    Latest Updates

    June 20: Update on the Fall 2020 Calendar

    Fall 2020 Calendar

    June 20 (Email from President Denise A. Battles)

    dear members of our campus community,

    i greatly appreciate your patience as we at suny geneseo work to refine our fall return-to-campus plans in response to the covid-19 pandemic. while those plans are not final, as they are subject to approval by the suny system in accordance with guidelines that are emerging from new york state, i write to share an update arising from recent engagement with key campus stakeholders.

    With the hope and expectation that our community will be back on campus this fall, we have developed a proposed Fall 2020 calendar. Understanding that COVID-19 is volatile and easily spread, we created a calendar that promotes health and safety. An overarching aim is to ensure the continued delivery of the high-quality academic and co-curricular experience for which SUNY Geneseo is renowned.

    Our proposed calendar affirms our normal fall semester start and end dates (Aug. 31 - Dec. 22) but repurposes our traditional fall break into two rejuvenation days2020欧洲杯首页: the first at four weeks and the second at eight weeks. A formal break for the Thanksgiving holiday falls at the end of week twelve with classes resuming Nov. 30 and continuing until the end of the semester. The rejuvenation days are designed to create time and space for reflection and recuperation for the entire campus. They, along with the Thanksgiving break, are also useful as potential pivot points in case of a reemergence of COVID-19. Faculty have been encouraged to develop syllabi that have a modular approach attuned to these four-week pivots, while avoiding the assignment of large projects or exams immediately around these days.

    Our planning for instruction includes a blend of face-to-face, hybrid, and online classes2020欧洲杯首页. The Dean of Academic Planning Office along with advisors and peer mentors will work carefully with students to ensure class schedules reflect individual needs.

    this amended calendar emerged out of a multitude of conversations with participants including the college’s academic experience planning team, college senate, united university professions (uup) leaders, student association, faculty, chairs, and deans. thanks to thoughtful input from these stakeholders, the original draft of the calendar experienced several iterations, including specific modifications that addressed considerations of diversity and pedagogy. the final draft, which we summarize here today, has been endorsed by the faculty senate and the cabinet.

    please know that the plans we are developing are comprehensive, addressing essential considerations including health and safety protocols, in keeping with guidance from the suny system, state, and centers for disease control and prevention (cdc) as well as local health department officials. i am proud of the thoughtful and thorough efforts by colleagues across the campus.

    2020欧洲杯首页the persistent uncertainty of the situation is challenging and we are planning in a very dynamic context as we await additional information and guidance from state, federal, and system authorities. at the same time, we want to keep faculty, staff, students and families as informed as possible. we assure you that we will share additional information as it becomes available. in the meantime, we will continue to advance planning that prioritizes the health and safety of our community members.

    sincerely,

    denise a. battles, president

    Families First Coronavirus Response Act

    "dear geneseo employees:

    2020欧洲杯首页i want to make you aware of a newly enacted federal law that provides new york state employees, regardless of attendance rules coverage and bargaining unit, eligibility for new leave coverage due to situations related to the covid-19 public health crisis, as follows:.

    Federal Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act (FEPSLA)

    2020欧洲杯首页leave is available when an employee:

    1. is subject to a federal, state, or local quarantine or isolation order related to covid-19;

    2. has been advised by a health care provider to self-quarantine because of covid-19;

    3. is experiencing covid-19 related symptoms and is seeking a medical diagnosis;

    2020欧洲杯首页4. is caring for an individual subject to either an order, as described above in (1), or self-quarantine, as described above in (2);

    2020欧洲杯首页5. is caring for the employee’s child whose school or place of care is closed, or whose child care provider is unavailable, due to covid-19; or

    6. is experiencing any other condition specified by the federal government; however, the federal government has not yet identified anything in this category.

    Benefits:

    2020欧洲杯首页leave for numbers 1, 2, and 3 above will be paid at 100% of an employee’s regular rate of pay, up to $511.00 daily, capped at $5,110.00 for the two-week period.

    2020欧洲杯首页leave for numbers 4, 5, and 6 above will be paid at two-thirds of the employee’s regular rate of pay, up to $200.00 daily, capped at $2,000.00 for each two-week period.

    fepsla leave does not carry over and expires on december 31, 2020.

    Federal Emergency Expanded Family and Medical Leave (EFMLA)

    2020欧洲杯首页in addition to the leave described above, new york state employees who have been employed for at least 30 days prior to their request for leave may be eligible for efmla. eligible employees are entitled to 12 work weeks of public health emergency leave from april 1, 2020 through december 31, 2020. any fmla an employee used prior to april 1, 2020, for reasons other than those related to covid-19, is subtracted from this additional 12 weeks of efmla leave. this period of fmla does not provide an additional 12 weeks of leave entitlement, but rather provides a new qualifying reason for which leave can be taken. employees are still limited to a total of 12 weeks of fmla for 2020.

    the only qualifying need is that the employee is unable to work or telework because the employee is needed to care for the employee’s minor child under age 18 due to an elementary or secondary school or place of care closure, or due to the unavailability of a child care provider, because of a covid-19 public health emergency. employees who have a child, age 18 or older, who is incapable of self-care because of a mental or physical disability shall be eligible for public health emergency leave.

    2020欧洲杯首页employees eligible for efmla will receive pay at two-thirds of the employee’s regular rate of pay up to $200.00 daily, capped at $10,000.00

    employee’s must submit appropriate documentation to support the use of eflma to the extent practicable. expires december 31, 2020.

    Further details related to the leave categories outlined above can be found on the Human Resources webpage and in the attached document. Employees requesting leave under FEPSLA or EFMLA need to complete the Covid-19 Leave Request Form and submit it to their supervisor for review and signature. An employee must provide as much notice, as practicable under the circumstances, of the need for leave. Completed forms should be sent to Kim Truax, Payroll Coordinator & Employee Leave Manager. (payroll@sc-wakaru.com)

    May 8: Off-Campus Student Move-Out

    Off-Campus Student Move-Out

    May 8 (Email from Dean of Students Lenny Sancilio)

    dear off-campus students,

    i hope you are successfully wrapping up this very unconventional semester. it’s been challenging but perhaps rewarding in ways you may not have anticipated. with the end of the semester so near, you and your families may be planning and arranging for your return home, if you are not already there, or for you to return to geneseo to collect your belongings. what follows is some information that i hope you find useful.

    i would be remiss if i did not remind you that social distancing is still a priority in geneseo during the pandemic, and you need to be respectful of the geneseo community while moving out or in any social gatherings you are planning. there is heightened awareness and sensitivity regarding gatherings and people being in close proximity to one another, so please be responsible in the planning of any celebrations, or better yet, postpone them until a safer time.

    2020欧洲杯首页we expect that some of you may have already been contacted by your landlords regarding moving out. here are some guidelines:

    Retrieval of Items

    2020欧洲杯首页you may have a lease that expires before, on, or about may 31, 2020. if you plan to return to the village before may 16 to collect the belongings you left behind, the ny on pause order will still be in effect, which means you will need to observe social distancing directives of staying six feet apart from others and wearing masks in public. 

    please try to coordinate your return with your roommates and/or housemates to minimize the number of people at your off-campus residence, and in the village, at any one point in time. we highly recommend getting in and out as quickly as possible, while maintaining your personal safety. do not hold social gatherings or extend your stay longer than is necessary to move out.

