Dear Skyhawk students,
We hope you are looking forward to our Spring 2021 Semester, which gets started at the end of next week! We are eager to have you back in our classes, whether that be in-person or virtually--all of your Fort Lewis College faculty and staff can't wait to welcome you back!
I'm writing with the latest academic information for the new semester; please see the detailed outline of topics below and check our Gear Up FLC webpage for the most up-to-date information. Of course, the context of the coronavirus makes the return to campus complex, so we want to alert you to some new initiatives and remind you of our safety protocols. We are proud that we were able to use the fall semester to create safe in-person classrooms (we had zero classroom transmission of the virus) and to create new forms of virtual teaching (via new Zoom classes and our new Tech Bundles)--we look forward to continuing this adaptability and innovation this spring.
Please review the following academic information. This information will be posted online for you to easily reference; you may also review online other emails from campus leadership, including a welcome message from President Stritikus and an important health message from Associate Vice President Jeff Dupont.
Stay Skyhawk safe and Skyhawk strong!
