Newsletter with important information regarding the spring 2021 semester.Download
I recently shared with faculty, staff, and students Mercy College's plan for the summer 2021 semester, and I also want to share that information with you.
Face-to-face classes resumed on a small scale, in June of 2020 and have gradually increased through the current semester. Mercy College will continue most lecture content online with skills labs, simulation, and other hands-on instruction taking place on-campus through the summer semester. Students will attend clinical and preceptor experiences in the local hospitals and other healthcare agencies.
All on-campus experiences will continue to be carefully scheduled, and the number of students is limited at any one time. To protect the health and safety of those on campus, anyone entering the college must wear a protective face covering and follow strict social distancing guidelines.
If you have any questions, the COVID-19 page on the College website at www.mercycollege.edu/covid19 contains a form for you to complete and submit. You will receive a response within 24 hours.
Be assured we continue to provide the best education in preparing future healthcare providers.
I also want to take this opportunity to thank the students, faculty, and staff for following the health and safety measures at Mercy College.
We have not experienced many of the same challenges as other colleges due to high compliance with following all safety measures.
I’m so proud of the flexibility and resilience demonstrated by Mercy College employees and students. The commitment to our students has been apparent every day. We will continue to get through this together. We are Mercy Strong!

Due to the increasing numbers of students and faculty/staff who are in the Mercy College travel and exposure protocol led by our student health nurse Jennifer Barber, and our Incident Commander, Marc Adkins, the following plan of action is being implemented to continue to meet the needs of our students and faculty/staff with regard to everyone’s safety and well-being.
Effective Wednesday November 18, 2020 all classes will be moved to the virtual/remote/digital-mediated learning environment. Tuesday, November 17, 2020 will be the last day of on-campus activities.
The remaining days of the semester from December 7, 2020-December 16, 2020, the College will be open minimal hours due to the increasing COVID numbers. The hours will be Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10:00am-2:00pm. Students, faculty and staff should only be on campus for URGENT situations. Jefferson 6th floor will be the point of entry for students who need to study in the cubicles, use the computers, print papers, etc.
The College will be open with faculty/staff working remotely from Thursday, December 17, 2020 through Monday, January 4, 2021.
Youngstown will follow the same schedule as Toledo. Students will continue to follow the same guidelines for entering the Youngstown location. Please follow any instructions provided by faculty/staff.
Thank you for all you have done to keep the College a safe place during the last 15 weeks! We thank you also for being flexible as we move forward with the remaining days of the semester and into the new year!! We continue to be agile, dedicated and Mercy Strong!
As you prepare for the holidays, we ask that you continue to think of the health and well-being of your families and friends, your Mercy student colleagues, and Mercy College faculty/staff, and above all please remember to take care of yourself. This will be a difficult and challenging holiday season and we want to keep everyone safe and healthy. Many blessings to all as we enter the holiday season.
President, Mercy College of Ohio
