Hope locates itself in the premises that we don’t know what will happen and that in the spaciousness of uncertainty is room to act.
The COVID-19 pandemic is utterly transforming lives, organizations, and communities each day and everywhere. Educational systems at all levels are being challenged to adapt quickly to these new and sometimes harsh realities.
Antioch College has already taken measures to safeguard its students, employees, and broader community from the immediate spread of COVID-19. And, in the context of the rapidly evolving circumstances, the College is taking further steps to respond while continuing to deliver our unique educational mission.
Like institutions across the country, Antioch College has temporarily curtailed on-campus programs and transitioned to distance learning. These changes have resulted in the need to adjust our work accordingly, including placing some of our employees on furloughs and asking some others to take reductions in compensation.
These actions allow the College to focus attention on the educational and individual needs of our students while navigating the crucial demands of the present moment.
Even as the College delivers academic programs at a distance through spring quarter, it continues to provide housing for a limited number of students for whom Antioch is their primary home.
The Office of Admission and Financial Aid is actively working with prospective and admitted students on fall 2020 enrollment. Admissions counselors and faculty read applications for admission on a rolling basis.
The Board of Trustees and the entire Antioch College community remains dedicated to the College’s mission and landmark values. We have confidence the steps we are taking will allow us to weather this storm and we are especially grateful for the continued support of alumni and friends—an Antioch education is needed now more than ever.
