Coronavirus Guidance for Students in CHHS Degree Programs
The College of Health and Human Services knows that this is a difficult time for students and their families. We are here to help. We are committed to ensuring that students can stay on time to their degree even as we meet the challenges of COVID-19. We urge all students to work closely with their advisor and course faculty to stay on track to complete their degree. Stay up-to-date by visiting the ISU COVID-19 and Fall Initiatives websites including an Electronic Guide for Students and Families.
As we start the fall semester, Indiana State University is committed to maintaining as much of our traditional campus instruction as possible. To ensure adequate social distancing our college is adjusting how we deliver some classes. Most 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. In addition, everyone will be required to wear a face covering in all indoor instructional and public spaces. If you have questions about your fall schedule, please contact your academic advisor or the Associate Dean for Student Affairs, Dr. Peggy Weber.
To ensure students’ safety and wellbeing in clinical, fieldwork, or 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 should use necessary preventive actions including: stay home if you are sick, avoid contact with people who are sick; avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth; covering cough or sneeze with a tissue and throwing tissue away; practice social distancing, wear a cloth face cover; and wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

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.”
Passionate about patient healthI wanted to advance my nursing career as a nurse practitioner so I could practice at an expert level and provide the best care possible to my patients.
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.”
