COVID-19 | 21 March

Kia ora koutou,

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement today about the increased risk from COVID-19, we have received many queries from anxious students.

Therefore, in consultation with all Colleges and the TEU, we have decided this is the appropriate time to accelerate our plans for online teaching delivery. 

From Monday 23 March all lectures and tutorials will be delivered and available online. For further details of these arrangements please see: https://intranet.canterbury.ac.nz/csr/announce/students/2020/200321.shtml.

Campus facilities remain open.  If you are unwell, please stay at home. Staff who are in an at-risk group are advised to contact their manager to discuss arrangements for working from home.

Staff who require support for teaching online are advised to contact Kaylene Sampson.  Resources are available to support staff for this purpose.

The health and wellbeing of our UC community is our priority. The situation we all face is unprecedented. Our goal remains to provide quality education and to support the health and wellbeing of our staff and students. For additional support the Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) is available.

Please continue to use ucprotect@canterbury.ac.nz if you have any queries.

Kia kaha, kia māia, kia manawanui | Be strong, be brave, be steadfast.

Ngā mihi,

Professor Cheryl de la Rey
Vice-Chancellor | Tumu Whakarae
