Interim Associate Dean for Academic and Student Affairs Ania Wieczorek sent a message of hope and reassurance to CTAHR students on March 22, giving them much-needed information and encouragement.
Among the things she conveyed were that all CTAHR classes will be able to be held online, thanks to the faculty and staff who worked hard to make this happen.
The CTAHR Student Lounge and its resources, such as printer, textbooks, and free shelf, will remain available to students, though in order to maintain safe social distancing, the capacity of the lounge will be limited to a maximum of 10 people at any given time.
The pantry is stocked with non-perishable food for easy take-home use for the students. A big mahalo is owed to CTAHR alumnus Steve Sato for continuing to help feed the students of CTAHR! Faculty and staff are also encouraged to donate food items to students who may be in need. Donations can be made to the donation box in the second-floor lobby of Gilmore Hall.
Towards the middle of this week, two computer labs will be opened for CTAHR students who do not have access to computers or internet, and an announcement will be sent when these spaces are ready for use. They will also include provision for safe social distancing.
These are worrisome times, but CTAHR is helping to support its students through them!
