COVID-19 has presented universities across the country with many challenges. As we continue to navigate the situation, the success of our students and the health and safety of our campus community remain our top concerns.
With this in mind, we have decided that we will deliver the Fall semester completely online. We have decided this now because we want to have the necessary time to fully adapt courses into rich online learning experiences. The decision to move to online learning was not an easy one to make, but it is in the best interest of our campus community’s safety. While this decision changes the way in which your education is delivered, it does not change the standard to which that education is held. Online delivery, when done with adequate planning, can be a very robust and engaging learning experience. That is our goal.
Although courses will be delivered online for Fall semester, other operations will be determined based on public health orders. We continue to work closely with the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness to ensure our response is informed by the Chief Medical Officer of Health for Nova Scotia.
We know you likely have many questions, and we are working hard to work out all of the details. We want you to feel supported during this unusual time and want to hear from you as well. We will keep you updated as more decisions are made. Please keep an eye on your email and check www.cbu.ca/covid-19 regularly.
