COVID-19 President’s Update

April 03, 2020 – Don Bureaux

Good afternoon,

As we head into the weekend, I wanted to send a brief video greeting to reinforce some of the information you've received over the past week. (There is a video transcript (PDF 65 KB)also attached for those whose internet speeds don't do well with video.)

I know I've said it before, but I have to keep reminding you: these are unprecedented times. World leaders and health leaders are referring to events from a century ago for any comparisons. Please know that your worries and concerns come from a real place.

Please remember

  • There are supports for you 24/7 – for students and employees
  • There are reliable sources of health and economic information and personal supports – through our Provincial and Federal governments
  • You can access College supports for teaching and learning remotely – Teaching Commons (for employees), our Learning Commons (for students). We continually update our website
  • We are making changes to ensure students are not academically disadvantaged by COVID-19. Here are the latest academic updates

And, above all, please don't forget to be kind to yourself.

With sincere gratitude for all you are doing to pull together as a community.

Don Bureaux
NSCC President