    Collecting Your Items

    2020欧洲杯首页please adhere to the following plan:

    • Contact your landlord or house manager to arrange moving out.
    • Bring your PPE - gloves, mask, and hand sanitizer.
    • Bring items that will help you to have a successful move out experience - your own cart, tubs, boxes, cleaning supplies.

    Stay Safe During Move Out

    • Limit the number of people coming with you. Only you and one helper is recommended.
    • Do not come to back to Geneseo if you or your helper have been ill with any respiratory symptoms or fever.
    • Limit person-to-person contact - Remain six feet away from other roommates, housemates, and guest helpers during the move out process.
    • Wear your mask at all times.
    • Use cleaning products to disinfect surfaces, as you are able. For example, wipe doorknobs and cart handles with hand sanitizer before and after use.
    • Avoid touching items that frequently come into contact with others.
    • Wash your hands frequently during the move out process.
    • Research stops for food, gas, and housing, if needed. Try to limit your exposure at food establishments, gas stations, or hotels in Geneseo as the return of many students will increase the chances of exposure.

    Trash Disposal

    • Bring garbage bags and put your trash in garbage cans or dumpsters where you live.
    • For large items - like couches or beds - please contact a refuse provider. These items cannot be set out for regular, weekly garbage pickup.

    Geneseo Gives Back

    2020欧洲杯首页if you have gently used items, including some of the bigger items, that you’d like to donate to the interfaith center for sale back to students in the fall, the ifc is open  m-f from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. to receive donations.  a text to sarah mcclean (585-260-0532) will guarantee that someone will be available to receive your donations or respond to a need for assistance in getting your donations to the ifc.

    Shipping & Storage 

    if you cannot come back and retrieve your items by the deadline established by your landlord, you may need to determine how those items will be stored or shipped. several vendors are available to assist with shipping, providing storage or moving items to a designated storage unit. you can discuss allowing a vendor into your apartment, room, or house with your landlord or housing manager. services will be contracted directly through you.  

    Here is a listing of local vendors who may be contacted.

    have a safe and productive summer!

    May 6: Fall Term Academic Planning

    Fall Term Academic Planning

    May 6 (Email from President Denise A. Battles)

    2020欧洲杯首页dear faculty and staff members,

    as we approach the end of the semester, please accept my thanks for the innovative spirit and hard work shown by faculty and staff across the entire geneseo community during a very challenging semester.

    we are not certain what teaching and learning are going to look like at geneseo when classes resume for the fall semester. the unpredictability of this pandemic has complicated instructional planning for college campuses everywhere. whatever form instruction takes this fall, we are committed to our institutional values that foster the educational experience at geneseo: learning, creativity, inclusivity, civic responsibility, and sustainability. these core values are guiding all of our pandemic planning.

    2020欧洲杯首页 we hope and expect that face-to-face instruction and campus activities will resume this fall. that said, it is essential that our planning prioritizes the wellbeing of our community. in particular, we must develop contingency plans should we need to pivot in the interest of health and safety.

    Accordingly, the cabinet has approved a plan submitted by the Academic Experience Work Team that anticipates face-to-face instruction when classes commence in August with provisions to be remote-ready if any reduction of population density is required on our campus. Led by Provost Stacey Robertson, a 20-person team, including faculty, department chairs, the Provost COVID-19 team, and UUP and Senate leadership, developed the plan, which included student input. It allows for maximum flexibility to accommodate a range of likely contingencies while accommodating ease of transition for faculty and students.
     
    2020欧洲杯首页 The Provost will be sharing more details about the plan with faculty and academic staff early next week, including information about various types of professional development opportunities that will be made available beginning the week of May 18.

    the plan preserves much of the current academic schedule but asks instructors to emphasize flexibility and remote-readiness with logical course breaking points. this will accommodate an agile transition across a variety of contingencies.

    2020欧洲杯首页 faculty and staff members have my sincere gratitude for quickly adapting to the remote learning environment this semester with very little advance notice. i encourage faculty members to include refining the remote teaching techniques they have used this semester in preparing for fall classes. doing so will ensure that geneseo students continue to receive a high-quality educational experience in the face of multiple uncertainties.

    two additional work teams also have begun work to develop contingencies related to the impact of the pandemic on campus. interim vice president for student and campus life david braverman is leading the student experience work team and vice president for finance and administration julie buehler ’89 is leading the financial sustainability work team. 

    The work teams will periodically report their progress through a Fall Pandemic Planning wiki2020欧洲杯首页, which is view-restricted to Geneseo users. I encourage you to visit the wiki for ongoing updates from all three work teams as they become available.

    thank you for your continued support, dedication, and resilience in very challenging times.

    April 28: Updated Information on Student Account Adjustments (Credits/Refunds)

    Updated Information on Student Account Adjustments (Credits/Refunds)

    April 28 (Email from Vice President for Finance & Administration Julie Buehler ‘89)

    dear students and families,

    2020欧洲杯首页suny geneseo will make covid-19 adjustments to student accounts before the end of the semester. for many students, the college will issue a credit/refund depending on the account balance.

    To expedite a refund, students should sign up for direct deposit now if they don’t already have it. Instructions are available on the Student Accounts webpage

    The College will process refunds for students enrolled in direct deposit first. Paper checks will be mailed to students not enrolled in direct deposit approximately 4–6 weeks after account adjustments are made. 

    2020欧洲杯首页the following adjustments will be applied to student accounts for spring 2020 as appropriate:   

    Students who moved off campus mid-semester in response to COVID-19 will receive:

       •  a credit for the unused declining meal plan balance for those who discontinued use of the plan.

       •  a credit for 50% of spring room rent.

    Note: Where applicable, room and meal scholarships and waivers will be reduced in an amount proportionate to the COVID-19 room and meal credits.

    Student spring fees will be adjusted as follows:

       •  a credit of 50% of the spring athletic, performance, and transportation components of the comprehensive fee in addition to a credit of 35% (the unused portion) of the student activities fee.

    2020欧洲杯首页   •  a credit of 50% of the spring course lab fees.

    The Student Accounts Office (studentaccounts@sc-wakaru.com ) will process credit adjustments as follows:  

       •  credits will first be used to offset any current outstanding balance.

       •  Any resulting refund will automatically be issued to the student (or the parent borrower in cases where a parent PLUS loan was used). As noted above, students are encouraged to sign up for direct deposit to expedite their refund.

       •  spring semester aid will not be reduced by any credit except in the case of a room waiver or room scholarship, and for a select number of state and private scholarships.

       •  credit adjustments will be visible on the student account center portal within the next ten days.

       •  we encourage students to use any refunds for their student related loan and financial debt.

    2020欧洲杯首页parking adjustments will be made in a second wave with more information coming soon. we appreciate your continued patience as we process your adjustments.

    may you all be safe and well,

    Julie Buehler ’89

    April 28: Planning for the Fall Semester

    Planning for the Fall Semester

    April 28 (Email from President Denise A. Battles)

    dear students and families,

    the uncertainty of the duration of the covid-19 outbreak makes planning for suny geneseo’s fall 2020 semester a challenge. it’s my fervent hope our campus will be back to a near-normal educational environment in august, with face-to-face instruction, student activities, and services resuming. however, because much remains unknown about what our fall circumstances will be, i have formed academic and student-experience work teams to develop plans to ensure your educational progress across a variety of scenarios.

    our decision about fall is not an independent one; the college’s approach will need to conform with guidance issued by our state and the suny system, as well as the centers for disease control and prevention (cdc). our priority for planning is maintaining steadfast adherence to our student-centered mission while ensuring public health and well-being.

