Fall Update and Governor Murphy’s latest executive order/August 17, 2020 Message


Dear Students,

We anxiously await the beginning of the fall semester in several weeks and assure you that we’ve been busily preparing for you to pursue your educational goals in a safe academically-sound environment.  Over the summer, our faculty have enhanced their course materials and remote teaching techniques. Our student services and academic support staff have been working nonstop to ensure that our students have the resources necessary to achieve your goals.  Additionally, our COVID Response Team has diligently developed and implemented an extensive safety plan as directed by Governor Murphy.

You may have heard that Governor Murphy issued Executive Order 175 on August 12, 2020.  This executive order supersedes his previous executive orders that closed public and private schools, including colleges and universities.  Executive Order 175 essentially permits schools and colleges to re-open and offer in-person experiences that comply with safe re-opening plans.

As I have previously communicated, Brookdale’s safe re-opening plan has been fully vetted by our College community and the Office of the Secretary of Higher Education.  Accordingly, we will continue to operate primarily remotely in Fall 2020, offering a full range of online, remote-live, and hybrid classes.  Brookdale’s online and remote instruction has a very strong reputation, largely due to our exceptional faculty and staff, as well as the support of our stellar Teaching & Learning Center.  When you view your schedule online in WebAdvisor (or search for classes if you have not yet registered), the specific type of course, and meeting day/time requirements are listed in the “Meeting Information” column:

  • Courses designated as “Online – Remote Live Classes” will include specific days and times you will be expected to log in and meet with your class online.
  • Courses designated as “Online -Fully Online” do not have a day/time meeting requirement.  These courses will require that you log into Canvas on the first day of the semester and review the expectations of your professor, including dates and times when course work must be completed.
  • Sections designated as “Online – Remote Hybrid” will include a mix of specific log in times in which you will meet with your class, and independent or smaller group work. Your instructor will provide further information on the first day of classes.

A very limited number of in-person classes are scheduled in subject areas that cannot be completed online, such as Culinary Arts and Automotive Technology.  For these programs, access to buildings and facilities will continue to be limited.  Only authorized students, employees, and visitors will be permitted to access our buildings in order to maximize a safe environment.  Our extensive protocols for in-person classes will follow CDC guidance and State Department of Health requirements such as socially distanced seating, face covering requirements, and frequent cleaning of high touch surfaces.  These protocols are explained in our limited reopening plan which remains in effect.  I urge you to review this plan again, as well as the resources listed below.

For additional information related to COVID-19:

  • Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website at www.cdc.gov for information related to prevention efforts, hand washing and hygiene, face coverings, symptoms, quarantine, testing, etc. The CDC site also contains videos on a broad range of topics.
  • Visit our CDC videos page to view a selection of videos and search the CDC site for additional topics and videos.
  • Visit the New Jersey COVID-19 Information Hub, www.covid19.nj.gov for information on several topics, including states on New Jersey’s travel advisory list due to higher rates of transmission. Travelers returning from the affected states are advised to quarantine for 14 days.

Please email covidquestions@brookdalecc.edu if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you for your ongoing patience and cooperation in ensuring the safety and well-being of all our community members.

David Stout, Ph.D.
President
Brookdale Community College
