Coronavirus Public Information

Resources for Instructional Continuity:

Dear Community Members, MJC Employees, and MJC Students:

Modesto Junior College is 98 years and 6 months old.  We are knocking on the door of 100 years of existence.  In that time our country, our community and our college have overcome the Great Depression, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the AIDS pandemic, the attacks of 9/11, the Iraq War and the Great Recession.  Today the world has placed at our feet COVID-19. 

I share with each of you the fears and anxieties associated with this crisis.  While I share those feelings of uncertainty I am also confident we will endure.  

As I reflect on what has transpired over the last two weeks, two truths are evident.  First, California Community Colleges will operate differently from this point forward.  We have now been thrust into a new world, and it will encourage us to reimagine and continue in the manner in which we best serve our students.  Second, there simply is no obstacle, no challenge and no barrier that can outmatch the resiliency of our employees and our students.  When I look at what we all have experienced and what we all have accomplished these last two weeks I am convinced of this truth.

In response to the current situation, MJC is announcing the following steps:

  • We will continue with classes though remote instruction or fully online through the end of the Spring Semester.
  • The Summer schedule has been designed at this time to be remote instruction or fully online.  There is flexibility to add face to face classes in the later Summer session should we be allowed to return to campus.
  • We will continue with a postponement of all events, including Commencement, and travel through the end of the Spring Semester.
  • When a return to campus becomes possible we will immediately notify all students, employees and community members.   

To our faculty:

Thank you for making the impossible possible.  You took over 1,700 sections of classes to remote learning in a matter of days.  You embraced the training opportunities, and you came alongside each other to deliver quality instruction.  Your love for our students, your passion for your craft, and your vulnerability in requesting help is to be applauded and celebrated.  You are role models to our students, and your accessibility to students in their greatest time of need is inspiring. 

To our classified professionals:

You have paved the way and set the examples that other schools have been emulating since this crisis began. MJC was among the first college’s to transition to remote learning and other colleges took notice.  By moving almost all services online, from Financial Aid and Enrollment Services to Special Programs and Counseling, our students are being served at the highest levels possible.  By creating a system and training staff on Live Chat in just a few days, our students were able to get their questions answered and feel heard.  Many of you have had to make major adjustments to your method of work, and you have even taken on more work at times.  You are true Beacons of Hope!

To our administration team:

The speed with which you have had to gather information and make decisions could be overwhelming to most, but each of you has made it look effortlessly.  From our daily Executive Cabinet, Deans, and Student Services meetings to the many department meetings, you all have kept your finger on the pulse; you are meeting the needs of your teams; and you are making it possible for our students to experience as few setbacks as possible.  I am indebted to you all and fortunate to work alongside you.

To our community members:

Your phone calls, emails, donations, and genuine concern for our employees, our students, and for your college have been much appreciated.  So many individuals and businesses have reached out and offered a helping hand to those in need, proving that we are indeed the this community’s college  

To our MJC students:

There is no possible way that I could grasp the magnitude of what everyone is going through.  For many of you, a semester in its “normal” form is difficult to navigate with all of life’s challenges.  Please know, your persistence and resilience is inspiring.   To the members of the Associated Students and their President Mikayla Ramirez, I thank you for your leadership, your advocacy, and your guidance.  Even during this crisis, and while attending to your own classes and lives, you continue to attend meetings, reach out to students, and serve your campus.  You truly live up to your motto: Excellent, Effort, Everyday!

During this critical time, please take care of yourselves.  Rest, exercise, stay hydrated, and please use the resources available to you.  Be sure to comply with Governor Newsom’s Stay at Home order so we can return to a face to face world.  While today may be hard to face, I am confident, that tomorrow and the days that follow will see us overcome this crisis.  I am honored to serve you all!

Kind regards,

 

James L.J. Houpis, Ph.D.

President