    2020欧洲杯首页i appreciate your desire for answers so you, too, can make plans. resolving what fall will look like at geneseo is among our highest priorities, and we will update you promptly when we have a clear picture. thank you for your patience and support.

    sincerely,

    Commencement 2020 Update

    April 27 (Email from President Denise A. Battles)

    2020欧洲杯首页dear class of 2020,

    i can only imagine the letdown you are feeling from the postponement of your commencement due to the covid-19 pandemic. all of us at geneseo share in that disappointment. commencement is something we deeply cherish as the crowning event of the academic year, and it was with tremendous sadness that we made the painful but necessary decision to postpone. 

    2020欧洲杯首页a group of students, staff, and administrators has been intently considering alternatives for an in-person commencement to provide a ceremony that you deserve. i write to advise you that we have decided that rescheduling the celebration for may 2021 is the safest option. we are planning for the ceremony to take place during the 2021 commencement weekend. it will not be combined with the class of 2021 commencement on may 22 but will be a separate event with all of the traditional celebratory moments and recognitions for the class of 2020. we will notify you when we have the date and other details finalized.

    we hoped to schedule your commencement sooner, but limitations in bringing together more than 5,000 people, seasonal weather risks, uncertainties on the availability of appropriate ceremony venues, and other circumstances all regrettably pointed to next year as the responsible choice. survey responses from more than 500 graduating students helped inform our decision.

    We will provide you and your family the commencement next May that you expect and have earned. In the meantime, it’s my hope that you, your family, and friends participate in the virtual Senior Send-Off on May 16 to celebrate your considerable accomplishments at Geneseo. Please accept my congratulations on behalf of all of us at Geneseo; we are proud of your resilience and success.

    thank you, and please continue to stay safe.

    Update for Students With Belongings Still in Residence Halls

    April 24 (Email from Director of Residence Life Sarah Frank)

    2020欧洲杯首页dear students,

    i hope you and your family are continuing to weather this very challenging period. this message is for residential students who arranged to leave items in their residence hall rooms and left campus following the covid-19 outbreak.

    we originally indicated that you would be able to pick up your belongings and check out of the residence halls the week of may 11–15 unless conditions necessitated a change. with governor cuomo’s extension of the state’s stay-at-home order until may 15, that timeframe for retrieval is no longer possible. as soon as the stay-at-home order is lifted, we will reschedule move-out times and provide information on how to proceed. 

    2020欧洲杯首页though it has been unnecessary to date, it’s still possible that your belongings could be moved to a secure storage area if the college’s residence halls are identified for operational needs during the covid-19 outbreak. it if becomes necessary to pack and move your items, we will contact you in advance. 

    If you have any questions regarding moving out or your belongings, please contact reslife@sc-wakaru.com.

    thank you for your cooperation.

    2020欧洲杯首页i want to make you aware of two additional executive orders from governor cuomo that are now in effect regarding the use of face coverings during the covid-19 outbreak, which apply whether you are on or off campus. executive orders 202.17, and 202.18, contain the following requirements:

    201.17: "any individual who is over age two and able to medically tolerate a face-covering shall be required to cover their nose and mouth with a mask or cloth face-covering when in a public place and unable to maintain, or when not maintaining, social distance."

    2020欧洲杯首页202.18: "any person utilizing public or private transportation carriers or other for-hire vehicles, who is over age two and able to medically tolerate a face covering, shall wear a mask or face covering over the nose and mouth during any such trip; any person who is operating such public or private transport, shall likewise wear a face covering or mask which covers the nose and mouth while there are any passengers in such vehicle. this directive shall take effect in the same manner as executive order 202.17, at 8 p.m. on friday, april 17, 2020."

    you also received messaging last week on executive order 202.16, which requires public and private employees to wear face coverings when in direct contact with members of the public to increase the safety of the public.  

    2020欧洲杯首页thank you for your cooperation in adhering to these orders for the safety of all.

    Sincerely,
    Julie Briggs

    April 23: Senior Send-Off: A Tribute to the Class of 2020

    Senior-Send Off: A Tribute to the Class of 2020

    April 23 (Email from Director of Campus Events and Scheduling Andrea Klein)

    dear parents,

    2020欧洲杯首页i want to share with all geneseo parents what we’re doing to honor our graduates in may in the midst of the covid-19 pandemic. 

    our seniors have worked very hard to reach this pivotal point in their career and—even as we continue to plan for a well-earned, though delayed, in-person commencement—we don’t want to let an important milestone like graduation day go unrecognized.

    to help our graduates celebrate, geneseo will launch an online senior send-off—a multimedia tribute to the class of 2020. although current circumstances prevent us from gathering to honor the class in person, we will come together to celebrate their achievements online and offer our heartfelt congratulations and best wishes.

    The Senior Send-Off commemoration site will open on May 16 at 10 a.m., when the first commencement ceremony would have taken place. The site will include brief video messages from President Denise A. Battles, keynote speaker Leo M. Lambert ’76, SA president Adam Hansen, alum Joseph Carr, and other distinguished guests. In addition, video clips from each academic department will let graduates connect with faculty members in their major.

    This online tribute also will include personal messages and congratulations from friends, family, and alumni all over the world—and for that, we’d appreciate your help. If you would like to participate by sharing your best wishes, please visit the , where you can post a 20-word message, a 20-second video, or a photo in honor of our graduating seniors and their accomplishments. 

    An extraordinary year deserves an extraordinary send-off, and your participation will help us honor the Class of 2020. If you have questions about the Senior Send-Off, please contact me at klein@sc-wakaru.com or 585-245-5786.

    planning is underway to reschedule a future in-person commencement, pending guidance from suny, the state, and the cdc, and we will share details on those events here as soon as they’re available.

    sincerely,

    Andrea Klein
    2020欧洲杯首页 Director of Campus Events and Scheduling

    April 15: Face Coverings Required for Public and Private Employees Interacting With the Public

    Face Coverings for Public and Private Employees Interacting With the Public

    April 15 (Email from Assistant Vice President for Human Resources Julie Briggs)

    to the campus community,

    governor cuomo has issued executive order 202.16 requiring face coverings for public and private employees interacting with the public during the covid-19 outbreak, which contains the following new requirement:

    2020欧洲杯首页for all essential businesses or entities, any employees who are present in the workplace shall be provided and shall wear face coverings when in direct contact with customers or members of the public. businesses must provide, at their expense, such face coverings for their employees. this provision may be enforced by local governments or local law enforcement as if it were an order pursuant to section 12 or 12-b of the public health law.  this requirement became effective april 15 at 8 p.m. 

    2020欧洲杯首页direct interaction with the public shall be determined by the employer, but at a minimum shall include any employee who is routinely within close contact (i.e., six feet or less) with members of the public, including but not limited to customers or clients. geneseo students are included in that group.  employees are required to wear face coverings when in direct contact with members of the public, except where doing so would inhibit or otherwise impair the employee’s health.

    SUNY Geneseo’s Director of Environmental Health and Safety, Chuck Reyes, has issued masks to personnel working on campus who meet the criteria established in the order. Employees working on campus who have not received a mask and would like one for work purposes should direct their request and/or questions to Chuck at reyes@sc-wakaru.com.  

    thank you again for all of your help in stopping the spread of this disease.

