As Clark College prepares for this fall term, the Return to Campus Task Force sent out a survey requesting feedback from students on how the school should provide support services during the fall quarter. Student responses are due by May 3.
Clark will review student responses from the survey to determine how support services will be offered. This survey will affect services such as the library, tutoring and career services, student health, counseling services, and more.
Currently, Clark offers approximately 160 to 170 classes per quarter with some face-to-face elements. According to Interim Vice President of Instruction Dr. Genevieve Howard, this number is expected to increase to an estimated 400 classes beginning fall term. 25% of Clark’s offerings in fall will have a hybrid component she said.
“We don’t know what everyone’s comfort level is at,” Howard said. “So we want to make sure we are accommodating all of our students.”
Students can also be assured that Clark will still follow CDC and Washington state guidelines for their reopening plan. Practices like wearing masks, social distancing and regular sanitation will be upheld.
“We really want to look at what your expectations are,” Dr. Michele Cruse, interim vice president of student affairs, said. “It’s going to be a different normal. We really want to determine what student’s expectations for support and services look like, including our courses.”
This quick survey is only four questions long. If you have not done so, complete it by May 3. The survey is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Return-to-campus-Clark
