College of Charleston President Andrew T. Hsu shared the following message regarding upcoming virtual events with the campus community on Monday, Jan. 11, 2021:
Dear Students and Families,
Happy first day of spring semester classes! I want to make you aware of two upcoming virtual events that will help keep you informed about the College’s ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic and our commitment to maintaining high-quality and engaging academic instruction, both in person and online.
- At 5:30 p.m. (EST) on Thursday, Jan. 14, Provost Suzanne Austin and a panel of CofC faculty will conduct a virtual information session for students, parents and families to explain and discuss the online learning modalities we are using this academic year.
This event will highlight the synchronous and asynchronous online learning options as well as the hybrid model, which combines both online and in-person instruction. While this event will not include a live Q&A with the audience, students and parents are encouraged to submit questions in advance via email to email@example.com. We will attempt to address the most common questions and concerns.
The link to join the Information Session on Learning Modalities using the Microsoft Teams Live Event platform is go.cofc.edu/info-session (CofC login credentials are not required).
- At 5:30 p.m. (EST) on Wednesday, Jan. 20, the College will hold a virtual town hall for students, parents and families to provide updates and answer questions related to the COVID-19 pandemic and the spring semester.
We hope you will join this first virtual town hall of 2021 and participate in the live Q&A with our COVID-19 Leadership Team. You may also submit questions in advance of the town hall by sending your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
The link to join the Virtual Town Hall for Students, Parents and Families on the Microsoft Teams Live Event platform is go.cofc.edu/virtual-town-hall-students (CofC login credentials are not required).
As always, thank you for your continued participation, patience and support as we begin another exciting semester. I look forward to seeing you all soon.
