07 Jan TRI-B / COVID-19 Important Update
Dear GCNYC Community,
All Trimester B classes will be conducted remotely for the entirety of the term, which begins January 19, 2021.
This decision is made in the interest of the community’s safety as the United States faces a strong surge of the coronavirus, and the New York City metropolitan region sees a steady increase in cases and hospitalizations.
We all look forward to the time when we can be together at 64 Wooster St., and we are hopeful that that day will come before the close of 2021. The circumstances we find ourselves in are increasingly trying, but I have been inspired by the activity of our whole community in the virtual home we have created since March. We can continue to look forward to being together on Zoom during classes and at our many virtual events that include the speaker series Resilience and Reconstruction, which will continue through March; January Induction; and groups such as the Student Association and the newly launched Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Group. And GCNYC will continue to work on strengthening online learning and communication through the use of Blackboard in addition to Zoom.
While 2020 has been a challenging year perhaps like none other in our lifetimes, our community gives us much to be grateful for.
All the best,
Jacqueline LeBlanc, Ph.D.
Vice President and Provost
