December 15 UPDATE
To: NCMC Students
From: Dr. David Roland Finley, President
As we near the finish line on our Fall 2020 semester, I want to congratulate you on a job well done. Thanks to our collective efforts, we were able to hold classes safely in person for the bulk of the semester. Our Residence Hall remained open with increased safety protocols, our cross-country team had a successful second season, and we were even able to hold our first-ever North Central Trick-or-Trot 5k.
I also want to assure you that we will be masked, socially distanced, and learning in-person again when winter semester begins on January 11.
Those of you who learn best face-to-face will be able to do so safely, and those of you who prefer the flexibility of online classes will be able to learn when and where you want. We will continue our layered mitigation practices of mandated mask-wearing, social distancing, and increased cleaning and sanitization. If it is necessary for our health and safety, we will “flex” some classes between in-person and online delivery so that we can maintain social distancing of at least six feet in our classrooms.
One of the advantages of choosing to attend a small college is the camaraderie among our students, faculty, and staff. We look out for one another, and we all do our part to ensure our collective safety. Let’s continue to be vigilant this holiday season to protect one another.
Here’s to a successful Winter 2021 semester, Together as North Central.
