Valley City State University has moved all academic instruction online for the remainder of spring semester 2020.
On March 12, VCSU announced a plan to move to online instruction for two weeks, from March 23 to April 3, after its March 16-20 spring break. However, in light of the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic and the need to respond decisively for the health safety of its constituents, the decision was made to not bring students back to campus for the remainder of the semester.
“This decision has been a difficult one,” said President Alan LaFave, “but we cannot place our community at risk. We’re also confident that we can deliver excellent, effective academic instruction from a distance. Our similar experience during the Sheyenne River flood of 2009 and the success of our current online undergraduate and graduate programs have provided us with the technological tools, skills and aptitude to make this happen.”
