COVID-19 Response

COVID-19 Response

Dear Kettering University Online Faculty and Master Learners,

We are all experiencing an unprecedented time in our lives dealing with the impact of the Covid-19 virus. This has meant dramatic changes in how we work, educate our children, and socialize.

Kettering University’s Covid-19 Response Team has been meeting regularly since late January and have made a range of decisions to continue to provide on campus and Online students high quality education experiences.

As a KUO student, you should experience no disruption in your education and courses. If, however, there is an issue in your course, for example a professor who is not responding after 24 hours or a fellow classmate that does not respond to messages, please reach out to me directly via the Course Concern Form located in the Toolbox area of your classroom. We can follow up to ensure all is well with an individual.

I hope all of you have been reviewing your Kettering email and reading the notes and messages from Dr. Robert K. McMahan, our University President. He is working diligently to keep the entire campus, our alumni, and partners updated and informed on decisions.

I also want to make you aware of free counseling services available to our students through the Toolbox area of your classroom. I urge anyone feeling they could benefit from talking to a trained professional to take advantage of these counseling services.

As always, my team and I are here to support you during your coursework and for the duration of your educational experience at Kettering University. Please reach out to your professional advisors with any issues; they will relay those concerns to me.

In the meantime, please take care of yourselves and your families, which are always the priority. Keep in contact with any issues as the term begins and continues. Practice good social distancing as well as washing your hands frequently.

We also want to keep in mind our medical professionals and first responders. Keep them in your thoughts as they work hard to help all of us. Let us all practice moments of kindness and patience with one another. I believe there has never been a time like now to show our true humanity and the best that we can offer one another as members of this connected global network. Please take care of yourself and again, reach out with any concerns.

Christine WallaceWith care and concern,

Dr. Christine M. Wallace
Vice President-Kettering Global
