Dean’s Statement on COVID-19

The School of Education continues to closely monitor developments surrounding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), with a focus on protecting the health and well-being of our students, communities, faculty, and staff.  At this time of unprecedented challenges, the School of Education faculty and staff are available to assist you. All classroom instruction will be conducted virtually through (at least) the end of this academic year.  Summer courses are also expected to be offered online.

In the words of CUNY Chancellor Félix Matos, “In a time of crisis, institutions like CUNY that are integral to the life of our great state and city and its future have an especially important role to play. CUNY’s role in the face of the challenges posed by the coronavirus is both to protect the safety of our community members and to ensure that all of our students, regardless of their circumstances, are able to continue their education.”  SOE activities including classes, admissions, and other projects are taking place remotely.   

This is a rapidly changing situation. More information is available from CCNY. Also, the School of Education has compiled a list of resources, including sections on health and safety, emergency support services, and emotional support, as well as specific resources for teachers, families, children, and caregivers, and for School of Education-specific issues. Furthermore, please reach out to your program directors, professors, and these offices for assistance.
