From President McClure | Mid-Summer Update for the Return to Campus | July 23, 2020

July 23, 2020

Dear Spalding Community,

2020欧洲杯体育足球比分We are about a month away from the start of fall classes at Spalding on Aug. 24, and we couldn’t be more excited for the safe reopening of our campus. This year, in particular, after all our country has gone through, we are energized and inspired by our incoming first-year and returning students, and we can’t wait for your arrival.

As we prepare for our reopening2020欧洲杯体育足球比分 while the COVID-19 pandemic persists, you can be assured that Spalding will continue to make the safety of our students, faculty and staff our top priority.

Led by Chief of Staff and Dean of Operations Chris Hart, our Return to Campus Committee has been meeting regularly and devising a comprehensive plan that will be shared by the first week of August.

Additionally, we’ll soon share a Spalding Promise pledge2020欧洲杯体育足球比分 that all members of the university community who plan to be on campus must sign. This is an important social contract that shows we are all on the same page and working together compassionately to protect ourselves, each other and our larger community as it relates to mask-wearing, social distancing and disclosing when we are experiencing symptoms.

Here are some of the key measures we are taking to ensure the safe reopening of campus:

  • For each academic session, classes will be offered in three primary formats – in-person, online and a hybrid of those two. Because most of our courses are offered in six-week sessions instead of full semesters, we have the flexibility to quickly adjust classes during a term or before the next term. Web cameras will stream every in-person class, meaning that any student who prefers to or needs to participate from home will be able to do so. If public health conditions make it necessary to move in-person classes fully online, we will do that.
  • Our academic and operational leaders have reviewed every classroom and learning space on campus and reconfigured rooms to ensure social distancing. Maximum room capacities have been lowered to meet guidelines for social distancing and crowd sizes.
  • Face coverings must be worn indoors at all times, except for when you’re alone in private offices and residential rooms. Masks are also strongly encouraged in outdoor settings in which you’re near others. A free Spalding-branded cloth mask will be provided to every employee and student while supplies last. Disposable cloth masks will also be available. Free plastic face shields will be available for those who must interact with others within six feet.
  • Every person coming to campus must complete and pass a daily online health self-assessment. This quick assessment will ask basic questions about your temperature, potential symptoms and potential exposure to COVID-19.
  • All students will be strongly encouraged to download a campus public health app that will be used for submitting the health self-assessments and assisting in contact tracing should a positive case occur on campus. This app will protect personal privacy and confidentiality.
  • Wayfinding and directional signage to promote social distancing are being installed in buildings across campus.
  • Sanitation of campus spaces will be a top priority of our housekeeping staff. Anti-viral cleaning solution and wipes will be available in classrooms across campus, and hand sanitizer dispensers are set up in every building.
  • All students living in the residence halls will have a room to themselves while only being charged the less expensive double-occupancy rate.
  • Campus dining will no longer include self-serve options, and students will have dedicated hours of access to dining facilities.
  • Nearly all staff members who are able to do so will continue to work from home in order to reduce the number of people in any given building.

2020欧洲杯体育足球比分Never hesitate to reach out to the Dean of Students, your academic advisor, a member of the faculty, your athletic coach or our financial aid staff with your questions about this fall. If you have not registered for fall classes, we encourage you to do so on WebAdvisor.

We will continue to follow health guidelines set by state and local government and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This is a fluid time for our country and our campus, and when it’s necessary to adjust, we will. Our success this year will require cooperation, flexibility and patience from everyone, and I know we will succeed.  We are a compassionate university, and we will work together to have a great, safe year.

2020欧洲杯体育足球比分All the best,

Tori

Commencement postponed until fall

President McClure announced in an April 30 campus message that Spalding’s Commencement ceremony, originally scheduled for June 6 at Canaan Christian Church, will be postponed until August, September or possibly October, with exact dates still to be determined.

Instead of the large university-wide ceremony in which a few thousand people gather in the same church sanctuary, Spalding will hold a series of smaller ceremonies for individual academic disciplines, likely spread out over multiple dates this fall and held at multiple venues on or around campus. This approach will help us limit the number of people who are on campus or at a single venue at the same time. Refer to President McClure’s April 30 message for more details.

New Pass/Fail Policy for Spring 2020

Spalding Provost Dr. John Burden wrote in a March 24 message to students2020欧洲杯体育足球比分 that for Session 5 and Session 6, students will have the option of taking any class, including graduate courses, “pass/fail” instead for a letter grade policy.  Refer to Dr. Burden’s explanation of the new policy for more information.