    Credit/Refunds on Spring 2020 Semester Costs

    March 24 (Email from Vice President for Finance & Administration Julie Buehler ‘89)

    2020欧洲杯首页dear students and families,

    we want you to know that we are working quickly to resolve the financial impact this transition to remote learning will have on a student’s unused campus housing, meals and fees for the remainder of the spring semester while taking into account student’s financial aid awards.

    students living on campus prior to the covid-19 crisis will receive a refund or credit for housing fees based on the proportionate time between when they leave campus housing -- or as cleared by residence life -- and the end of the spring term.

    students with meal plans will receive a refund or credit for the unused portion of their meal plans.

    all students will receive prorated refunds or credits for certain other fees for services that have been discounted due to the covid-19 emergency. the calculation of the amount of the refund or credit is being determined for each of these fees. the fees eligible for a credit/refund include:

    • Transportation fee
    • Athletics fee
    • Recreation and campus life fee
    • Student activity fee
    • The category of “Other Broad Based Fees” as appropriate and approved annually by SUNY System Administration

    As soon as additional information is available, we will update you. Credits or refund approaches will be finalized as soon as possible and certainly before the end of the spring semester. We recognize that this is a difficult time; if you have a critical financial need please be in contact with the financial aid office at (585) 245-5731 or email financialaid@sc-wakaru.com.

    Questions about student accounts should continue to be directed to studentaccounts@sc-wakaru.com2020欧洲杯首页. Please monitor your Geneseo email for further updates.

    may you all be well,

    March 22: Commencement Ceremony Cancellation

    Commencement Ceremony Cancellation

    March 22 (Email from President Denise A. Battles)

    2020欧洲杯首页dear members of the class of 2020 and the geneseo community,

    we have made the difficult decision to cancel commencement 2020, both the master’s ceremony scheduled for may 8 and the undergraduate ceremony on may 16, at suny geneseo. we will work together with the class of 2020 on finding creative and alternative ways to honor our graduates’ remarkable achievements at a later date.

    it is important that 2020 graduates stay connected to the college so we can shape and share plans for a rescheduled commencement ceremony as they come together in the months ahead. please watch for additional messages and for a faq page we’ll be posting on the college’s commencement web page in the near future.

    2020欧洲杯首页we know this is an emotional time for our graduating students, and we realize how much they will miss the recognition and closure that a commencement ceremony would bring. our only comfort in making this difficult decision is knowing that, by doing so, we are taking the best action we can to protect the health and safety of our students, family members, faculty, staff, and those in the greater geneseo community.

    2020欧洲杯首页we chose not to delay this decision to provide certainty for students and families and to further encourage everyone to stay home. the centers for disease control and prevention currently recommends that take place for the next eight weeks. we know that these restrictions are likely to increase.

    students who are successful in achieving the academic standards established by the college will still graduate in may, despite the lack of a ceremony, and will receive their diplomas in the mail later in the summer. we applaud the hard work and determination of our graduating students.

    in the meantime, we hope our impending graduates know that everyone at suny geneseo is incredibly proud of and inspired by their achievements. this has been an exceptionally trying semester for us all, and we appreciate the patience, perseverance, and grace that you’ve demonstrated. your valediction may be a quiet one, but your accomplishments will speak loudly and strongly to the future.

    Sincerely,
    Denise A. Battles
    President, SUNY Geneseo

    March 21: SUNY Cancels All Summer 2020 Study Abroad Programs

    March 21 (Email from Director of Study Abroad Sam Cardamone)

    2020欧洲杯首页dear suny geneseo campus community,

    after careful deliberation and consultation, the state university of new york has made the decision to cancel all study abroad programs for summer 2020. the state department has issued a , recommending no international travel for any u.s. citizen due to the global impact of covid-19 and existing international in-country travel restrictions and quarantines.

    this decision follows new york state governor andrew cuomo’s decision to call all suny students home from spring semester study abroad programs. it has become clear that rapidly evolving responses to the pandemic in nations around the world will dramatically disrupt the normal infrastructure of travel and could leave study abroad participants subject to program disruptions and unacceptable risks.

    2020欧洲杯首页the study abroad office will contact all affected study abroad students and program leaders with more information.

    take care,

    Samuel M. Cardamone, M.S.

    March 20: Notice for Students Following Governor Cuomo’s Announcement

    Notice for Students Following Governor Cuomo’s Announcement

    March 20 (Email from Dean of Students Lenny Sancilio)

    dear students,

    you have already received specific guidance on those who wish to remain in campus residence halls. today, governor cuomo issued an executive order for , mandating social distancing and density reduction (including all non-essential gatherings of individuals of any size for any reason). we are strongly discouraging students from returning to the geneseo area after spring break unless you have no other place to go.

    2020欧洲杯首页students should pick up their belongings and move out of their residence hall prior to noon on sunday march 22nd. as of now, the campus is open and no travel restrictions exist to prevent people driving to campus.

    students residing in off-campus housing are strongly encouraged to move back to their permanent residences as meal options and activities will be very limited in the village and surrounding area.

    2020欧洲杯首页for the small group of students who are approved to live on campus and those who have had to return to the village of geneseo, i’m asking for your full cooperation.

    2020欧洲杯首页spring break at geneseo has not been extended. remote instruction of courses will still begin as scheduled on monday, march 23.

    all instruction for the remainder of the academic year will be delivered via remote learning. students will not be able to access instructional spaces on campus, including labs and performance areas. all students will connect remotely to their classes per directions from their course instructor.

    Students approved to remain on campus for shelter are subject to the remote learning period housing policies until further notice. Failure to comply will result in conduct sanctions, including removal from the campus shelter.

    recognized student organizations are prohibited from having in-person activities, including parties. this will be strictly enforced to help protect the health and safety of everyone on campus.

    2020欧洲杯首页this is an unprecedented time for everyone. we, too, are very saddened by the disruption to your semester and the traditions that come with the end of the academic year. one of the pillars of geneseo is that we care more about others than we do about ourselves. while these directives impact all of us in many ways, please consider how this will have real and far-reaching benefits for others.

    sincerely,

    dean sancilio

    March 20: Provost Update About Classes

    Provost Update About Classes

    March 20 (Email from Provost Stacey Robertson)

    2020欧洲杯首页dear students,

    this is an update on remote learning plans for the week of march 23. this contains important information on college plans for the first week of remote instruction; please watch for communications from your instructors in the coming days about arrangements for your specific courses.

    our first and foremost priority in this situation is the health and well-being of members of our campus community. although we want to preserve as much as possible geneseo’s focus on learning, these circumstances pose many challenges. as we move into remote instruction, please take care of yourselves and your loved ones and know that we are doing everything possible to ensure that processes for continuing your studies at geneseo do not add to your stress.

    Remote Instruction Begins March 23

    2020欧洲杯首页faculty have been instructed to contact students in their courses by monday, march 23, to communicate plans about the remainder of the semester. because the shift to remote learning was sudden, we recognize that all arrangements may not be in place by this date, and encourage everyone to be patient and flexible as we all adapt to this unprecedented situation.

    2020欧洲杯首页particularly in classes whose instructional content requires face-to-face or hands-on elements, faculty may introduce substantially revised or modified assignments. no one is under any illusion that the transition to remote learning will be seamless or that classes will look anything like what they would in a face-to-face context. know that we are trying to prioritize learning as the goal for the remainder of the semester; we hope that you will approach this work with flexibility and a spirit of collaboration as we all try to work through this.

    We are treating the week of March 23 as a “soft roll out.”2020欧洲杯首页 Recognizing that both students and faculty are adapting to the new format for instruction and may be balancing many different complexities and stressors, faculty have been advised to keep the first week of instruction fairly simple. This will give everyone an opportunity to become accustomed to new tools and instructional modes, solve problems, and recalibrate expectations if needed.

