The most important thing people can do right now is to stay patient, kind and understanding. Faculty, students and staff may not be as technologically capable when they are away from campus. We all need to keep in mind that this situation is difficult for everyone involved, and we all need to be flexible and adapt to this temporary disruption.
- Anyone in the College of Education with questions or concerns related to remote delivery of course materials, field experiences (student teaching, internships, etc.), advising, technology issues or other issues may fill out our web form, available here.
- The University also understands that many of our students have encountered unexpected financial hardship due to coronavirus precautions. Penn State alumni and friends interested in alleviating some of that hardship are asked to make a difference by clicking here to make a donation to the Student Care & Advocacy Emergency Fund. All new contributions to the fund will be directed toward students across the Penn State system who, as a byproduct of protective measures against the coronavirus, face challenges related to housing, transportation, access to resources for remote learning, and other unforeseen personal difficulties.
- Those seeking specifically to support the College of Education are encouraged – gratefully – to make a donation to the College of Education Future Fund, proceeds from which empower Dean Kimberly Lawless to address challenges unique to our students and faculty at this extraordinary time.
- Additional ways to help our University community will be added here as they become known.
