In addition to online teaching, other forms of instruction continue. EACC is engaging in creative ways to deliver instruction to every student.
EACC's Commencement ceremony and activities scheduled for May 8th have been postponed. "It is disappointing, but concern for the health of our students, their families, and our faculty and staff means we must postpone commencement," said Dr. Cline. "It is clear that a large crowd will not be allowed to gather in May, and we appreciate everyone's patience while we explore options. Details will follow when finalized," she added.
Application deadlines for the practical nursing, registered nursing, rad tech, and paramedic programs have been extended. For more information, email Lhutcherson@eacc.edu or call 870-633-4480, ext. 408.
EACC has also organized and is now offering a new service for students. The "Little Free Library" located on campus in the small parking area in front of the Adult Education building has been converted to a "Little Food Pantry." Students may drive-up at any time to pick-up food. Food may also be dropped off at the Little Food Pantry. "We hope this new way of serving students who may need a little extra support, while safely enforcing social distancing, will also provide a way for our EACC community to feel connected to each other," said Dr. Cline.
EACC continues to support students in many ways during this time.
All services for students continue, either virtually, by appointment, or in small groups. These include:
"As we make swift decisions to support everyone's health and safety, I will continue to keep the campus and community informed," said Dr. Cline. "Protecting the futures of our students and our employees is uppermost in my mind at all times. When life returns to normal, I want us all to have the best life to return to," she added.
EACC employees, except for "essential employees," will continue working remotely. Check EACC email regularly for additional information.
