MVC Prepares for Face-to-Face Classes this Fall
Missouri Valley College President Bonnie Humphrey says the College administration is preparing for face-to-face classes to resume this fall.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all MVC classes transitioned online March 16 for the remainder of the spring semester.
“We were able to smoothly transition to online classes in March, and while we are continuing classes online through the spring semester and the summer, we expect to resume face-to-face classes this fall,” Humphrey said.
Missouri Valley College is already making plans to provide a quality educational experience in accordance with any new and evolving health guidelines. New measures are being added to campus this fall including additional healthcare staff in the Student Health Center and developing social distancing practices specific to the MVC campus.
“I miss our students being on campus, and we cannot wait to welcome them back this fall with their health and safety as our top priority,” Humphrey said. “ With the situation changing daily, MVC will continue to provide updates as we move closer to the fall 2020 semester.”
In addition to academics and other extracurricular activities that will have to adapt to any new health guidelines, the National Intercollegiate Association of Athletics (NAIA) plans to have a fall sports season that may look a little different in order to keep student-athletes safe.
“Our current plan is to conduct a fall sport season, culminating in fall championships. But given the uncertainty that will be with us for some time, our plan must be flexible and fiscally responsible, while prioritizing the health and safety of our students. We will continue to work closely with the Council of Presidents and National Administrative Council to explore options and make decisions at the appropriate times,” said NAIA President and CEO Jim Carr in an April 23 update.
Missouri Valley College will continually work with local health officials and the NAIA to develop precautionary measures to keep student-athletes healthy and safe during the fall sport season.
