Richmond) – Glenn Dubois, the chancellor of Virginia’s Community Colleges, made the following statement today on how the colleges will be offering classes for fall 2021:
“Virginia’s Community Colleges will operate with great flexibility in how classes are conducted for fall 2021. Each of our 23 colleges, in compliance with CDC guidelines and in consultation with local health officials, will offer classes in ways that promote health and safety while meeting its students’ academic and training needs. Individual institutions will offer an array of on-campus, online, and flexible courses and other services that allow them to meet a broad range of student needs and preferences.
“Further, I would encourage, in the strongest possible terms, all students, faculty, and staff to receive a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible for their own personal safety as well as that of the campus community and adhere to the mask-wearing and social distancing guidelines that minimize the possibility of spreading the COVID-19 virus.”
