The following message was sent to all UBalt students from Nicole Marano, associate vice president for Student Success & Support Services, on January 29, 2021:
Greetings from the Division of Student Success & Support Services! As you are aware, UBalt is OPEN and operating in a virtual environment. So, what does this mean for you?
First, it means that your health and safety are UBalt's top priorities!
Second, it means your classes will be delivered online. You should connect with your instructors early and often when you have questions about your syllabi, coursework, or class expectations.
Third, it means that we will be offering student services, events, and student organizations all online as well. If you are interested in or need to connect with the Bob Parsons Veterans Center to inquire about your military benefits; the Career & Internship Center to meet with your assigned career coach or to attend a career fair; or the Rosenberg Center for Student Engagement & Inclusion to check out an awesome student organization or event - WE ARE HERE! We are open and want to engage with you!
In light of the current public health crisis, student events, activities, and student organization meetings and events will take place virtually this semester. In-person on-campus and off-campus student-sponsored or student-facing events (including conferences, trips, or off-campus gatherings) will not be permitted. However, while these restrictions are in place, UBalt will have many great opportunities for you to engage virtually! We will re-assess the public health situation after spring break to determine if any changes should be made regarding this decision.
Although the Campus Pantry is not operating this semester, our Division is partnering with off-campus organizations and the SGA to promote food pick up locations, COVID 19 testing locations, and other helpful resources. We will continue to message these opportunities via social media, UBalt's COVID 19 website, and email. Please be on the lookout for these communications.
UBalt is a community that is here for you. We are truly excited that you are a part of our institution and are here to support you and your success! UBalt IS BUILT FOR THIS!
Best wishes for a successful semester,
Nicole C. Marano
Associate Vice President for Student Success & Support Services
