Special Resolution Gives Thanks to Board of Regents’ Employees

 

PIERRE, S.D. – A special resolution adopted Thursday by the South Dakota Board of Regents recognized faculty and staff of the regents’ system for their efforts in response to COVID-19.

 

Understanding that employees will continue to adjust dynamically to an evolving public health challenge, the resolution expresses “its appreciation and gratitude to the faculty and staff across the South Dakota Board of Regents’ system for their dedication, support, and willingness to adapt during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

 

The resolution acknowledged that, even with dramatic changes in the spring and summer semesters, public university classes continued online so that students might complete their degrees or stay on track for completion. The special schools also quickly adjusted to meet their students’ needs by delivering instruction and support remotely.

 

Earlier this month, the regents announced a commitment to on-campus operations this fall, with

a priority to balance the significant value of face-to-face teaching and learning with an equal responsibility to protect community health and safety.
