Please read this message from President Jay Quaintance fully as it contains important announcements.

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

The health and safety of our entire academic community is one of my highest priorities as president of SUNY Sullivan. The COVID-19 outbreak, now defined as a pandemic by the World Health Organization, is a real and present concern for all of us. However, we are not powerless.

The SUNY Sullivan leadership team has been diligently and tirelessly preparing for any number of possible scenarios. We are moving academic courses to distance education modalities beginning March 30th, continuing until further notice. While the campus may be temporarily closed, SUNY Sullivan remains open!

I’m sure you are aware that we are not alone in this situation. There has been daily communication with local colleges and statewide SUNY colleagues. We also are in close communication with the Sullivan County emergency response team. We are monitoring and following all guidance related to the appropriate steps we can take as a public institution of higher education to protect our students, employees, and visitors.

Information Technology Services (ITS) is working closely with deans and faculty and will continue to do so to ensure they are ready for this alternate learning model. We will communicate with the campus community once these plans are finalized.
Nursing and Respiratory students should work with Laura Northrup and Tom McManus and follow the guidance of the employers that they are working with regarding reporting to their clinical.

Spring sports have been suspended until further notice.

We are committed to working with all students and families throughout this process. You may reference all coronavirus-related updates on the website at https://sunysullivan.edu/coronavirus-concerns/.

Thank you for your patience and consideration,
Jay
