Dear Students,

In response to NCCU's declaration regarding changes to university operations (see Chancellor's message below), I will be modifying the remaining work in the course to ensure you are best supported in completing all work under these new conditions. I understand that this is a challenging time, and I want you to remember that your health and that of your loved ones should take precedence. 

I will update the remainder of the course calendar and the grading scale for this course over the next week and will provide you ample time to begin the second half of this course when instruction resumes on March 23. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns as we work together to navigate these next few weeks.

Thank you,



Dear NCCU Community,

Following new guidance from the University of North Carolina System, North Carolina Central University will be extending spring break by one week, with classes to resume on Monday, March 23, 2020. More detailed information, including alternative delivery of academic instruction, will be provided in the next 24 hours. A news release from the UNC System can be found here: https://www.northcarolina.edu/news/2020/03/UNC-System-Issues-Update-Coronavirus-Preparations.

The health and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff remains our number one priority. Please continue to visit www.nccu.edu/coronavirus for updates.

In Truth and Service,

Johnson O. Akinleye