    Modification of Pass/Fail Policies

    due to the implementation of remote instruction during the spring 2020 semester, suny geneseo has modified its policy on pass/fail grades. this temporary modification applies only to the spring 2020 semester. we hope that this change will alleviate some of the stress associated with the transition to remote learning and will accommodate students whose studies are disrupted by this situation.

    • The deadline for requesting Pass/Fail as a grading mode is extended to the end of the semester.
    • All courses elected in the P/F grading mode will count to satisfy any degree requirement: general education, courses for a major, courses for a minor courses for a concentration, etc.
    • Requests for the P/F grading mode during the spring 2020 semester are reversible, even after students receive their course grades.

    2020欧洲杯首页the deadline to request a reversal (change from p/f to normal grading or normal grading to p/f) is may 31, 2020. we will circulate information on how to access the pass/fail request form as soon as possible.

    The deadline to withdraw from courses has been extended to May 6, 2020.

    Communicating Concerns

    we understand that the first week or two of remote instruction may be challenging. for concerns specific to individual courses, we encourage you to reach out directly to your instructors.

    • Help with Canvas — there is a “Help” menu within Canvas. Through this option, students can contact their instructor, enter a ticket, or request live chat support.
    • General Technical Assistance – Students can visit the CIT online service desk at help.sc-wakaru.com/cit, contact the HelpDesk by calling (585) 245-5588, or request live chat support by visiting remotehelp.sc-wakaru.com/. For additional information on CIT Services, visit cit.sc-wakaru.com.

    in this quickly-changing situation, please be cognizant of the fact that faculty may not have full understanding of your unique circumstances. if you experience challenges relating to accessing technology or course materials, family obligations, personal health challenges (including mental health concerns), or any other issues that interfere with your studies, please communicate this to your faculty as soon as possible. everyone understands that this situation is stressful and complicated; the sooner you can communicate your needs to faculty, the more able they will be to assist you.

    2020欧洲杯首页on the other side, please also recognize that faculty may be facing similar challenges. during this crisis, faculty may be delayed in responding to emails, and may need to make additional modifications to accommodate family responsibilities or personal health issues. if we can all be patient, compassionate, and flexible, we’ll get through this together.

    Tutoring

    Geneseo intends to operate some core tutoring arrangements, but these services may be limited based on the availability of student tutors. The Writing Learning Center, the Math Learning Center, AOP tutoring, and some Supplemental Instruction sessions will be delivered in remote-accessible formats. These services will begin rolling out on a limited basis during the week of March 23 and we expect that regular service will resume during the week of March 30. Please check the Campus Learning Centers and Support Services2020欧洲杯首页 webpage for updates.

    2020欧洲杯首页additionally, the suny-wide star-ny system is available at no cost to geneseo students. all tutoring is done back and forth on an electronic whiteboard. tutoring is available in many subject areas during evening hours when other tutoring sites and services are closed. for more details, visit: . review the subject areas that have tutoring available and click on "request a tutor" to enter the online queue.

    Advisement

    registration holds for pre-graduation checks and mandatory academic advising will be ended for all students by monday, march 23, 2020. faculty advisors should continue to complete pre-grad checks and provide remote academic advising, but no student will be caught out because they cannot get their hold lifted. students will also be instructed to continue to complete academic advising and to use tools like degree works to ensure that they are on track.

    Correspondence with the Academic Planning and Advising office should be through dapa@sc-wakaru.com. DAPA is also monitoring phones through the voicemail system and inquiries receive responses within one business day. Appointments with members of the Academic Planning & Advising staff are still available remotely. Academic Peer Mentors will make appointments with students to assist with registration.

    we truly appreciate everything that members of the campus community are doing in the midst of this complex situation. the patience, flexibility, and empathy that students, faculty, and staff are bringing to this work as we make an abrupt transition amidst many external uncertainties. i hope that you will continue to care for yourselves and support members of your communities.

    be well.

    All my best,
    Stacey

    March 17: Urgent COVID-19 Update from President Battles

    Urgent COVID-19 Update from President Battles

    March 17 (Email from President Denise A. Battles)

    dear students,

    The safety and well-being of our college community continue to be our highest priority. Given the rapidly evolving circumstances related to the spread of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19), we are updating our prior guidance with important information for both on-campus and off-campus students. Specifically, the College has arranged for remote instruction to extend through the end of the academic year.

    On-Campus Students

    2020欧洲杯首页suny geneseo is strongly discouraging students from returning to campus after spring break, closing most campus facilities and requiring many employees to work from home.

    students who are currently staying on campus during spring break are expected to depart by 5 p.m., saturday march 21. students who have already left for spring break are expected not to return to campus for the balance of the semester.

    The College will still resume classes in remote-learning modalities beginning Monday, March 23. But as of today, we are strongly discouraging students who have somewhere else to go from returning to, or remaining on, campus after spring break. We will continue to provide campus housing and meals for students with special circumstances, such as qualifying international students and students who do not have other safe living and dining arrangements. Students who believe they have such extenuating circumstances should fill out the Remote Learning Stay Housing Application on your Symplicity Homepage. It will be listed on the front page under "contracts." The deadline to submit this application and be considered to remain on campus is Thursday, March 19 at 5 p.m.

    2020欧洲杯首页this direction supersedes prior guidance and includes students who previously planned to return after spring break.

    for students who will return in the fall, we intend to credit unused room and board fees for students who have returned home for the remainder of the semester. for students graduating in spring 2020 or summer 2020, refunds will be credited to their student account. we will provide more information as soon as it is available.

    We are developing a process for students to move out of residence halls in the manner safest to the campus community and will forward that information soon. Individuals should not initiate residence hall check-out until that official guidance is provided.

    Off-Campus Students

    we are strongly urging students residing off campus to follow the same departure directive in the best interest of your and others’ health and safety. as with on-campus students, we recognize that some off-campus students may have extenuating circumstances that impede their ability to return home. for those who are currently at their primary residence, please remain there.

    Additional Information for All Students

    2020欧洲杯首页we have ensured that all instruction for the remainder of the academic year will be transitioned to remote learning. students will not be able to access instructional spaces on campus, including labs and performance areas.

    2020欧洲杯首页student employees, with rare exceptions, will not be permitted to work on campus. they should reach out to supervisors for guidance.

    2020欧洲杯首页a decision on our commencement ceremony is still to be determined.

    2020欧洲杯首页thanks for your ongoing patience and support as we continue to resolve questions surrounding this rapidly changing situation.

    March 16: Message to Employees Regarding Essential Staff

    Message to Employees Regarding Essential Staff

    March 16 (Email from AVP for Human Resources Julie Briggs)

    dear geneseo employees:

    per governor cuomo’s declaration, beginning tuesday, march 17, non-essential employees shall work from home, to the extent they are able. employees will not be charged their accruals to fulfill this directive. non-essential employees must call their supervisor or a designated contact no later than one hour prior to their regular start time so any change in status can be communicated.

    2020欧洲杯首页as the operational needs of the response shifts, specific job functions or work locations may be modified accordingly. agencies and authorities may change an employee’s designation from either essential or non-essential at any time.

    2020欧洲杯首页all non-essential state employees will work from home under a new telecommuting pilot program designed to help limit the spread of covid-19. the program was created through agreements with csea, pef and uup, and also applies to m/c employees.

