Jun. 23: Returning to Campus Update
I write to share our Returning to Campus plan and invite you a Community Gathering.
Dear Stonehill Students and Families,
As recently noted, the College is committed to providing an in-person campus experience this fall, in the safest manner possible, for as many community members as we can. With plans underway, we recognize that there are still many questions that we do not yet have answers to, and we know that this uncertainty can be unsettling. However, there is also much that we already do know, and we have worked to create an online resource that provides details on our current plans, which are informed by guidance from state and public health officials.
Our approach for mitigating the spread of this virus is rooted in our responsibility to ourselves and our neighbors, as what we do as individuals protects our entire community. As such, prevention is the most important step we can take to protect the health and safety of the College community, and all community members must directly and intentionally promote prevention efforts and mitigation measures.
To that end, we ask that you carefully review Stonehill’s current plan and expectations for this fall. Please know that a virtual student forum will be held on Wednesday, July 1st at 6:30 p.m., which will provide an opportunity to hear from College leadership and ask questions. You can register for the virtual student forum online.
As we return to campus, there is no doubt we will need to re-envision both the academic and overall student experience given the new realities we are confronting. Stonehill will be intentional in our actions, and we must lead with courage and by example.
Thank you in advance for giving this resource your time and attention.
