From the desk of Alan Heshel, CBD College President:
We want to thank you for your positive attitude, commitment to your education and ability to adjust to current environment, all while pushing forward to becoming a healthcare professional.
Our community has truly been tested over the past several weeks and we’ve risen to the occasion. We’ve vacated our campus, classrooms and socially distanced from our friends, faculty, classmates and colleagues. We’ve learned new ways of engaging with each other and we’ve adopted new technology, new ways of thinking, and new ways of learning. Despite the obstacles thrown at us by the pandemic, we’ve persevered.
Amid this difficult time, we’re planning for the future. We are working to proactively create a plan to return to campus, but only when local ordinances and public health officials deem opening our campus advisable, as the safety, health and welfare of our stakeholders is a priority. All of the College’s courses will continue to be taught remotely until further notice. All faculty and staff will continue to work remotely and remain accessible for all students during normal business hours. Based on the unique learning needs of our programs, and with due consideration of the facts related to COVID-19, we are exploring the option for certain programs to develop plans to safely administer traditional, in-person, lab instruction on a limited basis. As the county moved to the next step in opening up, we are expecting clinical opportunities to start returning as well. We are in contact with all our clinical partners and are closely monitoring the situation. We are optimistic that soon we will be able to share more details.
It goes without saying that we look forward to welcoming all of you back to our campus in the near future. Until that day comes, please be well and stay safe. You and your families are constantly in our prayers.
Wishing you the best,
