Carthage and COVID-19

Student Involvement

Carthage’s Office of Student Involvement is encouraging student organizations to maintain connections during our time of separation so that students feel supported and engaged, and have the opportunity to connect and have fun with classmates.

Questions or concerns? Contact Liz Snider at esnider@carthage.edu or Lance Thompson at lthompson5@carthage.edu.

In-Person Events

All in-person events have been canceled for the remainder of the school year.

Student Organizations During Remote Learning

During the period of virtual classroom instruction, we hope that you maintain connections and find ways to engage with the members of your organization. Google.Meet, Skype, or FaceTime are great resources to host virtual meetings. We encourage you to maintain your regularly scheduled meeting times and proposed topics, with potential adjustments to activities to fit the virtual format. 

Student organization leaders can use this time to make updates to their organization-specific page on The Harbor.

Organization Finances and Budget Requests for Fall 2020

Budget information sessions were tentatively scheduled for the end of March, which now overlaps with the virtual instruction period. Student Involvement staff is working closely with the Student Government Finance Committee to coordinate virtual information sessions to ensure that the timeline for budget requests and approval stays intact so your organization can continue to plan for the fall. Information will be shared broadly about upcoming information sessions and budget submission deadlines by the end of this week.

Virtual Campus Events

The Office of Student Involvement, the Dean of Students Office of Equity and Inclusion, and the Center for Faith and Spirituality are working together to develop a series of virtual involvement opportunities for students during the remote instruction period.

Keep your eyes out on The Bridge and The Harbor in the coming days for more information about virtual programs, workshops, and social media gatherings.

Keep up with the social media outlets for the Office of Student Involvement (@carthageinvolvement), the Office of Equity and Inclusion (@carthagediversity), and the Center for Faith and Spirituality (@carthage_cfs) for behind-the-scenes looks as we prepare for these programs.
