Update from the Provost: 8/10

August 11, 2020

Category: Academics, Faculty, Staff, Students

Dear Students and Families,

Each week until classes begin, you will receive a Weekly Update from the Provost to keep you informed of various details of our Return to Catawba Plan, which emphasizes:

Protecting ourselves – daily self-monitoring; frequent hand washing and sanitizing

Protecting others – maintain physical distancing, stay home if sick or symptomatic, wear face covering

Protecting the Catawba community – keep academic and work spaces clean, participate in testing and contact tracing, follow traffic pattern, stairwell, and entry/exit signs.


View a previous Update from the Provost here, which discusses physical distancing in the classroom and face-to-face, hybrid, and online classes. 

View a previous Update from the Provost here, which discusses daily safety protocols, internships and work-study, and mental and emotional well-being. 

View last week’s Update from the Provost here, which provides some suggestions on how to be prepared for a safe learning experience, as well as information on the Bookstore and the Library. 

This week, I want to share with you some information on our Student Success services: 

Student Success Services and COVID-19:  

The C2C Success Team has been hard at work throughout the summer months and is pleased to announce the launch the following initiatives: 

1.   Student Success Online is a series of seminars presented by the Success Coaches with advice and tips to help students set themselves up for success in hybrid and online courses.  Faculty interested in including the Student Success Online series module on their course blackboard page should contact Dr. Jeff Bowe. 

2.   SI Nights are Monday and Thursday nights, 7:00-8:00, for courses that requested Supplemental Instruction.  The sessions will be conducted face to face, and include hyflex options for students to access the information presented.  SI sessions will be on Microsoft Teams, with course rosters uploaded to the SI Teams site, allowing seamless access to the content for enrolled students. 

3.   Study Smarter Series have been scheduled for September 14-17, and October 12-15.  The series offers five concurrent sessions each day on topics ranging for effective time management, to career planning.  Sessions are 30 minutes each, and begin at 4:00pm.  The sessions will be available on Microsoft Teams, offering hyflex access to the information. 

4.   Success Coaching is being modified this fall as many of the common spaces the Success Coaches used in the past will be temporarily unavailable in our efforts to keep our campus community healthy and safe.  Coaches will continue to offer face to face meetings in their offices.  Students will also have the option of scheduling their meetings remotely.


Mental and Emotional Well-being: 

Catawba realizes this pandemic creates stressful situations for students and their families. Should you need assistance, we urge you to contact Catawba’s Office of Counseling Services by calling 704-637- 4307 or visiting the counseling center located in the Student Affairs Office in the Cannon Student Center. Information about Catawba Counseling Services may be located here

While the Fall may look different than past semesters, some things will always be the same.  Catawba’s true value and mission will always be to offer an education rich in personal attention that helps you reach your highest potential. 

You may have additional questions, concerns, or feedback.  Please feel free to contact me using the “Ask the Provost” form.