    2020欧洲杯首页essential employees are defined as those whose job function is essential to the effective operation of their agency or authority. the term also applies to employees who must be physically present to perform their job, and those who are involved in the covid-19 emergency response.

    non-essential employees are defined as those who do not need to be physically present to perform their jobs. the term also applies to employees who are not required to meet the core function and programs of their agency during this emergency response.

    supervisors will notify employees of their status (essential vs. non-essential) tomorrow, march 17. to facilitate this process, employees need to report to work tomorrow at their regularly scheduled time to discuss their status. employees designated as non-essential will have an opportunity tomorrow morning to outline their work plan for the telecommuting program, secure resources needed to work from home, and meet with their supervisors/colleagues. non-essential services employees will be released to return home at approximately 12:00 noon so they can begin the telecommuting program.

    All telecommuters excluding teaching faculty will be required to submit a work plan that includes hours worked and work completed. Employees must treat a telecommuting day as a regular workday in which the employee must maintain a regular work routine. The telecommuting work plan can be documented on the College’s Alternate Work Location Agreement form.

    Employees need to continue checking their Geneseo email accounts and the Geneseo webpage to stay current with College operations, employee communications, and other relevant information.

    i recognize that we are dealing with a very changeable, fast-moving situation that is producing a great deal of uncertainty and stress. i appreciate your ongoing understanding and cooperation in helping our entire campus move forward during this difficult time.

    March 14: Provost Message About Remote Instruction

    Provost Message About Remote Instruction

    March 14 (Email from Provost Stacey Robertson)

    dear students,

    this email is intended to update you on academic continuity plans when suny geneseo switches to remote instruction after spring break. although we know that you have many questions about developments over the past several days, this email is solely focused on plans for academic coursework. we understand that this situation is confusing and frustrating, and the college is working to provide you information as soon as possible. because this is an unprecedented situation that affects the entire suny system, a number of issues require external guidance. we will continue to provide more information as it is available to us. we apologize for the length of this email, but it has important information to assist you!

    2020欧洲杯首页 this email outlines our current state of implementation in several core areas. please watch for a follow-up communication from this office by the middle of next week.

    Personal Well-Being

    2020欧洲杯首页we understand that this situation will be stressful for all members of the campus community and that the shift to remote learning may intersect with other challenges and concerns. we want to stress flexibility, compassion, and collaboration as we move through this process. above all, we want you to take care of your personal health and well-being.

    Counseling Services will be outreaching to all students who currently have scheduled appointments next week to determine whether they will be in the area/on campus and will keep their appointments. Students with previously scheduled appointments who are not able to attend should go to myhealth.sc-wakaru.com2020欧洲杯首页 to cancel.

    2020欧洲杯首页 the department of student health and counseling also has several online resources that students may wish to consult:

    Remote Delivery of Coursework

    suny geneseo is following governor cuomo’s direction to limit density on campus. this means that all courses, including lab, studio, and performance courses will immediately transition to alternative delivery (not face-to-face) formats. even if you are on campus, you should plan to access your courses through the remote delivery format established by your instructors.

    2020欧洲杯首页 we are expecting that faculty will begin remote instruction during the week of march 23. you should monitor emails and canvas closely as your faculty will reach out with specific instructions about their courses. faculty are developing their alternate delivery plans using tools that best support their particular learning objectives, so there will not be a one-size-fits-all approach. we also know that some types of educational experiences will be challenging to convert to remote delivery. however, please be aware that we will be working with faculty during the next week to find solutions to ensure that the continuity of your academic programs, regardless of discipline, will be maintained.

    Support for Remote Learning

    we know that many of you have never experienced remote learning before and that there may be a period of adjustment as faculty set up courses and you begin to transition to this new delivery format. there may be unexpected snags, especially during the first week of remote instruction. we ask that you be patient during this transition period and reach out directly to your faculty if you have issues with access.

    CIT is developing a range of supports for students, including the Remote Learning Student Resources2020欧洲杯首页 webpage, which provides information on common approaches to remote learning. Please bookmark this page, as resources are being updated regularly. Information on additional support resources will be circulated next week.

    Tutoring

    college-wide tutoring, including the writing learning center, the math learning center, aop tutoring, and some supplemental instruction will be maintained during the period of remote learning. like other instructional activities, these services will be offered remotely and we will share information about scheduling appointments. although we will do our best to maintain tutoring services, please note that because geneseo’s tutoring programs rely heavily on student employees whose availability may be limited during the period of remote instruction, most tutoring will be conducted by appointment only and some si services may not be available or will be limited. all geneseo students also have access to , an online, interactive tutoring service in many subject areas (available sunday–thursday, 7 p.m. to midnight).

    Accommodations

    The Office of Accessibility Services will continue to provide support to students with accommodations and faculty have been asked to design their remote delivery plans in ways that are accessible to all students. Most accommodations that are available in face-to-face instruction will continue during the period of remote instruction. Staff in the Office of Accessibility Services and the Testing Center will operate during normal business hours, Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.–4:15 p.m. Students taking online exams may continue to make Testing Center appointments (please watch for direct communication from Dr. Amy Fisk, Assistant Dean for Accessibility).

    Advisement and Registration

    Advisement and registration will continue as scheduled. The course schedule for summer and fall 2020 is currently available. Advisement appointments and removal of advisement holds will be conducted remotely. Most advisors are reaching out to students to set up meeting times, but if you have not heard from your advisor about scheduling a remote appointment, contact them directly. Students are encouraged to monitor their academic progress through DegreeWorks in making decisions about future classes. Students who need to change their majors before the March 23 deadline should contact the Office of the Dean for Planning and Advisement at 585-245-5541.

    Library Services

    During the period of remote instruction, digital services through Milne Library will be maintained. Access to digital journals and databases, research guides, and other online services will continue. Research and reference librarians will also be available for remote consultation. Additional information on remote consultation will be circulated next week. Students can email LibraryHelp@sc-wakaru.com2020欧洲杯首页 with library-related questions.

    2020欧洲杯首页thank you so much for your patience as we transition to remote learning. we are grateful for the amazing community of support we have here at geneseo!

    All my best,
    Stacey

    Can students still register to stay on campus during spring break?

    students have until friday, march 13 at noon to submit a registration to stay on campus for spring break. they must either contact their residence director or area coordinator or email with their name, residence hall, and room number indicating their desire to stay.

    Can residential students return to campus as needed to retrieve belongings?

    yes. the campus including residence halls remain open.

    Will in-person classes resume this semester or not?

    2020欧洲杯首页as of now, remote learning will take place until further notice. we will continue to monitor this rapidly evolving situation and will be guided in our decision-making by health and safety considerations.

    What financial considerations will be extended to students due to the implementation of remote learning?

    Is Commencement canceled?

    2020欧洲杯首页geneseo’s decision-making will be informed by health and safety considerations. we will communicate when more information becomes available.

    we understand there are far more questions than answers about this rapidly developing situation. as always, health and safety considerations guide our decision-making. i am deeply grateful for the collaboration, flexibility, and spirit of goodwill that have been exhibited in abundance across campus. i will continue to keep you updated as more information becomes available.

    March 9: Email from Dean of Students

    March 9, 2020 Email from Dean of Students

    2020欧洲杯首页dear students,

    rumors are starting to circulate about what the spread of coronavirus disease (covid-19) will mean for classes and activities on the geneseo campus for spring break and the remainder of the semester. as of today (march 9, 2020), here is the update:

    Campus Operations

    classes and activities on the geneseo campus will continue as scheduled both before and after spring break unless we notify you otherwise. should future developments impact on-campus instruction, the division of academic affairs is working to ensure the continuity of academic programs and will provide as much advance notice as possible on what that will entail.

