Message from the President on the Coronavirus
Updated: Oct. 6, 2021
I’m happy to announce that HACC’s goal for the spring 2022 semester is to offer more on-campus classes. We will:
- Continue to provide a variety of course instruction offerings, including on-campus instruction, remote instruction and virtual learning
- Use enrollment patterns from the fall 2021 semester and feedback from the student survey to help guide the scheduling process
- Prioritize bringing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) courses on campus when possible to ensure students are prepared for the hands-on elements of careers and transfer opportunities
- Continue to offer online and select on-campus student services
- Continue to evaluate student-enrollment trends, COVID-19 metrics in HACC’s service region and ongoing Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), governmental and medical guidance. We will adjust course offerings as appropriate for student needs and employee and student safety.
Providing these options is a move toward the future of higher education, not just a response to the pandemic. Our students desire a variety of choices, and we must remain flexible to pivot to address their needs.
As always, YOUR safety is our top priority. Although we cannot control COVID-19 and how it spreads or guarantee safety from it, we will continue to do our part to help maintain student, employee and building safety by following protocols, as per governor’s orders and CDC recommendations.
Please note that this information is tentative and subject to change.
