During this very difficult period, SLU is guided by two principles: First and foremost, we are dedicated to the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff. We are doing everything we can to mitigate the impact of the current public health crisis on our School community. Second, we are committed to maintaining the continuity of our academic programs, courses, and services. To meet these objectives, we have transitioned to distance learning and remote work effective Thursday, March 19th.
We thank you for your patience as we continue to develop and improve the systems that will allow our students to complete the semester—and our faculty and staff to carry on their work—remotely. The important point is that we all share a common goal and we are all working together. In that way, we will weather the storm!
Although there is no faculty or administrative staff working at our 43rd Street campus, we will all be working remotely and available via e-mail, phone, and various advanced technologies. You can reach a live SLU operator who will assist you or direct your call during regular business hours by calling (646) 313-8300.
In moving to online instruction, we have focused on technologies that are the most effective and the most equitable. SLU’s faculty and staff have been working tirelessly to ensure that the educational objectives of courses and goals of programs can be met through various methods of delivery. Until further notice, courses will be conducted using remote tools including telephone conferencing, email, Blackboard, ZOOM, and a range of other technologies designed for remote learning. Faculty have reached out to all their students to inform them about the mode of distance learning that will be utilized. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your course(s), please reach out to your instructor or call the SLU main desk at (646) 313-8300.