The online form for requesting the pass/fail option is available at the following link: http://toolkit.turkceliste.com/Tool/PassFailForm

Alternately, students can navigate to the form from Self-Service by opening the “Academics” menu and choosing the “Request Grade Change to Pass/Fail” option: http://selfservice.turkceliste.com/Student/

RELATED | Provost Burden’s announcement of new Pass/Fail policy

2020欧洲杯体育足球比分These changes are in response to the switch from face-to-face and hybrid instruction to online-only instruction. Taking a class pass/fail is optional. This policy revision is in effect for Spring 2020 only. Students, please should carefully consider the implications of taking a course pass/fail, in particular if you are an undergraduate who plans on applying to a graduate or professional program. You should also consult your academic and financial aid counselor if you are considering this option. Students who receive tuition assistance through their employer should contact their Human Resources department. Student-athletes should consult with your academic advisor, coach or athletic department staff over whether taking classes pass-fail could impact your NCAA eligibility.

FAQ's about New Pass/Fail Policy
Provost Burden announced in a March 24 message to campus that Spalding is adding a pass/fail option for all undergraduate and graduate courses during sessions 5 and 6 to help ease the transition to online classes through at least May 11. Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about the pass/fail policy in order to help students better understand it.

Will I automatically get a pass/fail (P/F) grade for my class?

No. You have the option of selecting pass/fail, but it will not be automatically granted.

When should I decide whether or not I want a P/F grade in my class?

You have up to one (1) month after your session 5 or session 6 courses to change to a P/F grade.

Should I take a course P/F if I am on academic probation or have been identified as SAP through Financial Aid?

2020欧洲杯体育足球比分If you are unsure, you should always consult your academic advisor or financial aid counselor on whether to take your course P/F. Generally, always strive for an A, but we advise students to use P/F to have a positive impact on your overall GPA.

Should I ask my professor to grade me on P/F?

No. You do not have to secure approval from your professor. You can email the Registrar’s Office, after being advised on its impact, at registrar@turkceliste.com. Your faculty member does not have to be informed of your decision.

I want to apply to Nursing/Medical/Physical Therapy/Occupational Therapy School. Will they accept my P/F grade(s)?

Begin by talking with your advisors and/or consult with the academic program.  Again, always strive for the highest grade possible. While many colleges and universities are offering pass/fail options this spring, we simply cannot provide a general answer to the approval of P/F courses and how they impact your application/status.

Will there be a record of my grade for class kept by the University?

2020欧洲杯体育足球比分You may request a letter from your professor to note your letter grade in the class up to two (2) weeks after the end of the class. You’ll still have two (2) weeks after that to request it a P/F.

Will P/F affect my cumulative GPA?

2020欧洲杯体育足球比分A passing grade is GPA neutral- so consider whether the letter grade will bring your GPA up or down before taking the pass/fail route. A failing grade will impact your term/semester and cumulative GPA.

Will I still be able to graduate with honors if I take a course P/F?

If your cumulative GPA meets the requirements set forward in the University Catalog, you will still be eligible to graduate with honors, regardless of P/F courses.

Updated policy on registration holds due to tuition balance
Please know that the University recognizes that during this uncertain time created by COVID-19, you may have difficulties making payments to your tuition account. As we approach the start of registration for Fall 2020 classes, please review the following information and the steps we are taking to assist students.

Graduate Student FAQ's During COVID-19
2020欧洲杯体育足球比分 These uncertain times have generated several common questions from grad students about university policies and academic processes that relate to them. For your reference, I have compiled answers and information about a range of topics into a Frequently Asked Questions format. Please review them, and never hesitate to contact me at kjefferson@turkceliste.com, a member of your faculty or your advisor.

PERSONAL TRAVEL

What about traveling personally or home to continue my graduate studies during the COVID-19 advisory period?

Graduate students considering leaving Louisville are encouraged to review with their program directors and faculty that they can meet their Spalding obligations remotely and, if so, notify their program directors that they plan to continue their coursework remotely. Please check the university guidance on travel and COVID-19 as updates to the university COVID-19 webpage are made on an ongoing basis. Graduate students considering international travel, for instance, to return home, should be aware that you may face quarantine and/or flight cancellations. Also, you may be unable to return to campus for an extended period of time after traveling abroad. You may face visa issues and may not be able to travel to some domestic American destinations as well due to the trajectory of the coronavirus virus itself.  If you are unable to return to campus, you may be asked to take a leave, depending on the requirements of your program. All students are encouraged to talk with program directors and faculty and think through the various ramifications of travel at this time in the COVID- 19 advisory period.

