March 27, 2020 Update

Office of the President at Mercy College of Ohio

Dear Mercy College Faculty, Staff, and Students:

I hope this message finds you all safe and healthy, and if you are in quarantine or not feeling well, please take care of yourself. Our thoughts and prayers are with you for a rapid recovery. We are at the end of our second week of supporting all the College activities in the online and digital-mediated environment with a few hours being maintained at the College.

Given the expected increase in the number of cases, the College will reduce its hours next week:

College Hours – Beginning Monday, March 30, 2020 – Toledo Campus

To protect the safety and well-being of the entire campus community, new hours are outlined below: (March 30-April 3).

· Monday, March 30, 2020 10am-4pm Administrator on campus – Marc Adkins

· Tuesday, March 31, 2020 10am-4pm Administrator on campus – Leslie Erwin

· Wednesday, April 1, 2020 10am-4pm Administrator on campus – Dr. Trevor Bates

As you have heard the symptoms for COVID-19 may vary, and new symptoms are being reported. Again, for everyone’s safety, the College will have no on-campus hours Thursday, April 2, 2020 through Sunday, April 5, 2020. College administration will re-evaluate the situation next week and provide an updated schedule for the week of April 6, 2020. I would like everyone to be prepared that the campus may be closed the week of April 6, 2020, which means the remote environment is 100% in effect.

Classes/Clinicals/Practicum/Labs will all continue online or through digital-mediated delivery for the remainder of the semester. Please work directly with faculty and staff through Canvas or electronic communication.

If you have an URGENT situation, and it CANNOT be handled unless you absolutely must come to the College, you may call Lori Edgeworth only on Thursday, April 2 and Friday, April 3 during the hours of 8:30am-4pm. The reason for these times is that the Gandy Clinic is checking all people entering the building, and college hours need to align so that everyone entering is getting screened. Lori’s phone number is 419-251-1614 or she can be reached at

College Hours – Currently in Place and Continuing at Youngstown

Due to the low volume of students coming to the Youngstown location, all faculty and staff are working remotely. Please communicate with them through electronic communication.

Office Accessibility via Remote Access

Please be reminded that all offices at the College are now working remotely and your questions will be answered in the timeliest manner possible. Everyone greatly appreciates your patience and understanding during these difficult times.

Please email the department that you need instead of calling. This will facilitate a faster response with all of the College offices. Department email addresses are:
