The Division of Student Affairs remains committed to serving UNC Pembroke students throughout COVID-19 by utilizing virtual services, events, resources and programs to stay connected with students.
Each department within the division is taking digital steps to meet students where they are in order to help them achieve success at the institution. From virtual work outs, to virtual counseling, telehealth and virtual career fairs, the departments are working together to address the needs during this unique experience.
“We are serving our students in new ways and are committed to fostering a full university experience, whether on campus or virtually. In times of a pandemic or not, we are still here for our students and are excited for the new ways in which we are able to connect with our campus community,” explained Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Dr. Lisa L. Schaeffer.
Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Dr. Art Malloy added, “Higher education administrators must continue to be innovative and current when it comes to the many ways we use technology. We must be prepared to identify the appropriate ways and platforms to deliver services to students in person and online. This is a challenge that all universities must face. We are committed to meeting this challenge today, tomorrow and in the future,”
