The Shippensburg University community came together to complete what we once thought may not be possible.
As Shippensburg University comes out of the pandemic, we continue to make progress in recreating the normal we once knew
Dear Interim President Patterson,
We as a society share some collective aftermaths of the pandemic. Whether it is the continued social distancing, virtual learning, vaccinations or reduced business hours, we all feel some of the same burdens and inconveniences.
Once again America finds itself grappling with not one but two mass shootings in a matter of days. A man killed 10 people at a Boulder, Colorado, grocery store on March 22. Another man killed eight people in a series of shootings in Atlanta, Georgia, on March 16.
According to the Asian American Journalists Association, the shootings targeting Asian spas and businesses in Atlanta on March 16 killed eight people. Six of the victims were identified as Asian and seven were women. At least four of those killed were of Korean descent.
Shippensburg University is going to go through a lot of changes in the coming months. SU President Laurie Carter announced her plans to leave the university to take the same position at Lawrence University in Wisconsin. The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) redesign is in full-swing and will impact SU and our sister schools.
When the COVID-19 coronavirus first gripped the nation, educators across the nation had to quickly adapt to a continuously changing world. Students needed to continue learning but traditional delivery methods were not an option.
The Shippensburg University community continues to adapt its academic plans and social traditions almost a year into the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
Shippensburg University officials work hard to maintain student enrollment and keep them engaged in their classes. Anytime and especially during a global pandemic, these retention strategies are important to aid in students’ educational journeys.
