As Waco is currently under a shelter-in-place order, our faculty, staff, and students will be working remotely and may not be as responsive as they might other be. We have extensive FAQ sections for our undergraduate and graduate programs that should answer many of your questions. For the foreseeable future, email is likely to be the best way to reach our faculty and staff, but we ask your patience as we all work through these challenging circumstances together.
We hope your first few weeks on-line have gone well. I can assure you that my departmental colleagues and I are working hard to delivery on-line instruction, and we appreciate your willingness to work through this with us.
You may have seen the recent announcement that summer classes will now be taught on-line. We plan to offer on-line every course originally scheduled, to help you continue making progress toward graduation. In fact, those of you who had not originally planned to take classes may find that taking courses on-line to be an option you can now consider. Please review our course offerings when you register in the coming days and weeks.
Best of luck in the remaining few weeks of this most-unusual semester, and we all look forward to the time when we can be on campus together.
