Safe Return to Campus
Email from President Davidson:
A message to the Roadrunner community
March 15, 2020
Dear Roadrunner Community,
I am writing to let you know that beginning tomorrow, Monday, March 16, there will be no in-person, on-campus classes for MSU Denver students. However, online classes will continue and the campus will remain open for limited operations. We believe this action will best support our efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19 by maintaining social distance, and it will allow our faculty and staff more time to effectively prepare for the March 30 deadline to transition to online course delivery for the remainder of the semester.
Students: Please contact your instructors and other faculty members with any questions or concerns you might have, and please check your email frequently. Many faculty have already transitioned to remote course delivery while others are in the middle of this process and will soon be finished. During this time, we also encourage you to check the University’s COVID-19 website and social media for regular updates. The MSU Denver community of faculty, staff and administrators are here for you!
Staff and Administrators: On Friday, we also announced a liberal remote-work policy that allows for appropriate social distancing to support the health and wellness of our employees, while still fulfilling the MSU Denver mission. We encourage you to work with your supervisor tomorrow to determine next steps as we strive to further limit our overall on-campus presence in the coming week.
I want to thank everyone for your ongoing patience as we continue to manage and respond to COVID-19. This is an unprecedented situation for our community and the world and no one has all of the answers. But the efforts of our staff, faculty and students during these extraordinary times have been remarkable and I could not be prouder.
Know that the University is committed to placing the health, safety and well-being of our people first. Please continue to take care of yourselves, your families and each other during the coming weeks as we face these challenges together.
Janine Davidson, Ph.D.
