Health and Hygiene Practices
Re-entry Updates 7-17-20
God is at work at Heritage Christian University! We finished the 2019-20 fiscal year with positive assets. We had over 200 people in classes this summer, with over 50 of those being credit students. We have an amazing new classroom renovation that will be such a blessing to our students and teachers. This is coupled with major renovations in several offices, the McCreary cabins, and other places on campus. As of right now, our application and enrollment numbers look good for the fall. We have made four new hires that will enrich our efforts to fulfill the HCU mission. All this happened during a major time of transition in personnel on campus and a worldwide pandemic. It happened because of the work you are doing and ultimately because we serve an awesome God!
Out of an abundance of caution and based on public health concerns, we will move to distance learning instruction exclusively beginning on Monday, March 16 and continuing through the end of the Spring 2020 semester.
All Kerr Hall resident students should make plans to move out by March 15 at 10:00 PM. Students may not return to campus until classroom instruction resumes.
Employees will continue to work on campus until otherwise notified. In some cases, remote work and “social distancing” may be appropriate. We are taking these precautions out of care and concern for the HCU community.
Other university actions:
- University events are postponed or canceled until further notice to help prevent the potential spread of the virus. This includes the HCLI Church Leadership Workshop (canceled), HCU Benefit Dinner in Winfield, and others. Contact Marketing and Events for details or questions.
- All international and non-essential domestic travel on HCU business or with HCU programs, for HCU faculty, staff, and students is suspended.
- Decisions have not yet been made on the golf tournament or the timing of spring commencement.
- Campus access will be limited to faculty, staff, and their immediate families until April 4, 2020. A decision on whether to extend that date later into the semester will be made at a later time. Exceptions will be addressed on a case-by-case basis.
