FLINT — Mott Community College (MCC) has closed all college sites to the general public through April 5. The MCC Board of Trustees meetings and the Board Committee meetings will take place and are open to the public for college business continuity purposes.
There will be no face-to-face classes from through April 5. There will be no on-campus food service offered during these three weeks.
Already scheduled online courses have already resumed.
During the week of March 16 – 22, College faculty, staff and students will prepare for tele-work and tele-learning. Extensive training opportunities will be offered on campus and online for using the new learning management system Canvas, Zoom videoconferencing and other technology products. The dates and times will be listed on the MCC COVID- 19 information webpage at www.mcc.edu/ Coronavirus.
Additionally, the College is cancelling all non-essential events and gatherings regardless of their size (“non-essential events” are those that are not required for the day-to-day business continuity of the College) at this time through the end of April 2020.
Events related directly to spring 2020 graduation are still considered to be scheduled (not yet canceled) but are being assessed daily for their feasibility. Students, faculty and staff should continue to monitor their MCC email and for all updates. The public is encouraged to visit www.mcc.edu/Coronavirus for the most recent notifications about College operations.
Jason Wilson, Vice President of Student Success Services, and Dr. Russell L Bush are the College’s liaisons to the Genesee County Health Department. They will ensure we follow CDC guidance for higher education institutions and coordinate appropriately with local and state health officials.
MCC encourages the campus community to remain home if they are sick and follow CDC-recommended protocols to avoid contracting the Coronavirus.
College leadership will continue to monitor and assess the situation. Because the situation continues to be fluid and changes rapidly, plans may be altered daily. Please review frequently the MCC COVID-19 Information webpage to gather the latest information about College operations. — G.G.
