A Message to Students from Dean Webster

A Message to Students from Dean Webster
Dean Jeremy Webster

Dear Ohio University Zanesville students,

My thoughts are with you as we face unprecedented changes to our daily lives in the face of the ever-changing impact of the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19). I understand that these last couple of weeks have probably been stressful and challenging for you. Please know that your professors, campus leadership, and staff are working diligently to provide virtual courses and services to help you attain your educational goals. We have numerous resources to share with you via our website, social media, and email. With the ever-changing situation that we are facing, I encourage you to check your email frequently for information from your professors, our campus, and the University. We are here for you, and I encourage you to reach out to us with any questions or concerns. I’ve included contact information below.

It is crucial that we follow the recommendations of health officials to keep our students, faculty, staff, and community members safe. Circumstances are changing daily, and I encourage you to keep checking for updates by visiting www.ohio.edu/coronavirus for the latest news and information from the University and www.ohio.edu/zanesville/coronavirus for information specific to our campus.

I’m extremely proud that our students, faculty, and staff have stepped up to do all we can to move forward with a successful semester. While it’s unfortunate that this pandemic has forced us to replace in-person educational opportunities with remote ones, it is important that we all remain as safe and healthy as possible. Those of you who intend to graduate this semester might have seen that President N. Duane Nellis has announced that commencement celebrations will take place once it is safe for us to hold them.

As we prepare to restart spring semester classes, I encourage you to be mindful that this is a transition for all of us. Patience and compassion are vital as we adapt to this new approach and our faculty and staff will also be extending their patience and compassion to you. If you have not been contacted by your instructors concerning resuming your spring classes, please let our Associate Dean, Dr. Hannah Nissen know by Wednesday, March 25. Her email address is nissen@ohio.edu.

I believe that our campus community will come together and support each other for a successful end to this semester. Stay safe and keep connected. #bobcatstrong
