Spalding will share important local information on this webpage – please scroll all the way through to find info that may apply to you – as well as through email and social media.

March 25, 2020 | Campus closure and online learning extended; Commencement decision to come in late April

March 25, 2020

Due to the coronavirus, the Spalding campus is closed and all classes have been moved to an online platform to ensure social distancing.

Provost Dr. John Burden announced in a message to students on Wednesday, March 25, that for the safety of the Spalding community, the suspension of face-to-face classes will extend to at least May 11, which is the start of Session 6. Dr. Burden’s message also stated that Spalding will make a decision in late April about the fate of Commencement, which is scheduled for June 6.

Here is the provost’s message:

Dear Spalding Students,

As concern continues over the spread of the coronavirus, the safety of our students and employees remains our top priority. As a result, Spalding’s academic leaders have decided to extend the University’s suspension of face-to-face and hybrid classes through the entirety of Session 5.  All classes will be conducted fully online until at least May 11, 2020.

The campus will remain closed except for the small group of students still living in the residence halls and the employees who are needed to ensure their care.  Students who left the residence halls earlier this month should expect to remain at home until at least May 9, 2020.

We hope everyone is adjusting well to the move to fully online learning that began on Monday for most students. Please maintain contact with your instructor during this time. We have asked all faculty to be as flexible as possible to meet student needs during this crisis.

Commencement Decision Late April   

We expect that many students have questions about our plans for Commencement, which is scheduled for Saturday, June 6. We continue to hope that we will be permitted to host some variation of Commencement. To keep this hope alive, we will wait until the last reasonable moment to make a final decision. Because students will need to order regalia, and families might need to make travel plans, we will announce our decision in the last week of April. We suggest that students postpone ordering their regalia or making travel arrangements for their families until we announce our decision.

Students who plan to graduate should still submit their Application for Graduation through Web Advisor. Applications should be submitted no later than 8 a.m. on Friday, April 24.  Commencement 2020 is open to all graduating students who have already or will complete requirements from Oct.9, 2019 through Aug. 15, 2020.

We thank everyone for their understanding and for adapting to this unprecedented disruption to our campus operations and the way of life in our country. The Spalding community is strong, and we will get through this together.

Sincerely,

Dr. John E. Burden
Provost
Professor of Chemistry
Spalding University

Employee Town Halls Continue: Spalding is also continuing to host virtual town halls for employees at 3 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. More than 60 faculty and staff joined the call Tuesday afternoon. Employees, refer to the meeting request sent on Tuesday, March 24 by Presidential Executive Assistant Mara Baker for details on joining those calls. They should appear in your Outlook calendar.

Other COVID-19 Information

Spalding classes going fully online, effective March 16, until May 11
Out of an abundance of caution, President McClure announced on March 11, 2020 that Spalding would be moving all face-to-face classes online, effective Monday, March 16. Initially Spalding planned to return to face-to-face classes on April 5, but Provost Burden followed up with a March 25 message to students announcing that in order to continue preventing the spread of the virus, the University is extending the suspension of in-person teaching and learning until at least May 11, which is the first day of Session 6. The campus will remain closed.
Residential students
On-campus residential students who have left the residence halls should not return until May 9. Spalding anticipates offering a credit on tuition, housing or dining next semester to students who have left the residence halls and have no outstanding balance. The value of the credit will be based on the number of days campus is closed and the number of days the student is out of the hall. Federal regulations regarding financial aid will also be considered. Residential students, refer to an email from Dean of Students Rick Hudson from the morning of Wednesday, March 25 for more information.

Please contact Dean Hudson at rhudson@spalding.edu or 502 873-4488 with any questions or concerns.

Work-study students and graduate assistants
Spalding’s on-campus work-study students should stop working and not report to campus, though they will continue to be paid. Work-study students and supervisors can refer to an email sent by Financial Aid Director Michelle Standridge on March 13 for more explanation of their situation.

Graduate assistants, meanwhile, should also not report to campus and will continue to be paid, but they will be allowed to work from home with the approval of their supervisor. GAs, please contact your supervisor to see if work from home can be done in your area. GAs can refer to an email from Graduate Dean Kurt Jefferson on March 20 for more information, and they can contact him at kjefferson@spalding.edu with questions.

