential person about the training or a past experience, please contact Centers Against Violence (304) 636-8433 or D&E’s counselor, Margaret Falletta, at fallettam@dewv.edu or 304.637.1363. Students who wish to report Title IX Sexual Harassment may contact Kate Garlick, Assistant Dean of Students, 第九条 & Section 504 Coordinator at garlickk@dewv.edu 或304.637.1241。

的covid-19安全协议继续执行

As college campuses across the nation fall prey to careless and reckless behavior related to COVID-19, D&E students are reminded of continued enforcement of COVID-19 safety protocols. Simply put, these are special protocols put in place on our campus regarding behaviors related to the COVID-19 global pandemic and steps we can take on the D&E campus to help prevent the spread of the virus.

You can help our College continue to have on-campus instruction by making good choices and adhering to safety protocols. House/suite parties, going to bars, and gathering in large groups will likely increase the community spread of COVID-19 and decrease the likelihood that we are back to normal anytime soon. Negative behaviors that could harm our community cannot be tolerated. Violations of the Davis & Elkins College Code of Conduct will be processed in accordance with the discipline policy (sanctions range from/include fines, residence hall suspension, and expulsion).
