It’s something they had been anticipating for some time, and thus have been well prepared to actually do. As a result, and in light of new state mandated restrictions, Lake Michigan College is adapting to the updated rules, increasing safety precautions in response to the new state directives to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Non-essential employees will begin working remotely and additional in-person classes will move to remote learning beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, November 18th.
LMC President, Dr. Trevor Kubatzke, says, “We’ve been preparing for this possibility for many months,” and adds, “Most of our classes this semester are already remote. Professors who teach on-campus designed their courses knowing this could happen. We’ve ordered extra laptops for students who need them. We’re ready to keep students on track safely and successfully.”
Some classes will remain in-person following strict safety protocols, including those that train critically needed law enforcement, correctional, medical or first responder personnel. All services for current and prospective students including financial aid and advising are available remotely. Registration for the Spring 2021 semester is now open and classes starting in January will be offered in a variety of flexible online, remote and in-person formats.
The campuses including the Mendel Center will be closed to the general public through December 8th or until whenever the order is lifted.
Lake Michigan Vintners Welch Center on the Napier Campus will be closed for tastings, however, they will remain open for carryout and curbside delivery services.
