In light of Governor JB Pritzker’s executive stay-at-home order last week, and for the continued safety of our community, the College has received approval from campus to close the Education and Children’s Research Center (CRC) buildings to the general public until further notice.
Both buildings remain accessible to faculty, staff, and graduate students via 24/7 card swipe, using a valid and non-expired iCard. At the Education Building, the southwest accessible entry is equipped with a card reader for swipe access. Several entry points at CRC allow card swipe access for building occupants. Additionally, both facilities will be accessible by building service workers and approved contractors working on ongoing university-funded building renovation projects.
We encourage you to leave home only when absolutely necessary during this statewide, mandated order. However, we understand you may need access to workplace items and tools over the next several weeks. While most classrooms and common spaces in our buildings are locked or closed to discourage group gatherings, campus-controlled classrooms remain open and available for instructors to use (if necessary) for instruction purposes. Social distancing practices (six feet separation) are still in effect.
If you have any questions or issues regarding swipe access to the Education or CRC building, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Campus mail, USPS mail, and FedEx/UPS deliveries and shipments will be held at their locations until further notice. Our Finance/IT Partners teams are able to ship small equipment and supplies directly to faculty and staff home addresses, as needed.
Please contact email@example.com regarding equipment should any needs arise.
