Plans for Fall 2020

Title : Plans for Fall 2020
Posting Date / Time : May 5, 2020, 17:00 PM

Dear Students

I know many of you are getting ready for final projects and final exams. Hang in there, you’re almost to the end of the semester. You’ve got this!  

Even as we move through the last week of classes for this semester, please let me update you on plans for fall 2020. We remain committed to teaching and learning in classrooms, and on campus, when the fall 2020 semester begins.

Many of you have told me it is the feeling of belonging, and of being in community, that first led you to explore becoming a student here. As President Gevelinger said in reaching this decision, "Our students, faculty, and staff have shown themselves to be creative and resilient in the face of this disruption But ‘at the heart of ministry is relationship,’ and those relationships are best formed and nurtured when we are together.”

You can be sure that, as is true with every semester, the health and the safety of our students and our entire community is the highest priority. That will of course be the case in August. We expect to welcome incoming freshmen to the residence halls on Sunday, August 16, 2020. And we expect classes to get underway on Wednesday, August 19 - on campus.  

We continue to heed the recommendations of the CDC, and follow the direction of our elected officials. While there is much that feels out of our hands during these days, we are taking steps to do everything we can to allow for your safe return to living and learning on campus this fall.

As you are aware, we'll have a new president at that time. While Dr. Andrew Manion’s official start date is June 1, he is already at work leading a task force to develop specific plans and contingencies for the fall semester at Edgewood College. 

All my best for a strong finish to a challenging semester, and be well!

As always, please reach out to or 608-663-2212 if you have further questions.

We Are Here For You

On March 23, 2020, Edgewood College moved all classes fully online for the remainder of the Spring Semester. While teaching and learning may feel different this spring,  what has not changed is our commitment to our students, to our shared community, and to each other. While we (like many of us) are today in an online learning environment, we are first and foremost a community. Faculty and staff have produced a video that reminds students, and reminds all who are touched by this community, that “we are here for you.”