Clinicals, Practicums, Fieldwork, Experiential Education
Students enrolled in off-campus fieldwork, clinicals, practicums, internships and other such experiential educational programs are no longer required to continue those placements. Students should contact their Spalding instructor or program coordinator if they would like to continue working in their placements on a voluntary basis.
Technology form for students
With Spalding set to move to online classes only until May 11 as a safety response to the coronavirus, students will need access to the Internet and a computer to complete their coursework.

Students who do not have access to a computer or tablet with a recent Windows or Mac operating system, or who do not have access to the Internet, should fill out this brief technology form to inform the university of your needs. If you have access to a computer and the Internet, don’t fill out the form.

The Spalding Library will remain open for in-person visits to accommodate only the students who lack any other access to a computer and the Internet. You must receive permission to visit. See below or go to the library’s COVID-19 page for more information: https://library.spalding.edu/covid19/home

Refer to the “Student Resources” heading at the bottom of this page for information on a new offer from Charter Spectrum to provide free broadband Internet access for college students.

May I use the library?

Effective Monday, March 30th until further notice, physical access to the Spalding University Library will be limited to specific faculty, staff, and students who otherwise lack the necessary technology to do their work from home. Please contact Senior Library Services Manager Mimi O’Malley momalley@spalding.edu or Chief Technology Officer Ezra Krumhansl ekrumhansel@spalding.edu for access. These patrons may enter the building through the accessible door with their Spalding ID.

New Pass/Fail Policy for Spring 2020

Spalding Provost Dr. John Burden wrote in a March 24 message to students that for Session 5 and Session 6, students will have the option of taking any class, including graduate courses, “pass/fail” instead for a letter grade policy.  Refer to Dr. Burden’s explanation of the new policy for more information.

RELATED | Provost Burden’s announcement of new Pass/Fail policy

These changes are in response to the switch from face-to-face and hybrid instruction to online-only instruction. Taking a class pass/fail is optional. This policy revision is in effect for Spring 2020 only. Students, please should carefully consider the implications of taking a course pass/fail, in particular if you are an undergraduate who plans on applying to a graduate or professional program. You should also consult your academic and financial aid counselor if you are considering this option. Students who receive tuition assistance through their employer should contact their Human Resources department. Student-athletes should consult with your academic advisor, coach or athletic department staff over whether taking classes pass-fail could impact your NCAA eligibility.

Virtual Student Town Halls
Students likely have a lot of questions about their educational journey during this pandemic. Spalding’s Office of Student Development and Campus Life (SDCL) hosted the first two virtual town halls for students on Wednesday, March 25 and will hold more next week at times to be announce. Continue to check your email and this page for details on joining. The town halls are a time for students to ask questions of the administration. SDCL will do its best to record and share the meetings for students who are unable to join in live, or share the key takeaways.

VIDEO REPLAY: The first student town halls of Wednesday, March 25, are available to rewatch on YouTube. A lot of ground was covered and many questions answered during those sessions that included President McClure and Provost Burden, Dean of Students Hudson, the academic deans and many others.

Questions can be asked live during the GoToMeeting call or in advance by submitting questions to socialmedia@spalding.edu.

Refer to a Tuesday morning, March 24 email sent to students from “New at SU” for instructions on how to log or call into the virtual meeting.

What is the status of Commencement?

At this time, Commencement is still scheduled for Saturday, June 6. Provost Burden wrote in a March 25 message to students that the University continues to hope that we will be permitted to host some variation of Commencement. To keep this hope alive, Spalding will wait until the last reasonable moment to make a final decision. Because students will need to order regalia, and families might need to make travel plans, we will announce our decision in the last week of April. Students are advised to hold off on ordering their regalia or making travel arrangements for their families until we announce our decision.

Students who plan to graduate should still submit their Application for Graduation through Web Advisor. Applications should be submitted no later than 8 a.m. on Friday, April 24.  Commencement 2020 is open to all graduating students who have already or will complete requirements from Oct.9, 2019 through Aug. 15, 2020.

Employees urged to work from home
President McClure sent a message to faculty and staff on Monday, March 16, that the campus would be closing for everyone but a small group of residential students and the employees essential to ensure their care.

All employees should work from home until May 11 except for those essential on-campus departments that were specified in President McClure’s March 22 all-employee email. Face-to-face classes at Spalding have been suspended until at least May 11. Campus buildings are closed and will not reopen until further notice. Please consult with your supervisor to make appropriate arrangements to work from home. Contact Jennifer Brockhoff, Executive Director of Human Resources, at hr@spalding.edu if you need assistance creating an at-home work plan.

