Communication from President Andrew Rehfeld, Ph.D.: Closure of All Campuses and All Classes by Zoom
March 15, 2020
Dear HUC Faculty, Students, and Staff,
We hope that you and your loved ones are well during this first difficult weekend of what appears to be an indefinite period of isolation and great personal and societal challenges. We are reaching out to you to remind you that your health and wellbeing are our priority, and that we are here for you and ready to support you during these difficult days ahead.
Despite the imposition of physical isolation for individual and communal safety, we nonetheless remain united in spirit as one community. That unity of mission and shared spirit are sources of strength that will help all of us get through the coming weeks.
With your safety top of mind, we are following the best practices mandated by local health authorities to limit the COVID-19 spread, with some new arrangements as of today:
In order to ensure that you are fully informed on an ongoing basis, please be sure to be attentive to RAVE alerts, emails to your huc.edu email, and check daily updates on HUC’s special website at http://huc.edu/COVID19.
Later this week, we will gather as one community for our first weekly Town Hall for all faculty, students, and staff. Please look out for the RAVE alert, email, and our website for details.
Thank you for everything you are doing to sustain your own health, the wellbeing of your families, and the welfare of your communities. Our tradition teaches us to embrace resilience in the face of adversity, strengthened by each other, we will get through this together.
With best wishes for your health and safety,
Andrew Rehfeld, Ph.D.President
