Our National Government has announced that the Enhanced Community Quarantine or ECQ arising from the threat of COVID-19 has been extended up to April 30, 2020. Let us all obey the Extended Community Quarantine Guidelines and stay home.
With the announced extension, I would like to assure everyone of our continued commitment to serve our clientele, particularly our students, through the implementation of our Resilient Education Delivery (RED) Plan. Thus, UNC shall implement the following measures:
1. All Non-academic employees and the Student Affairs and Services Team shall continue doing their work from home to make sure that fast and relevant services are delivered to constituents and stakeholders as needed. The health and safety of our students and constituents are our top priority, hence, our own medical and guidance staff will always be ready to extend a helping hand. Students and employees can continue availing of our telehealth insurance service whenever needed in this time of crisis.
2. The Academic Team consisting of deans, principals, faculty and academic staff, headed by the VP for Academic Affairs, shall continue engaging with students to ensure a meaningful and productive distance teaching-learning experience, following the guidelines set forth in the enhanced RED Plan (Our RED Ways These Gray Days). To complete the required number of days of engagement for the second semester of SY 2019-2020, distance learning activities shall
be extended up to May 7, 2020, which will be the date for the end of the second semester. Other dates pertaining to academic related matters such as assessments, computation of and submission of grades, summer online enrollment, summer classes, faculty trainings and required
outputs, enrollment for the first semester of SY 2020-2021, and start of first semester classes will be set forth in a separate set of guidelines to be issued next week.
With these, I continue to call on the cooperation and support of everyone so that we will not falter in our efforts to realize our purpose and aspiration for a better tomorrow for all, not for school, but for life.
I enjoin each one to stay safe at all times, and I wish everyone a blessed Holy Week. May God bless each and everyone of us, the UNC, our community, our country and the whole of humanity.