RESEARCH ETHICS COMMITTEE/INSTITUTIONAL REVIEW BOARD PROPOSALS FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS DOING RESEARCH

Can I still submit my research projects to the Research Ethics Committee for review and approval during the COVID-19 advisory period where our coursework and research is now conducted online?

Yes. The Research Ethics Committee (also called the Institutional Review Board) continues to operate and accept proposals for research projects that relate to human and animal subject matter and all advanced graduate-level projects must go through the committee for approval or denial. Dr. Cindee Quake-Rapp is the chair of the committee and the committee’s graduate assistant is Nicole Hagan. Please contact Nicole at jhagan@turkceliste.com and for more information on the process, please click on this link: http://my.turkceliste.com/depts/rec/default.aspx

DOCTORAL DISSERTATION DEFENSES

Can my defense be moved to a virtual format?

Yes. During the current COVID-19 advisory period in which academic coursework and research are being conducted virtually via GoToMeeting and other forms of technology, all dissertation defenses will be held virtually over GoToMeeting (the university’s virtual meeting platform). After the University returns to pre-COVID-19 temporary guidelines, dissertation defenses will most likely be moved back to the in-person, face-to-face (non-virtual) format. However, until further notice, these virtual defense guidelines will be put in place.

Can my friends and family attend my defense?

Yes, but only via the teleconference virtual link. Spalding is using GoToMeeting as its virtual meeting platform.  You and your dissertation chair will provide the link to your committee members and to others who might want to attend. At this time, the University does not plan on offering any face-to-face and on-campus dissertation defenses until the COVID-19 advisory period ends.

Can I postpone my defense?

2020欧洲杯体育足球比分It is recommended you review this request with your dissertation chair and program director. Although academic deadlines remain in place, individual students may be able to work with their programs to alter or modify their defense dates.

Can I confirm the completion of my doctoral dissertation and submit my dissertation signature pages electronically?

Yes. In addition to electronic dissertation submission process, all doctoral candidates can submit electronically their 1) dissertation title, 2) name of dissertation chair, 3) date the defense is officially considered completed (after all additions and corrections are complete, which may mean the official completion date is after the actual dissertation if a committee requires further changes to the graduate student’s actual doctoral dissertation), and 4) a dissertation signature page to the Registrar and their graduate program directors. The Registrar will accept scanned signatures as well as electronic signatures. Please send those to the Registrar’s Office at jgohmann@turkceliste.com and copy your graduate program director. Please contact the Registrar or Dean of Graduate Education (kjefferson@turkceliste.com) if you have any questions about the dissertation submission policy, which has not changed from the pre-COVID-19 advisory period policy.

Nearly All Employees to work from home until further notice
2020欧洲杯体育足球比分 President McClure sent a message to faculty and staff on Monday, March 16, that the campus would be closing for everyone but a small group of residential students and essential employees.

Until campus reopens this fall, all employees should work from home until further notice except for essential on-campus department.

Contact Jennifer Brockhoff, Executive Director of Human Resources, at hr@turkceliste.com with questions.

Tele-Health and Health Benefits Info for Employees

Updated April 17: In the wake of COVID 19, we have made some important enhancements to our Spalding health and dental plans.

  1. All COVID-19 related medical visits/treatments will be covered 100% by both Spalding Health Plans (HDHP and PPO).  They have developed special coding for these types of visits/treatments that your providers will be utilizing. This will be retroactive back to March 1, 2020.
  2. Telehealth for medical, mental health and dental visits will be added to both the HDHP and PPO plans.  You will be charged the same rates as you would for in-person visits.  This will be retroactive back March 1, 2020. If you had a telehealth visit on or after March 1, 2020, and were charged a higher rate than your typical office visit, please notify your provider of the update to the plan and have them reprocess the bill.

If you do not have a primary care provider or if your providers are not offering telehealth please remember that through Anthem, our health insurance plan has access to Live Health Online services. This allows you direct access to a provider through a video chat. You can access this service by downloading the app or by visiting .

During this time, we suggest you to go ahead and proceed with setting up an account by entering your information to avoid the urgency of when you may need to use this benefit.

Stay updated
2020欧洲杯体育足球比分 Students, faculty, staff and students should regularly check their Spalding email accounts for updates, and this page will be updated as well.