    Spring Break

    If you live on campus and are concerned about traveling to an area with known active COVID-19 cases, you may stay on campus over spring break. If you are interested in this option, contact your residence director or area coordinator. You also may email reslife@sc-wakaru.com with your name, residence hall, and room number indicating your desire to stay. Note that food service during break is very limited and bus service to Wegmans also is suspended during the break.

    2020欧洲杯首页many of you may be returning to hometown areas where covid-19 cases are increasing or traveling domestically or internationally to impacted areas via airports or other crowded venues. if so, you may want to take extra clothing or supplies (including medications) home over the break in case your return to campus is delayed. in addition, taking coursework materials such as laptops, books, etc., may be wise. those with an assistance or an emotional support animal also must take the animal with them.

    2020欧洲杯首页as i stated in a recent message, we are asking that you reconsider any international travel or any unnecessary travel or attendance at large public gatherings. it is strongly advised that students with chronic medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, and other diseases, and those on immunosuppressive medications, seek guidance from their primary care providers and/or specialists before deciding to travel.

    Protecting Yourself

    2020欧洲杯首页i would ask that you review these from the cdc. washing your hands often and thoroughly is at the top of the list, but all the recommendations are important and can be useful in avoiding the virus.

    let me know if you have questions. this is a rapidly changing situation and we’re receiving guidance from suny, so the direction we take also could change accordingly. i will notify you as soon as possible with any new information.

    SUNY Study Abroad Programs Suspended in Five Countries

    at a coronavirus briefing on march 4, governor cuomo announced that suny study abroad programs in the highest impacted countries (china, italy, japan, iran, south korea) will be suspended effective immediately.

    suny is arranging the immediate return travel for approximately 300 students, 10 of whom are geneseo students (nine in italy, one in japan). individuals returning from impacted countries will fly into new york stewart international airport and begin a 14-day quarantine at their home or at designated suny dormitories (locations to be determined) under strict doh guidelines. campus-sponsored travel outside the u.s. for suny, as well as all new york state sponsored travel, is canceled for spring semester to impacted countries.

    following governor cuomo's announcement, the suny geneseo study abroad office is working to coordinate the return of geneseo students involved in those programs and provide alternatives for them to complete their spring 2020 course credits.

    Message from the SUNY Geneseo Study Abroad Office

    The safety of SUNY Geneseo students is our highest priority, and all our decisions about program suspensions will reflect that commitment to student safety.

    We know that COVID-19 (coronavirus) and related travel restrictions are causing anxiety among some of our students and stakeholders. We have been in contact with all study abroad program participants to ensure they are informed of the latest risks for the virus and how they can best protect themselves.

    We are tracking the issue closely and are keeping study abroad students swiftly informed of any program changes we must make to ensure the safety of our students, staff, and host communities.

    Planning for the Fall 2020 Semester

    Updated June 23 

    Please see the June 20 email from President Denise A. Battles (below) for the latest information.

    dear members of our campus community,

    i greatly appreciate your patience as we at suny geneseo work to refine our fall return-to-campus plans in response to the covid-19 pandemic. while those plans are not final, as they are subject to approval by the suny system in accordance with guidelines that are emerging from new york state, i write to share an update arising from recent engagement with key campus stakeholders.

    With the hope and expectation that our community will be back on campus this fall, we have developed a proposed Fall 2020 calendar. Understanding that COVID-19 is volatile and easily spread, we created a calendar that promotes health and safety. An overarching aim is to ensure the continued delivery of the high-quality academic and co-curricular experience for which SUNY Geneseo is renowned.

    Our proposed calendar affirms our normal fall semester start and end dates (Aug. 31 - Dec. 22) but repurposes our traditional fall break into two rejuvenation days2020欧洲杯首页: the first at four weeks and the second at eight weeks. A formal break for the Thanksgiving holiday falls at the end of week twelve with classes resuming Nov. 30 and continuing until the end of the semester. The rejuvenation days are designed to create time and space for reflection and recuperation for the entire campus. They, along with the Thanksgiving break, are also useful as potential pivot points in case of a reemergence of COVID-19. Faculty have been encouraged to develop syllabi that have a modular approach attuned to these four-week pivots, while avoiding the assignment of large projects or exams immediately around these days.

    Our planning for instruction includes a blend of face-to-face, hybrid, and online classes2020欧洲杯首页. The Dean of Academic Planning Office along with advisors and peer mentors will work carefully with students to ensure class schedules reflect individual needs.

    this amended calendar emerged out of a multitude of conversations with participants including the college’s academic experience planning team, college senate, united university professions (uup) leaders, student association, faculty, chairs, and deans. thanks to thoughtful input from these stakeholders, the original draft of the calendar experienced several iterations, including specific modifications that addressed considerations of diversity and pedagogy. the final draft, which we summarize here today, has been endorsed by the faculty senate and the cabinet.

    please know that the plans we are developing are comprehensive, addressing essential considerations including health and safety protocols, in keeping with guidance from the suny system, state, and centers for disease control and prevention (cdc) as well as local health department officials. i am proud of the thoughtful and thorough efforts by colleagues across the campus.

    the persistent uncertainty of the situation is challenging and we are planning in a very dynamic context as we await additional information and guidance from state, federal, and system authorities. at the same time, we want to keep faculty, staff, students and families as informed as possible. we assure you that we will share additional information as it becomes available. in the meantime, we will continue to advance planning that prioritizes the health and safety of our community members.

    sincerely,

    denise a. battles, president

    Are there any changes to SUNY Geneseo campus operations?

    Campus Operations

    Updated June 9

    instruction for suny geneseo undergraduate and graduate students took place through remote learning from march 23, 2020 through the end of spring 2020. the college strongly discouraged students from residing on campus during the remote learning period, closed most campus facilities, and required many employees to work from home. 

    Events

    all on-campus events and activities were canceled or postponed through the end of the spring 2020 semester.

    Commencement 2020 Update

    (Excerpt from April 27 email sent by President Denise A. Battles)

    "a group of students, staff, and administrators has been intently considering alternatives for an in-person commencement to provide a ceremony that you deserve. i write to advise you that we have decided that rescheduling the celebration for may 2021 is the safest option. we are planning for the ceremony to take place during the 2021 commencement weekend. it will not be combined with the class of 2021 commencement on may 22 but will be a separate event with all of the traditional celebratory moments and recognitions for the class of 2020. we will notify you when we have the date and other details finalized.

    we hoped to schedule your commencement sooner, but limitations in bringing together more than 5,000 people, seasonal weather risks, uncertainties on the availability of appropriate ceremony venues, and other circumstances all regrettably pointed to next year as the responsible choice. survey responses from more than 500 graduating students helped inform our decision." 

    College Employees - Remote Work

    (June 9 email from Assistant Vice President for Human Resources Julie Briggs)

    2020欧洲杯首页dear geneseo employees:

    I am writing to inform you that the College is extending telecommuting for an additional three week period through July 3rd for those employees who have agreements on file with Human Resources.

    the college will continue to work on return-to-campus procedures and guidelines in alignment with the .

    2020欧洲杯首页as a reminder employees who perform essential services and who are authorized to work on campus must follow social distancing protocols including, but not limited to:

    that covers the nose and mouth when in close proximity (less than six feet) with others, or in a public place.

