Fleming College to Start Fall Term Online and Transition to Face-to-Face Classes | Fleming Safe Plan Balances Safety and Learning

Peterborough ON – (May 11, 2020) – Fleming College will begin the Fall semester using online and alternative delivery on Sept. 8.  The College’s Fleming Safe plan will ensure that students can complete the learning outcomes required in their programs while maintaining the highest possible safety standards in compliance with all government and public health directives. 

“Our Fall semester will be delivered through alternate models as we prepare for multiple scenarios for our campuses and classrooms to create the utmost in safe learning environments,” said Maureen Adamson, President, Fleming College. “We will follow guidelines from public health and the province, and our delivery decisions will be focused on the health and safety of everyone in our community.”

“The plan allows flexibility to react to the loosening of health and safety restrictions by being ready to begin face-to-face, applied learning responsibly and appropriately. We do not anticipate that all health and safety restrictions will be lifted all at once – we are ready to respond swiftly to advance student success effectively given the circumstances that will present themselves,” continued Adamson.

Fleming will work with community partners to re-establish field placements, field trips, clinical placements and other applied learning opportunities aligned with health and safety directives.

At the outset of COVID-19, the College established task teams to develop the response to the pandemic. Teams assigned to academic programming and facilities protocols are now assembling detailed plans for the return to classes in September. Alongside planning for the return to class and access to campus facilities this fall, the college is also assessing how students will safely access residence, food services and athletics. Decisions addressing these broader college services and programs will be shared in the near future.

“I want to thank our students for their patience. We are taking these steps to provide as much certainty as we can for students and their families at this point in time. In keeping with our guiding principle of ‘safety first’, we are dedicated to moving forward and mitigating any risk of recurrence. I also want to thank our Fleming employees for their incredible resilience and dedication to our students and our communities,” added Adamson.

Fleming College Announces Cancellation of Haliburton School of Art + Design Summer School Programs

Haliburton ON – (April 8, 2020) – The 2020 Haliburton School of Art + Design summer program will be cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Fleming College announced the change today regarding more than 300 week-long and weekend courses that occur May through September every year. 

“The summer arts program has been an integral part of the Haliburton community every summer for more than 50 years,” said Tom Phillips, Vice President, Academic Experience at Fleming College. “Although this is a difficult decision that impacts thousands of students and many others in the arts community, it is the only option available to us as we hold the health and safety of the community as our highest priority.”

The week-long courses and workshops for adults and kids, beginners and experts are held annually at the Haliburton Campus, J. Douglas Hodgson Elementary School, Haliburton Highlands Secondary School, as well as locations in Toronto and Kleinburg. 

“We remain committed to the arts community in Haliburton and will endure this challenge together,” said Angela Stukator, Dean, Haliburton School of Art + Design. “We love art. We love being creative. We will find a way through this and we will come back stronger than ever.” 

All students will be contacted by the college in the near future regarding the cancellation and refunds.

Information Update | COVID-19 Update from College President Maureen Adamson – April 3, 2020

This message is sent on behalf of President Maureen Adamson

Peterborough ON – (April 3, 2020) – I continue to be amazed by the creativity, generosity and resilience of our Fleming community as we adapt to learning and working together in the new context of COVID-19. We can’t understate the importance of what we have done together. As our Premier emphasized earlier today, the measures we have taken have saved lives.

We continue to adjust our programs and support services to provide every opportunity for students to learn and receive the guidance and support they deserve as we move forward in these very unique circumstances.

As we announced earlier, the Spring semester will now begin on May 19 in online or alternative delivery only. Our faculty, Chairs and Deans have worked together to assess all programs and create opportunities to run as many programs as possible in the new format. A complete list of Spring semester offerings is below and will be posted to our website soon. Students returning for the Spring semester will be contacted by their faculty or program coordinators shortly with more information on the upcoming semester. Please be reminded that placements remain under suspension until further notice. There may be exceptions for co-op placements where the workplace is still operating. Students will hear from their faculty or program coordinator closer to the start of the semester regarding these.

The academic schedule for the coming months has changed. A revised version will be posted here. Some of the key dates that have changed include:

  • April 17, 2020          Tuition Fees – Spring Term Final Payment Due – All domestic students
  • May 1, 2020             Tuition Fees – Spring Term Due Date – All returning international students
  • May 1, 2020              Final Date to Withdraw from a course of less than eight weeks duration (delivered in second half of term) and receive a ‘‘W’ designation on Academic Record
  • May 1, 2020              Final Date to Withdraw from a course of more than seven weeks and receive a ‘W’ designation on Academic Record

Unfortunately, our Convocation ceremonies scheduled for May and June must be rescheduled. Graduating students will receive their credentials in June as planned. This is a tough decision knowing how much this means to students and their families. We are exploring alternatives and will communicate new plans in the near future.

