Week in Review: April 4, 2020
Fleming College students, alumni, staff and faculty continue to support each other and our communities amidst the COVID-19 outbreak.
To support students in urgent need of financial relief, Fleming College has created the COVID-19 Student Emergency Fund. This fund will support a variety of student needs, including transportation, equipment for online learning, food and rent.
We are adapting to the new virtual and alternate delivery formats. For help with tutoring and learning strategies, Fleming’s Tutoring & Academic Skills Centre is available online to support students with their studies. And to help answer questions and direct students to the right supports and services at Fleming College, The Student Help Line is available Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., at 1-866-341-3485 or via email at email@example.com.
To support our communities, Fleming College helped set up the Peterborough Sport and Wellness Centre to serve as an emergency homeless shelter and donated food to One Roof Community Centre. We also helped cheer on our front-line workers at St. Joseph’s at Fleming and Peterborough Regional Health Centre for the #HonkForOurHeroes initiative on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 7 p.m.
We are so proud that our students, alumni, staff and faculty are using their knowledge and skills to make a difference too. Fleming Environmental Technician graduate Dylan Radcliffe is making face shields to protect healthcare workers; Culinary Management graduate Jen Wight is showing courage and creativity to adapt her business, Emily Mae’s Cookies and Sweets, during the COVID-19 outbreak; many students and alumni are working in required services, and we know many others are doing what they can to help.
We are sharing a review of our Fleming community each week. Please share your story and tag #FlemingCollege. We will get through this together.
