COVID-19 Support

Transition to Remote Instruction Executive Committee:
Jennifer Golightly & Jane Murphy (co-chairs), Traci Freeman, Drew Cavin, Steve Lawson

In close collaboration with colleagues across campus, the Transition Team has created a tiered model of support in this emergency transition to remote instruction. The central hub for these resources is a Canvas site. You may self-enroll here: In this challenging period, we strive to ground our work in Crown's longstanding priorities of equitable teaching and learning and faculty and student wellbeing.

For more resources on distance teaching, visit the Teaching & Learning Resources page on the Coronavirus Updates & Resources page.


The Colket Center will be offering remote academic support services, including online tutoring, learning assistants, and adjunct courses. Students will be accessing tutoring through online platforms.
