In light of the pandemic Coronavirus/COVID-19, and the recommendations made by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and state and federal officials, New College Franklin will be adjusting its classes for the remainder of the semester.
Beginning Wednesday, March 18, 2020, all class meetings will be offered exclusively through teleconferences available online through platforms including Google Meet and Zoom; this will include an option to call into class if students are unable to access the internet or quality is low. Classes will continue to meet at regularly scheduled times, assignments will be completed as per the syllabus for each class, and all documents, class materials, and assessments will be available through Populi, as before.
At this time, we plan to hold graduation exercises on May 9, 2020 as scheduled; however, a final decision will be made at a later date. All other on campus events have been cancelled for the remainder of the semester.
Please note that this is not a transition to online education as technically defined by the Department of Education; it is, however, a change in method of how we offer classroom lecture and discussion. This ensures the quality of the content, and upholds to the best of our ability, the community focus that best describes New College Franklin.
