As we prepare for the end of the semester, final exams and Commencement, I invite all of you to let us know what BMCC can do to help you prepare for Fall 2021.
On Tuesday, May 18 at 3 p.m., BMCC will be hosting a College-wide Open Forum to give students, faculty and staff a safe space to share your thoughts and points of view related to the pandemic and its impact on everyone’s lives at home, at work and at school.
As you know, the BMCC Buildings and Grounds team continues to take important measures to keep our campus clean and healthy: sanitizing classrooms, offices and various spaces on campus; improving air ventilation in classrooms and offices; and ensuring the availability of hand-sanitizing stations and masks on campus. We remind you to use the Everbridge App and follow the protocols under the guidance of the CDC, CUNY and the State of New York.
On May 10th, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that all students attending in-person classes at all CUNY schools will be required to get COVID-19 vaccinations before the fall semester. With this in mind, I encourage everyone to #VAXUPCUNY and get vaccinated. Getting the coronavirus vaccine is the single most important step we can take to protect ourselves and loved ones from COVID-19. All New Yorkers 16 and older are eligible to receive the vaccine. Find locations to make an appointment and get the vaccine.
The May 18th Open Forum will provide everyone with the opportunity to be informed about our college’s momentum as we step forward into a brighter future. As an institution, we have been through a lot, and we must continue to stand strong and take care of each other. Please register HERE to attend the May 18th College-wide Open Forum.
Please continue to visit the BMCC Re-imagining website for more updates. I hope to see you on May 18.
