VP Message - Coronavirus Update

Dear DSA team,

By now you have most likely seen the announcement from President Smatresk sent earlier detailing our next steps as we deal with the rapidly evolving spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

You can read the announcement and check for updates at https://healthalerts.unt.edu.

As always, our guiding light is doing what is best to help our students achieve their educational goals, and I am fully confident in the path we are on.

I know many of us will be facing questions from students, parents and each other as the days and weeks unfold. Please know that your directors and myself are here to guide you and that I will communicate with you as the need arises.

I want to reiterate what the announcement this morning said and remind you that as you make decisions about returning to campus, please consider the CDC’s criteria for people considered to be at higher risk, including older adults and people with chronic medical conditions. If you or a member of your household falls into one of the high-risk groups as identified by the CDC, such that you may be advised by a health authority not to come to work, please let Human Resources know at 940-565-2281 or AskHR@untsystem.edu.

There is no doubt in my mind that this team will rise to the challenges before us and do everything we can to support and serve our students.

Take care,

Elizabeth With Ed.D.

Vice President for Student Affairs
