Update: Coronavirus Impacts - "Keep Learning" Site & Resident Students Move-Out Info

Tuesday, March 17, 2020

We are writing to you to share some important updates in light of the updated guidance from the UNC System earlier today.

Resident students received an email this evening outlining the process for moving out of residence halls. It includes guidance for those already on campus who will be departing, and those currently off-campus who may want to return to retrieve belongings. Resident students were notified that they will receive another communication from their Resident Coordinators before 10 a.m. tomorrow (Wednesday). Students should direct questions to their Resident Coordinators only after carefully reviewing the information they’ve received. Please be patient, as these staff members are working hard to prepare for the move-out process in their areas.
On the academic front, we are pleased to announce the launch of Keep Learning, a new website developed via a collaboration among SGA, DEel, the Center for Teaching Excellence and ITS. The site will feature technology resources and tools as well as a way for students to submit questions about learning online. Content will be added to the site before and after the resumption of instruction (via online or alternate means) on March 23. SGA is also helping UNCW identify students who don’t have sufficient technology resources or laptops for use off campus; students can contact SGA via email to explore support resources available.
Finally, please see this curation of offerings from internet service providers in support of students/instructors who will be shifting to online/alternate instruction.
Employees, please note that Human Resources is in the process of conveying information and guidance to supervisors about the designation of “Communicable Disease Mandatory Employees.” Additional guidance will be shared with all employees tomorrow (Wednesday) regarding special leave provisions as conveyed by the UNC System.
Additional updates will be shared tomorrow. Thank you for your ongoing patience and cooperation.
