Updates from Department Chair

 

03.25.2020 Another intense week went by and overall our department, including faculty and students, made a successful transition to online instruction. I am thanking our office staff and technical support staff for helping out and making it possible to move online geology labs, GIS courses, and our general courses that range from a couple of dozen to a couple of hundred students. I am also thanking our instructors for their generous sharing of online teaching tips and supporting students. While our first efforts seem to be successful, there will be other challenges ahead for both faculty and students and I am hoping that with your dedication and solidarity we will be able to handle them too.
