A message to our students from the Office of the Provost, Dr. Robert Murray - 3/15/2020
Tomorrow we begin our temporary online instruction program. Your professors have spent this past week preparing your classes for you so that your education will be as seamless as possible.
However, this complicated process of converting classes to an online format relies on one very simple step: all students must check their stac.edu email every day, many times a day.
Taking part in the online work of the class is equivalent to attending class -- not taking part is the same as being absent. If you are not checking your email, you will not be aware of the classwork and that will jeopardize your grade.
Since you are reading this, it is clear that you are checking your email -- so please be sure to spread the word among all your friends that checking their email may be the only way to get essential information about classes and what is being expected of you.
Good luck this week -- and let me know how I can help.
All the best,
