COBI's GUIDE TO COVID-19 AND THE SPRING 2020 SEMESTER

GUIDELINES FOR SPRING 2020 GRADING PROCESS


CLASSES

College of Business and Innovation classes will continue with remote delivery through the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester.

Many classes will be using the Blackboard platform and may include "real-time" classes at your regularly scheduled class time through Blackboard Collaborate Ultra. Some faculty and student services offices may also use Webex for classes or student conferences.

In preparation for the transition to online learning, assess your technology to make sure that you have what you need to participate in online learning. Use UToledo Online resources that allow you to check your browser and computer. See below for helpful tech support and remote access information:

  • University IT Help Desk - Internet access, mobile connectivity, or hardware and software issues

SPRING COMMENCEMENT 2020

Due to the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Spring commencement ceremony planned for May 9 in the Glass Bowl is canceled and all college convocations and honors programs planned for April and May also are canceled. Graduating students are invited to participate in the University’s Fall commencement planned for Dec. 12, 2020 in Savage Arena.

BUILDING ACCESS

The College of Business and Innovation buildings (Stranahan Hall and the Savage & Associates Complex for Business Learning and Engagement) are closed, as the campus has shifted to remote work for the remainder of the Spring semester, effective March 18, 2020. Other than essential personnel, card swipe access will no longer work to enter College of Business and Innovation buildings, computer labs and classrooms.

IMMEDIATE JOB OPENINGS DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Career Services recognizes that many students, alumni and community members have experienced a reduction in work hours or have lost their employment due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, we will continue to monitor local part-time employment opportunities and share them on this website. Rocket students and alumni can also access Handshake to search for internships, part-time and full-time positions that are local, regional and national.

I have learned so much from the BCP and have received so many awesome opportunities! Through the COBI Job-Fair I got an internship with Otis Elevator, the biggest elevator company in the world! I feel ready for this due to all of the training and professional development offered by the University.
