To our ACTS coaches and scholars,

The last couple of weeks have been a trying time for us all. Events seem to be unfolding at a dizzying speed. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected our lives, employment, education and more.

As we prepare for classes to resume online on Monday, March 23, I wanted to let you know that the Academic Coaching and Tutoring Services team will be here to support you as we all navigate this new reality.

Like all campus operations, ACTS will be transitioning to remote learning support for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester, including virtual academic coaching sessions. We’re working hard on defining exactly what that means, what it will look like and what resources we can make available to support our coaches and scholars.

We plan to have more information to share with you soon. Thank you for your patience with us during this time. In the meantime, you can keep up with the latest updates about the campus response to COVID-19 at

Remember to stay healthy and take care of each other. We will get through this together. We’ll be back in touch with you again soon.
