Coronavirus Guidance for Students in CHHS Degree Programs
The faculty and staff in the College of Health and Human Services appreciate that students and their families have had to overcome many obstacles associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. We are here to help! Please stay in touch with your faculty and advisors so that we can support you and ensure you can graduate on time. Stay up-to-date by visiting the ISU Back on Track Plan. All CHHS students are eligible to receive services to support your health and wellbeing. Please go to the Dean of Students website to find out what is available.
Indiana State University is committed to delivering your courses to ensure you have the best experience possible. In many cases, this means attending on campus instruction. Some classes will be delivered through a mix of in-class, live streaming (sometimes called synchronous), and online instruction (sometimes called asynchronous). If your course was already online, it will remain online. If you have questions about your courses, please review your syllabi, contact your instructor, academic advisor or the Associate Dean for Student Affairs, Dr. Peggy Weber.
To ensure students’ safety and wellbeing in clinical, fieldwork, and internships, students are expected to communicate regularly with their faculty, receive training and education in the appropriate prevention measures, and wear appropriate protective equipment. Please communicate to your faculty any concerns that you have. If you are not sure who to contact, please call the Dean’s Office 812-237-3683 or email us.
All students must follow ISU policies for preventing transmission of COVID-19 including: wearing a face covering; practicing social distancing; staying home if you are sick and avoiding contact with people who are sick; avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth; covering cough or sneeze with a tissue and throwing tissue away; and washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. All students must complete the daily Sycamore Symptom Assessment Survey if they plan to be on campus or at clinical, fieldwork, or internship sites on or off campus. Students who become ill must contact Student Affairs to report their illness, cooperate with contact tracing and quarantine or isolate if instructed by a contact tracer to do so. Students in quarantine or isolation will be allowed to continue their classes via distance.
We highly recommend that eligible students get vaccinated for COVID-19 as soon as possible. Being fully vaccinated is the best way to ensure that your academic experience will not be interrupted by the need to quarantine or because of illness. Being vaccinated is also the best way to ensure that you do not accidentally transmit the virus to patients or clients with whom you are working. More information about how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 may be found on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention information website.

Combining two passions“Beings a professor is the best job in the world – because you get to learn a lot about something you love, research about something you love, and then you get to go out and teach people.”
Applying personal experiences to the classroom“I use a student-centered teaching approach in the classroom, which simply means that students are encouraged to be part of the discussion,” she said. “I do a lot of hands-on activities and discussions that hopefully help students to grasp the material and apply it.”
