Thank you so much for your concern. We know many alumni have close relationships with faculty and technicians at the university. On Tuesday, March 17, NSCAD determined that, in order to safely complete the term, all courses would move to remote or alternative delivery. This will help students complete the term and allow the university to continue classes.
We’re all trying to navigate the impacts of disruption. Clearly, the Winter 2020 semester will not have a natural closure. Some students left unfinished projects and many missed in-person farewells to faculty, technicians and friends. Celebrations like the Fashion Show, the Student Art Awards, the year-end show, and the Graduation ceremony are all postponed. Faculty and staff, excepting essential services, have been working remotely since March 19.
As always, our first priority has been our students. Faculty and staff continue to demonstrate tremendous dedication as they work together to identify ways to preserve the winter 2020 semester. You can appreciate that NSCAD’s hands-on learning environment presented challenges when devising alternative delivery methods. Despite the complexity, NSCAD has put in place contingencies that are enabling students to complete this term through remote learning and other delivery alternatives as of Thursday, March 19, 2020. The 2020 winter semester will not be lost to our students who have invested so much in their work. Students scheduled to complete their degrees will be able to graduate.
Beyond academic needs, we’re also working with the Students’ Union (SUNCAD) to provide assistance to students facing food insecurity, and we are helping those whose housing situation is affected by the crisis through the support of our community here in Nova Scotia. At every opportunity we remind students of the emotional supports available to them through NSCAD. The students’ resilience is on display throughout this period of uncertainty. Their concern for each another and the community is the cornerstone of the empathy needed to succeed in arts, craft and design.
These events, and any gathering, have been postponed. NSCAD will advise our faculty, students, alumni, and community as we are able to provide more information.
If you were considering sponsoring the Student Art Awards and the Fashion Show, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We will need your help to make these events memorable!
Yes. Donations will continue to support the designated purpose outlined by our donors.
NSCAD is looking forward to engaging with its alumni community in Nova Scotia and around the world! The long-term impacts of COVID-19 are still unknown, but we are working to provide new ways for alumni to connect with NSCAD and one another.
