Marching Back to Campus
In charting a path forward amid these unprecedented times of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is paramount that Carroll College provide students, employees and visitors with a safe environment to learn, work, live and visit.
The Carroll College Marching Back Plan is a phased approach of policies and protocols that will serve as a guide for the College as we cautiously re-open campus to continue our valued mission. These policies and protocols are rooted in deliberate, data driven decisions that are aligned with the State of Montana and Lewis & Clark Public Health directives. Carroll College’s phases follow closely the timeline of the Governor’s Reopening the Big Sky Plan. It will take all of us working together to ensure that we have a safe and healthy campus environment as we move into the future.
Carroll College feels that restoring an open campus this fall is vital to the educational value for our students. Thus, the College is committed to re-opening for in-person instruction this August, while continuing our commitment to provide students a safe living and learning environment on campus.
This document plans for the implementation of new practices and protocols that seek to better manage the needs of our community. Carroll is fortunate to be small, with very few classes over 25 people. Our size and partnerships allow us to pivot quickly as health protocols change. We will be ready to welcome students on campus - it may look a little different than a traditional semester - but we will adapt and co-create this reality together.
Please know that our knowledge and understanding of COVID-19 is ever evolving, thus our policies and plans will be appropriately updated as more information continues to become available.