Refer to this comprehensive guide for Spalding employees who are working from home (accessing voicemail, having your office phone direct to your cell phone, using GoToMeeting and Microsoft Teams to conduct virtual meetings, etc.): https://spaldinguniversity.freshservice.com/support/solutions/folders/8000089365

Paid time off (PTO) for employees

The expectation is that nearly all employees will be working from home to some extent, so Spalding is suspending the need to file PTO until further notice. Contact your supervisor or the HR staff at hr@spalding.edu with questions.

Tele-Health Reminder for Employees
If employees feel unwell, Spalding’s health insurance plan provides access to Live Health Online services. This allows you direct access to a provider through a video chat. You can access this service by downloading the app or by visiting this link.

If you are enrolled in the medical plan, the cost per visit is a $10 copay. During this time, it’s recommended that employees go ahead and set up an account by entering your information to avoid the urgency of when you may need to utilize this benefit.

Virtual Town Halls for Employees
On 3 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, we will host a virtual Spalding town hall for all faculty and staff. Participation is optional, but this is a chance to get updates, ask questions and share concerns. Faculty and staff, refer to an email from Public Relations Director Steve Jones from Tuesday, March 17 for details on joining the town hall.
Stay updated
Students, faculty, staff and students should regularly check their Spalding email accounts for updates, and this page will be updated as well.

New Online Bookstore
Spalding is continuing its move to an online text bookstore for Session 5. Students may order course materials at https://spalding.textbookx.com/institutional/index.php. Faculty should also visit the website and double-check that their book orders have been loaded correctly.

What Precautions Should I Take?
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. To avoid coughing into your hands, you can cough into your elbow.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; use clean tissues.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick (fever, cough, sneeze, and difficulty breathing). To avoid close contact, stay at least six feet away from others.
  • Stay home if you feel sick.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Most every building on campus has standing or wall-mounted hand-sanitizer dispensers that are usually located near the entrances and elevators. Make a point of using these dispensers when you pass by them.
  • Spalding’s housekeeping staff is doing extra cleaning of surfaces and objects such as door knobs and handles, elevator buttons, faucets and stairway handrails that are often touched by hands.
What If I Feel Sick?
The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to those of the flu or even a common cold, including fever and symptoms of lower respiratory illness such as cough and difficulty breathing. In some cases, the virus has led to more severe lower respiratory tract illnesses, including bronchitis and pneumonia. If you are experiencing symptoms, you are strongly encouraged to stay home and contact your medical provider for advice, calling ahead before you visit. The state’s COVID-19’s hotline is (800) 722-5725.  If you have been traveling and develop symptoms, or if you have been in direct contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, please avoid campus and self-quarantine for 14 days.

In the event that an employee tests positive for COVID-19, you are asked to please contact HR Executive Director Jennifer Brockhoff at jbrockhoff@spalding.edu for important guidance on your coverage and benefits.

What If I'm Traveling?
With spring being a time of year when students and families traditionally travel, Spalding University is requesting all students, faculty and staff who plan to travel or have recently traveled to fill out this confidential form describing your recent or upcoming travel, domestic or abroad. If you have traveled to a foreign country that is under a CDC travel notice due to coronavirus or plan to travel to one of those countries, you are required to notify Spalding. For anyone else, participation in the form is voluntary but encouraged. The information will only be used as a reference to contact you in case of an emergency related to COVID-19.

As for university-sponsored travel, Spalding is prohibiting university-sponsored foreign travel, and it is limiting university-sponsored domestic air travel. University-sponsored car travel is still permitted.

Other considerations: If you are traveling abroad, please consider the potential ramifications of travel restrictions that could be placed on you or other travelers by the U.S. government or a foreign government. Sudden restrictions could complicate your trip or your return home.

*Anyone who has traveled to New York City, which has seen a wide spread of coronavirus case, should self-quarantine upon arriving home, according to a medical expert on the White House Coronavirus Task Force.

*Another note - The CDC is advising that all Americans defer cruise ship travel worldwide.

If you have been traveling and develop symptoms, please avoid campus and self-quarantine for 14 days.

What Should a Prospective Student Know?
Spalding’s Admissions team is available to answer questions, schedule future visits or help set you up with a virtual tour. Contact them at admissions@spalding.edu or (502) 585-7111.
