Reaction to Fall 2020 Online Delivery Announcement
Winnipeg, MB – On May 20th, Red River College announced its plans to continue remote delivery of all possible programs and services for the 2020 Fall Term. The decision was made following public health directives to ensure the health and safety of staff and students.
Similar decisions have been made by post-secondary institutions across Canada, and the College is also planning for an early return of the students in limited numbers in case the public health directives change.
Red River College Students’ Association (RRCSA) fully supports the College’s decision to protect the health and safety of staff and students and recognizes that many students will be affected by this change. RRCSA is working alongside the College to find ways to address this and meet student needs and industry requirements.
RRC students are adaptable and resilient, and we are optimistic that we will come out of this stronger. This pandemic has shown us new ways to stay connected while we work and learn from home. Many students already spend time online, and distance learning will be an addition to that for the next while. However, we do look forward to the time when students and staff can be back on campus and back in the classroom where we can once again be the vibrant in-person community we know and love.
RRCSA’s goal is to work together to ensure a positive and strong outcome for new and returning students this fall. Education will play a key role in recovering the economy as we emerge from COVID-19 and supporting RRC students through this transition is just the first step.
