COVID Updates: Feedback, Town Hall, Resources

This communication was sent to students March 25, 2020. 

Dear WSU students, 

I hope that your transition to a virtual learning environment has gone well. We certainly miss seeing you on campus! I know that many of you are balancing different responsibilities in addition to your coursework, and I just wanted to take a few minutes to check in with you, see how things are going, and to share a few resources.

Survey

We have designed a quick survey to learn how you are feeling, how your classes are going, and to provide a chance for you to provide feedback to our campus administrators. We are not tracking respondents and will only report data in aggregate. Please complete the survey by Tuesday, March 31st at the following link: WSU Student Survey

Town Hall

On Tuesday, March 31, at 3 p.m., we will host a town hall to check in with students, answer your questions, and discuss updates. We also will share some of the feedback from the survey during the town hall. Please join us at the following link: https://weber.zoom.us/s/693374221. We ask that you submit questions ahead of time to covid19@weber.edu. 

Help with the Basics

While classes moving online has been quite the transition for all of us, we know that many of you are facing additional challenges with balancing childcare, changes with work, and possible financial struggles. For resources to help with the essentials, please visit our webpage.

Wellness

During times of great stress and change, it is especially important to take care of yourself and those close to you. Please review some of the resources we have compiled to manage stress during this challenging time.

Online Resources

In addition to the resources noted above, we have two sites that provide up-to-date support information for you. Please take a few minutes to review the resources on each of the sites.

I want to assure you that campus is committed to helping you continue to pursue your education, while taking the necessary steps to keep you, and our greater community, safe and well.

The university continues to collaborate with state and local health officials to ensure that our response is consistent with guidelines to slow or prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our most up-to-date information regarding COVID-19 is located on our webpage.

Again, thank you for your understanding as we work through this rapidly evolving situation. Above all else, please take the necessary steps to protect yourself and your families from getting sick. Please remember to regularly check your student email along with official WSU and Student Affairs social media, and seek assistance if you need it.


Sincerely,

Brett Perozzi

Vice President for Student Affairs
