Announcement: Adams State introduces Grizzly Persistence Aid to assist students and support their degree attainment. The University is establishing a new program of emergency financial support called Grizzly Persistence Aid to help students meet unexpected costs and needs due to the COVID-19 pandemic and to help ensure Adams State students persist in the pursuit of their degree. Adams State has been allocated $784,457 in immediate student emergency relief funds through the federal CARES Act. It has also secured support from other partners, including the El Pomar Foundation and the Project Success Emergency Aid Program, and will combine these funds to establish the Grizzly Persistence Aid program. In addition to direct emergency financial aid support, Adams State is working quickly and carefully to assist students and families with housing and meal adjustments. The University is evaluating a prorated adjustment for unused housing and dining charges for the Spring 2020 semester for students who lived on campus. Adams State is taking into account a student’s financial aid awards, including scholarships, to determine adjustments on student accounts. Adams State students can learn more about this critical support and can apply to receive Grizzly Persistence Aid by visiting our web site: https://www.adams.edu/students/grizzly-persistence-aid/ #ThisIsAdamsState #GrizzliesPersist

Grizzlies, we miss you. Please read the latest update on Adams State's response to COVID19. Beginning Monday we will finish the spring semester online via Blackboard instruction. All classes will be completed on Blackboard. We have Blackboard instructions and resource tools and a lot more information on our COVID19 campus resource page found here: https://www.adams.edu/police/safety/coronavirus/ #ThisIsAdamsState
Announcement: In response to the public health emergency related to COVID-19 and to ensure the well-being of our campus community, the community of Alamosa and the greater San Luis Valley, Adams State has made the decision to temporarily move all classes to our online course management system Blackboard for a period of two weeks (March 23 through April 3), immediately following Spring Break. Adams State has no knowledge of any cases of COVID-19 associated with our residence halls or with the University. However, Adams State will do its part to avoid any unintended spread of the virus by taking the following immediate steps: All classes will be delivered online via Blackboard beginning March 23 through April 3. Additionally, all students are asked not to return to campus immediately after Spring Break and to meet academic requirements via Blackboard through April 3. Students who receive approval to remain on campus will also receive instruction via Blackboard and must prepare for limited on-campus activities, services, and interactions, including limited housing and food service. The campus will remain open during this two-week period but will limit visitors to campus by suspending campus tours and visits beginning Spring Break week, Monday, March 16, through April 3. Adams State will also limit external events on campus beginning March 16. The continuity of instruction for our students is mission-critical for Adams State. We do not want any of our students to be stressed about finding a place to live during this Blackboard-only instructional period. Any student who needs to remain in campus housing should contact the Office of Housing at 719-587-7227. In the coming days, we will be working through the many questions that will emerge from these immediate actions to provide additional guidance and clarity. Please send questions to [email protected] and stay up to date on the adams.edu COVID-19 web page: https://www.adams.edu/police/safety/coronavirus/.

Dear Adams State Campus Community: With the health and well being of all campus members our highest priority, I wanted to update you on how Adams State is responding to COVID-19, or the new coronavirus. To date, there have been no cases reported on campus or in the San Luis Valley, and Adams State continues to operate normally. As you know, on Tuesday Gov. Polis declared a state of emergency for Colorado. The governor’s state of emergency declaration does not impact the Adams State campus; however, it does make federal dollars and federal resources more readily available to the state should Colorado request or need additional federal support. We also are aware that at 5 p.m. Wednesday the governor will hold another press conference to update the status of COVID-19 in Colorado. We anticipate the governor will provide guidelines for higher education institutions in the state. It should also be noted that testing is just beginning and we can expect to hear about more cases in Colorado and across the country. Any contingency plans directly impacting Adams State will be communicated to you directly through email notices and through the Campus Alert System. Adams State’s COVID-19 resource page will also have the most up-to-date information, including any impacts to campus. You can visit the page here: https://www.adams.edu/police/safety/coronavirus/. The best prevention for COVID-19 continues to be what we should practice every year during flu season: wash your hands often, cough into your elbow, avoid touching your face and stay home if you’re sick. As we approach Spring Break, we urge students, staff, and faculty to closely follow all travel alerts and strongly discourage travel to areas the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have identified as Level 2 or 3 risks (Italy, China, Iran, South Korea, Japan.) Travel alerts may also change quickly and we encourage all campus members to be flexible in their plans. If you know you’ve been exposed or if you exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 virus, students should immediately notify Vice President for Student Affairs Ken Marquez before returning to campus, and faculty and staff should immediately notify Tracy Rogers in Human Resources. As the COVID-19 situation evolves, please anticipate further updates. Thank you, and please have a safe Spring Break. President Lovell

Dr. Buchanan, who brings more than 25 years of experience in higher education, will join Adams State on March 1.

"I am excited about joining the amazing faculty, staff, and students at Adams State University," Buchanan said. "I was so impressed by the student-centered culture at Adams State and the commitment of the faculty, staff, and administration to ensure that every student can be successful.
