A message to the campus community from LaSalle College Vancouver's President, Dr. Jason Dewling:
We trust you are adapting to our new reality and making the best of a difficult situation. We have been busy planning for your return to the campus and are following the guidance from provincial health authorities as we make those plans. As the provincial health agency has started to lift measures around the province it is important that we update you on what the next steps look like for LaSalle College Vancouver. Our approach will allow us to deliver high-quality teaching and learning – while ensuring the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff. It is based on the guidelines and direction of the Provincial Health Officer, public health agencies, and the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills and Training. These include:
- Building is open for limited “hands on” classes only for duration of classes.
- Physical distancing will be practiced and class size limited.
- Classes may also be live-streamed or recorded.
- Timetables will be staggered.
- Employees will continue working from home, see note below on building access for staff**.
- All other classes will be offered remotely.
**Building access for staff – Effective September 1st staff will have the option of working from home or working on campus.
Will my classes be on campus for the Fall 2020 quarter (Phase 2)?
Program Directors will be reaching out to students whose classes will be held on campus for the Fall quarter. If you have questions about your classes, please reach out to your Program Director directly.
The next phase will happen as dictated by our provincial health authority and may commence in the Winter 2021 quarter.
The final phase will begin once a vaccine is in place and the pandemic has subsided.Phase 4
*Please note that if we have a significant second wave, we may have to move back in these phases rather than forward.
Thank you for adapting to this situation with us. We all long for the day when we can engage with other face to face on a more regular basis.
