As part of our preparation, UNILAK has organized a task force representing academics,
student affairs, and campus operations. All work undertaken by this task force has been
informed by the UNILAK senior management.
The following principles will guide our efforts:
- We will fulfill our mission and meet the UNILAK standard of quality education.
- The health and safety of the UNILAK community is paramount.
- We will respond with commitment and flexibility in the face of complication.
Detailed in this statement are critical elements of UNILAK’s comprehensive reopening plan. This information will continue to evolve, so we ask that you follow our communications detailed on our dedicated website and remain flexible to changes as needed. We look forward to sharing the full details of the reopening as they are finalized.
The task force has developed a comprehensive plan to continue to deliver UNILAK’s high-quality academic offerings in a manner that places community safety at the forefront. After careful consideration for student health and the safety of the UNILAK community, a modified schedule has been established. This will start by a timetable which allow to group students in small groups by respecting a social distancing of 2m. We will also emphasize on the use of blended mode of teaching which will reduce the time students spend as they are traveling in the campus and this will reduce the risks of contamination which discourages travel, again minimizing the risk of exposure to the virus. Additional measures to protect the UNILAK community are listed below, and further details will be forthcoming.
