Campus Operations Updates
November 3, 2020
Dear LIM Community,
Election Day is finally here!
Given the uncertainty surrounding the outcome of the election and its potential impact on safely navigating into and out of New York City over the next few days, LIM College has decided to extend our all-virtual/remote environment for the balance of this week.
LIM will continue to operate in an all-virtual/remote classroom and work environment for Wed. Nov. 4 and Thurs. Nov. 5. As usual, Friday, Nov. 6 will be an all-virtual/remote classroom and work day as well.
While our physical buildings will be closed, all College services and offices will be open and accessible remotely. All faculty will offer their coursework virtually. All staff will work their regularly scheduled hours virtually. And on Mon. Nov. 9, we plan to return to the hybrid model of in-person and virtual learning and working that has been successful throughout this semester.
No matter who you vote for, where you watch the election results unfold, or how challenging it can be for you to anticipate what this all means for the future of our nation, please know that you are not alone. The LIM community has always been a safe space where we can respectfully, peacefully, and inclusively learn and grow together.
To that end, students are encouraged to join the "Real Talk About the Election" workshop hosted by the Office of Counseling and Accessibility Services via Zoom on Fri. Nov. 6 and all faculty, staff, and students are invited to visit and contribute to our virtual Election 2020 Reflection Wall. (Please see your LIM email for links.)
Finally, in the spirit of transparent understanding of the election process itself, we encourage you to check out the following resources:
