Dear Campus Community,
Pending approval by the Board of Regents, Northern New Mexico College will be extending our Spring Break for students until Sunday, April 5, in order to ensure the health and safety of our campus community during the Covid-19 outbreak. During the next three weeks, leadership and support staff will work with faculty to prepare them for the transition to a distance-learning format.
Starting on Monday, March 16, Northern will also implement a minimal physical footprint on both of its campuses. All non-faculty staff members are directed to coordinate with their supervisors to determine specific work requirements in alignment with their position. Supervisors are directed to consult with senior administration in order to determine essential staffing needs. Any college employee in a high-risk category for the Covid-19 virus (pre-existing condition, advanced age, pregnancy, etc.) is strongly encouraged to inform their supervisor immediately so that they can accommodate you.
Please continue to monitor email closely and to check our website at www.nnmc.edu for any updates. Anyone with questions is also encouraged to email firstname.lastname@example.org. Students with specific questions or concerns please contact Don Appirarius, Assistant Provost at (505) 692-4016.
Thank you for your help in overcoming the effects of this pandemic in our community. We remain, as always, dedicated to the success of our students, our College, and all of Northern New Mexico.
Richard J. Bailey, Jr., PhD
President, Northern New Mexico College