Some students have asked about a refund for the Winter semester. We are focused on providing the same level of teaching and support to students including access to faculty, learning supports and counselling services. We are working to ensure that all graduating students will achieve the necessary learning outcomes for each program. With this in mind, we will not be offering refunds for the Winter semester. Partial refunds for services no longer available or relevant, such as parking, residence and lockers, will be issued on a prorated basis as previously announced. In addition, depending on the program of study, students may be eligible for a refund on program fees where the event or service did not happen (e.g. camps or trips).

We recognize that many students will be facing financial uncertainty as a result of COVID-19. To assist those in need, we have established an emergency support fund. The College is reallocating funds from other sources and soliciting donations from the public. Beginning next week, students will be able to apply for support through our website.

For any questions that students have, they can contact our Student Help Line, available Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at 1-866-341-3485 or by email at studenthelpline@flemingcollege.ca.

I am incredibly proud of the efforts being made by our employees, students and alumni in support of our community. We have made several donations of gloves, masks and other protective equipment to hospitals and long-term care facilities in Peterborough, Lindsay and Haliburton. We have also made a donation of food to the emergency homeless shelter that has been set up at the Peterborough Sport and Wellness Centre and, where possible, we are making our residences available to front-line health care providers.

There are hundreds of Fleming graduates working on the front-lines of this crisis. Nurses, Personal Support Workers, first responders and so many others providing support to those in need in our communities. Their efforts are nothing short of heroic and we salute them.

I urge all of you to continue to practice physical distancing and abide by all recommendations provided by government and public health units across our region. For more information, visit our website at http://www.flemingcollege.ca/covid19 or email us at COVID19@flemingcollege.ca

Stay safe and stay strong.

Sincerely,

Maureen Adamson
President, Fleming College

Information Update | COVID-19 Update from College President Maureen Adamson – March 27, 2020

This message is sent on behalf of President Maureen Adamson

Peterborough ON – (March 27, 2020) – Just days ago, I wrote to you as we were faced with an entirely new reality presented by COVID-19, one that would challenge us in many ways. Now, as we have progressed through the first week of teaching and learning within our new framework, I am immensely impressed by the resilience of our students and the collaborative and creative work of our faculty and staff. We are all doing everything we can to successfully complete the semester for as many students as possible and support each other along the way.

To further protect the health and safety of the Fleming community and provide as much support and relief as possible, we are making the following adjustments:

  • All campus buildings are now closed to both students and employees until further notice. This action aligns with the Provincial Emergency Declaration and supports ongoing physical distancing within our communities. Access will only be granted to those essential to maintaining critical operations infrastructure.
  • Some programs will not be offered for the Spring semester. Our academic team is currently exploring every option and finalizing the list of available programs and will share it very soon.
  • For programs that will be offered, the Spring semester will now start on May 19 in an online or alternate delivery format only. No face-to-face classes will run during the Spring semester. The semester will be 14 continuous weeks in duration, ending on August 21. Students who wish to defer to the Fall semester may do so through the Admissions office. Please note that deferral to the Fall semester may not be possible for all programs.
  • There will be no Spring intake of international students from out-of-country. Students who had received offers and paid tuition will be offered deferrals for future intakes once conditions for travel have improved. Returning students currently in Canada can continue their programs online.
  • A revised list of due dates and schedules for grades, fees and other items will be shared early next week.
  • We understand that questions have been raised regarding refunds for courses and services. At this time, we will not be issuing refunds for continuing programs. We are working with the Ministry of Colleges and Universities for further guidance through this unprecedented situation.
  • Students will be eligible for refunds for parking, residence and locker charges prorated as of March 16. A credit will be issued to student accounts. More details on the implementation will follow shortly.
  • Once we are back on campus, employees paying for parking will be granted a fee “holiday” via payroll or a discount on their next parking permit for a period of time equivalent to that between March 16 and the re-opening of our campuses. Those employees on term contracts who will not be returning to work can apply for a refund. More details will follow.

Please know that we are doing all we can to provide support to students and employees. Virtual support services are running. Counselling, tutoring, peer mentoring, library support and other services are available by phone, video chat or email. International Student Services is running live chat and virtual support rooms via Webex. Our Learning Design and Support team has several tools to help faculty move to online and alternate delivery. 

For all employees, our Employee and Family Assistance program is available to assist you with a wide range of challenges. 