    Planning for the Fall Semester

    (Excerpt from June 20 email sent by President Denise A. Battles)

    2020欧洲杯首页"while those plans are not final, as they are subject to approval by the suny system in accordance with guidelines that are emerging from new york state, i write to share an update arising from recent engagement with key campus stakeholders.

    With the hope and expectation that our community will be back on campus this fall, we have developed a proposed Fall 2020 calendar. Understanding that COVID-19 is volatile and easily spread, we created a calendar that promotes health and safety. An overarching aim is to ensure the continued delivery of the high-quality academic and co-curricular experience for which SUNY Geneseo is renowned.

    Our proposed calendar affirms our normal fall semester start and end dates (Aug. 31 - Dec. 22) but repurposes our traditional fall break into two rejuvenation days: the first at four weeks and the second at eight weeks. A formal break for the Thanksgiving holiday falls at the end of week twelve with classes resuming Nov. 30 and continuing until the end of the semester. The rejuvenation days are designed to create time and space for reflection and recuperation for the entire campus. They, along with the Thanksgiving break, are also useful as potential pivot points in case of a reemergence of COVID-19. Faculty have been encouraged to develop syllabi that have a modular approach attuned to these four-week pivots, while avoiding the assignment of large projects or exams immediately around these days.

    Our planning for instruction includes a blend of face-to-face, hybrid, and online classes. The Dean of Academic Planning Office along with advisors and peer mentors will work carefully with students to ensure class schedules reflect individual needs."

    What's happening with Commencement 2020?

    Commencement 2020 Ceremony Update

    April 27 (Email from President Denise A. Battles)

    dear class of 2020,

    2020欧洲杯首页i can only imagine the letdown you are feeling from the postponement of your commencement due to the covid-19 pandemic. all of us at geneseo share in that disappointment. commencement is something we deeply cherish as the crowning event of the academic year, and it was with tremendous sadness that we made the painful but necessary decision to postpone. 

    a group of students, staff, and administrators has been intently considering alternatives for an in-person commencement to provide a ceremony that you deserve. i write to advise you that we have decided that rescheduling the celebration for may 2021 is the safest option. we are planning for the ceremony to take place during the 2021 commencement weekend. it will not be combined with the class of 2021 commencement on may 22 but will be a separate event with all of the traditional celebratory moments and recognitions for the class of 2020. we will notify you when we have the date and other details finalized.

    2020欧洲杯首页we hoped to schedule your commencement sooner, but limitations in bringing together more than 5,000 people, seasonal weather risks, uncertainties on the availability of appropriate ceremony venues, and other circumstances all regrettably pointed to next year as the responsible choice. survey responses from more than 500 graduating students helped inform our decision.

    We will provide you and your family the commencement next May that you expect and have earned. In the meantime, it’s my hope that you, your family, and friends participate in the virtual Senior Send-Off2020欧洲杯首页 on May 16 to celebrate your considerable accomplishments at Geneseo. Please accept my congratulations on behalf of all of us at Geneseo; we are proud of your resilience and success.

    2020欧洲杯首页thank you, and please continue to stay safe.

    sincerely,

    Denise A. Battles

    What do I do if I suspect I have COVID-19?

    Employees: What do I do if I suspect I have COVID-19?

    please seek immediate medical attention from your healthcare provider. in addition, please see the protocols below.

    April 6 (Email from Assistant Vice President for Human Resources Julie Briggs)

    2020欧洲杯首页this is a reminder of the protocols set forth for employees who report symptoms of illness associated with the covid-19 virus.

    Any symptomatic employee should not report to work2020欧洲杯首页. As the number of suspected and confirmed cases of COVID-19 increases, all New York State employees must monitor themselves for possible symptoms, such as: fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste/smell, chills, body aches, etc.

    Any employee experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19 shall immediately report symptoms to their supervisor and also to the campus human resources (HR) office using the employeecovid-19@sc-wakaru.com email account. This email account is set up specifically to notify Human Resources about employees experiencing symptoms defined above.

    These protocols ARE applicable to employees working remotely.

    2020欧洲杯首页the supervisor and assistant vice president for human resources or her designee will immediately direct the employee to leave work, if they are currently at work, or stay home, if they are not at work, and self-quarantine as a precaution.

    2020欧洲杯首页if the employee is experiencing severe symptoms and requires urgent medical attention, the supervisor should call 911 and notify the dispatcher that the distressed employee may have covid-19 symptoms, so that emergency medical service responders may use appropriate precautions.

    the supervisor shall request and record the latest contact information for the employee, including home or mobile telephone numbers, so that hr personnel or designee can reach them for follow up information.

    2020欧洲杯首页the assistant vice president for human resources or her designee will deploy facility maintenance personnel to clean and disinfect the suspected employee’s work area, including their desk, chair, telephone, desktop and computer equipment. facility maintenance staff should also clean the nearby common areas, including but not limited to door handles/push plates, light switches, elevator buttons, door 2 handles/push plates, break room tables and chairs, as well as kitchen and restroom faucets. additional cleaning guidance can be found on the .

    2020欧洲杯首页the assistant vice president for human resources or her designee will remotely contact the employee via their contact information to:

    1. Inquire about current symptoms,
    2. Verify that they have precautionarily quarantined, and
    3. Direct the employee to call a health care provider and seek testing. The employee should first contact their primary health care practitioner to see if they are available and able to collect a sample for testing. If not, the employee should contact the New York State COVID19 hotline at 1-888-364-3065 to be referred to a regional testing site that can collect and submit a sample for testing. The employee must notify HR of the test results as soon as they are received. Test results will be verified by the New York State Department of Health (DOH).

    2020欧洲杯首页the assistant vice president for human resources or her designee will also ask the employee about their potential contact and interactions with other employees at the campus. people who have been in close contact with a symptomatic employee are at a greater risk of contracting covid-19, if the employee tests positive. as a precaution while the employee awaits test results, human resources – in consultation with doh – will identify the employees who may have been in close, sustained contact with the employee after they became ill.

    2020欧洲杯首页those with close professional contacts will be notified by human resources or designee about their potential exposure and directed to self-quarantine. professional contacts shall remain quarantined until the symptomatic employee’s test results are received, and human resources provides further notice. (see “guidance on the contacts of a close or proximate contact of a confirmed or suspected case of covid-19” on the .)

    The Assistant Vice President for Human Resources or her designee will provide information on both the suspected employee and potential professional contacts to the Governor’s Office of Employee Relations (GOER) and DOH. DOH can be reached at 1-833-797-49682020欧洲杯首页 and will contact the employee to verify and complete contact tracing and notify the employee’s local health department.

    if the test result is positive, the local health department may issue a mandatory quarantine and conduct additional tracing of the employee’s personal contacts (e.g. family). if the test results for the employee are positive (+), assistant vice president for human resources or her designee will immediately direct the employee to maintain their quarantine for fourteen (14) days and advise the professional contacts to maintain their quarantine and, if they become symptomatic, seek testing from their health care provider. hr will also notify the supervisor of the positive test result and send a notice to all employees who work within the nearby work location.

    if the test results for the employee are negative (-), assistant vice president for human resources or her designee will promptly direct the employee to return to work after they have recovered from their illness and direct the professional contacts under quarantine to resume their daily activities and return to work.

    2020欧洲杯首页employees should contact their supervisor or the human resources office with questions or concerns. college personnel shall uphold the privacy of information shared by employees, in accordance with state and federal law.
