SPRING 2021 CLASSES WILL REMAIN IN REMOTE MODE
Because we remain committed to the safety of the Simmons College community, and because COVID-19 case numbers have risen in Kentucky and around the nation, Simmons College of Kentucky will continue providing remote instruction for the 2021 spring semester.We have missed the personal connections and fellowship with our Simmons family on campus, and we know that many students and faculty have been challenged by the weight of remote education. But with COVID-19 hitting Black communities harder than any other demographic, we simply could not run the risk of returning to in-person instruction at this time.
If you or someone you know would like to talk to someone or need additional resources to help you through this challenging time, please call or text Simmons’ Vice President for Student Services, Phyllis Clark, via her personal cell (502-599-8049), and she will connect you to the new resources we are offering to assist our students at this time.