I’m also proud of the support that we are providing to our communities. The Peterborough Sport and Wellness Centre is being set up as an emergency homeless shelter to alleviate stress on the current shelters and allow for appropriate physical distancing. We will be making residence space available to the Peterborough Regional Health Centre to potentially house some of their employees if it is needed. Where possible, we will be offering supplies to our healthcare partners and we have made donations of food to local support groups.

In the coming days, we will be making more decisions and making further adjustments as we evaluate information gathered from our public health units and other government authorities.

Please continue to monitor our website and send questions to COVID19@flemingcollege.ca

This time is unlike any other we have experienced at Fleming. There are challenges and there are frustrations. But, the wonderful part is the sense that our college and our community is coming together to stop the spread of this pandemic. The cancellations, shut-downs, physical distancing and other disruptive changes, will work. It will take time, but we as a college and a community will come through this stronger than ever.

Sincerely,

Maureen Adamson
President, Fleming College

Information Update | COVID-19 Update for students from College President Maureen Adamson – March 20, 2020

This message is sent on behalf of President Maureen Adamson

Peterborough ON – (March 20, 2020) – As you are aware, Fleming College closed all campuses until further notice in an effort to reduce the number of people on campuses and minimize the transmission of COVID-19 within the (college or broader) community.

We know how important completing the semester and having access to services is for you. The College has transitioned most academic programs and student services, that were not already available online, into virtual and alternative delivery formats. Accessing programs and services in this new way will take effect on Monday, March 23 and faculty will connect with students directly.

This change is big for all of us – one that would not be possible without the tremendous spirit and collaboration of our students, faculty, staff and others. Faculty and staff have been working very hard to prepare for this transition. We recognize that it is not going to be easy for all students and all programs, and that this may be a challenging time.

Everyone at the College is committed to supporting you but it will look and feel different than what you are familiar with. We know that we will need to adjust along the way to best address needs or concerns that are identified. Your constructive feedback will be important. We will continue to evolve our programs and services to ensure you have the best opportunity to complete the semester.

These are stressful and uncertain times, but please know that you are not alone. Support services are available virtually via the phone, email or online tools, and can be found here or through the student portal

If you are feeling distressed and require immediate assistance, please reach out to https://realcampus.ca/ at 1-877-390-7325 or Good2Talk by phone 1-866-925-5454 or text GOOD2TALKON to 686868. Please do not hesitate to reach out for help if you need it.

All available student service supports and more information on COVID-19 can be found here and on your student portal. 

As the COVID-19 situation evolves, the College will continue to make future decisions about upcoming events. Updates will continue to be provided to the College community as available. We thank you for your patience, understanding and support as we tackle this new challenge together.

Sincerely,

Maureen Adamson
President, Fleming College

Information Update |COVID-19 Update from College President Maureen Adamson – March 17, 2020

This message is sent on behalf of President Maureen Adamson

Peterborough ON – (March 17, 2020) – Each day the COVID-19 situation changes rapidly. This morning, a state of emergency was declared by Premier Doug Ford, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced further measures as the entire country deals with this unprecedented crisis.

At Fleming, we continue to take proactive measures to protect our community, adapt teaching and learning to remote or alternative formats and support our students and employees.

There are several new developments:

  • Faculty continue to work on plans for alternative delivery methods for our programs and will be in contact with students by Friday, March 20.
  • We have made the difficult decision to close our Student Residences and to require all students to move out by Friday, March 20 at 3 p.m. Alternative arrangements have been made for International students and others who are in exceptional circumstances. Students in residence were advised of the closure earlier today.
  • All campuses in Peterborough, Lindsay, Norwood and Haliburton are closed to the public with restricted access on a very limited basis. People who need access to the buildings are being screened through a small number of access points and must sign in and out.
  • The Cobourg Campus is closed with no access to the classrooms or offices. Access to Fleming employees is available through phone, web and email.
  • Although our buildings are effectively closed with controlled access in place right now, we will be further reducing access to our buildings throughout the week. Students should not come to campus until further notice. More information will be shared with employees tomorrow.
  • Services delivered through our Employment offices in Peterborough (CREW) and Haliburton are now available via phone, web and email only. Physical locations are closed.

There are also many decisions under consideration right now. We are working through various alternatives and scenarios on several important issues, such as the status of the Spring semester scheduled to begin on May 4, the financial impacts on students (OSAP, payment deadlines and deposits), and the impact on our upcoming convocation ceremonies. On many of these issues, we are working with Colleges Ontario and the provincial government.

We will continue to keep you informed through regular updates on our website www.flemingcollege.ca/COVID19. Please forward any questions to COVID19@flemingcollege.ca   

Thank you again for your patience as we work together through these uncharted waters. Please be safe, practice healthy prevention measures and be sure to take care of each other.

Sincerely,

Maureen Adamson
President, Fleming College
