Cleveland State Opens On Tuesday With Adjusted Schedule

Saturday, May 23, 2020

Beginning Tuesday, the campuses of Cleveland State Community College will be operating under an adjusted scheduled for the summer semester.

For the first time since COVID-19 forced the college to study and work remotely, faculty and staff will be on-campus to assist students and visitors in-person. Some classes will also be held on-campus, as well, this semester. Most administrative services in place to support students will be open on the Cleveland, Athens, and Vonore campuses Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. These hours will be in place through Thursday, July 2. Hours for in-person services for the month of July will be decided upon in late June.

However, one will be able to contact the offices of CSCC between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday via e-mail or phone. Those hours of remote access will be in place through July 31. A complete staff and faculty directory is available at clevelandstatecc.edu/directory.  Over the coming weeks, we will continue to consult guidance from health experts and from state government officials as we consider expanding in-person hours of service,” said Dr. Michael Stokes, CSCC vice president of Student Services.

All Cleveland State campuses will be closed in observance of Memorial Day. However, the summer semester will begin on Tuesday. Students are asked to double-check their current schedules before the term begins to make sure if their classes will be held on-campus, online, or hybrid.

For those visiting or attending class on Cleveland State campuses, they will be asked to use hand sanitizing stations located across campus, as well as wear a face mask. One measure one will need to handle before walking on campus is to answer basic health screening questions at mycs.cc/c19q. Answer the questions and an e-mail will be generated for you to show CSCC faculty and staff upon request. Or, one can also print out the e-mail and take it with you when visiting the college.

“The most important thing is that we are taking precautions and implementing these protocols to provide a safe and comfortable learning environment for our community,” said Alisha Fox, CSCC vice president of Finance and Operations.

We believe that the gradual return to campus will help us provide for the needs of our students and prospective students as they resume some on-campus instruction for summer term, while still providing flexible options for study and support services,” said Dr. Stokes.

Why is it that some employees will be getting a raise and others are not? That doesn't really ... (click for more)
