IUPUI Fall 2020 Plans

We can't wait for you to join us on campus in the fall

After thorough examination of options and impacts by leaders from across the campus, Chancellor Nasser Paydar has announced that the Fall 2020 semester will take place with a blended combination of face-to-face and online instruction. We can't wait to welcome you home to IUPUI this August!

Final logistical plans are currently being made to welcome our students, both new and returning, to IUPUI this fall. In the meantime, we've provided answers to some frequently asked questions the Class of 2024 has been asking. 

If you're an incoming freshman, now is a great time to commit to IUPUI before our June 1 enrollment deposit deadline, if you haven't already done so. If you have committed, but still have some questions, we invite you to sign up for an individualized admissions counseling session with our staff.

Recording of the New Jags Q&A, which took place on Tuesday, June 9, 2020.

Description of the video:

1
00:00:03,520 --> 00:00:05,330
Hello, everybody.

2
00:00:05,330 --> 00:00:08,190
Welcome to the New Jaguar Question and
Answer.

3
00:00:08,190 --> 00:00:13,049
My name's Errol Wint, I'm the Director of
Undergraduate Admissions here at IUPUI.

4
00:00:13,049 --> 00:00:16,770
And we're really excited that you
all decided to join us today.

5
00:00:16,770 --> 00:00:19,510
A little bit about myself as I'm
gonna be the facilitator for

6
00:00:19,510 --> 00:00:24,240
today, and
I'm very excited to be able to do so.

7
00:00:24,240 --> 00:00:28,390
I'm originally from Kentucky,
came to Indianapolis because I was

8
00:00:28,390 --> 00:00:33,250
excited to be able to take on a job
here at IUPUI, an institution that has

9
00:00:33,250 --> 00:00:36,750
been on the rise the past decade, and
has been doing some amazing things.

10
00:00:36,750 --> 00:00:41,000
In my last two years here have been
incredible, and I'm really passionate

11
00:00:41,000 --> 00:00:46,220
about what IUPUI means to this community,
and really the IUPUI difference.

12
00:00:46,220 --> 00:00:51,220
And so we're really excited to be
able to engage with you today.

13
00:00:51,220 --> 00:00:52,220
First and foremost,

14
00:00:52,220 --> 00:00:55,810
I wanna take the moment to congratulate
all the seniors that are on this call.

15
00:00:55,810 --> 00:00:59,920
You all have endured some really
unique and amazing times,

16
00:00:59,920 --> 00:01:01,400
and we're all very proud of you.

17
00:01:01,400 --> 00:01:05,509
And we want to make sure that we acknowledge
your tremendous accomplishment in terms of

18
00:01:05,509 --> 00:01:06,970
making it through your senior year.

19
00:01:06,970 --> 00:01:10,170
And making it through your senior
year admits the challenges that have

20
00:01:10,170 --> 00:01:12,200
been brought about by COVID-19.

21
00:01:12,200 --> 00:01:15,899
And to the parents as well,
we wanna thank you.

22
00:01:15,899 --> 00:01:20,609
So when it comes to today,
we're really our goal is to do two things.

23
00:01:20,609 --> 00:01:26,819
Number one, with the recent
announcement of our fall restart plans,

24
00:01:26,819 --> 00:01:30,209
and you all eager to know what your
college experience is gonna look like.

25
00:01:30,209 --> 00:01:35,830
We wanna engage a panel of our top leaders
here at IUPUI to help you number one,

26
00:01:35,830 --> 00:01:38,759
visualize the campus experience at IUPUI.

27
00:01:38,759 --> 00:01:41,929
The second thing that we want you to
do is to help you understand what those

28
00:01:41,929 --> 00:01:47,249
next steps are, so you're prepared to
enter in the fall come August 24th.

29
00:01:47,249 --> 00:01:51,099
And so we have a panel of
some amazing individuals.

30
00:01:51,099 --> 00:01:54,630
Number one, we've got our leader,
Chancellor Nasser Paydar,

31
00:01:54,630 --> 00:01:59,759
who's going to bring introductory
comments, and welcome to all of you.

32
00:01:59,759 --> 00:02:01,560
From there we've got three panelists, Dr.

33
00:02:01,560 --> 00:02:04,899
Boyd Bradshaw, who is the institution's
Chief Enrollment Officer.

34
00:02:04,899 --> 00:02:09,399
He's gonna talk about financial aid and
the admissions process.

35
00:02:09,399 --> 00:02:10,869
Then we have Dr.

36
00:02:10,869 --> 00:02:14,940
Jay Gladden, who is the leader of our
Division of Undergraduate Education.

37
00:02:14,940 --> 00:02:19,900
He'll chat with you about summer
bridge week as well as orientation.

38
00:02:19,900 --> 00:02:22,960
And then we have Dr. Eric Weldy
from our Student Affairs office,

39
00:02:22,960 --> 00:02:27,780
who is going to engage well about the
student experience and housing and more.

40
00:02:27,780 --> 00:02:33,140
So the themes that we gathered from you,
and we want you to know as we

41
00:02:33,140 --> 00:02:37,010
have gone though this journey together,
we've been paying attention to your

42
00:02:37,010 --> 00:02:41,810
calls to our office, the email inquiries
you've had, the Facebook 2024 group.

43
00:02:41,810 --> 00:02:45,420
And we've not only brought together a list
of really those core thing that we know

44
00:02:45,420 --> 00:02:50,340
you want answers to, we also gave you
the opportunity to submit questions.

45
00:02:50,340 --> 00:02:53,910
So that we are able to
answer those as we go along.

46
00:02:53,910 --> 00:02:58,371
You'll also have the chance during this
webinar to right here at the bottom, where

47
00:02:58,371 --> 00:03:03,090
you where you see the Q&A button, to submit
live questions so that we can submit.

48
00:03:03,090 --> 00:03:05,310
Now I wanna be honest with you.

49
00:03:05,310 --> 00:03:09,230
There were a lot of questions, and we're
gonna try our best to really bucket them,

50
00:03:09,230 --> 00:03:12,980
and answer as many as possible
within the next hour, or so.

51
00:03:12,980 --> 00:03:15,530
But you will have the chance and
the opportunity to schedule

52
00:03:15,530 --> 00:03:18,790
an individualized meeting at the end
with one of our admissions counselors,

53
00:03:18,790 --> 00:03:22,430
to have a follow up discussion for
anything that went unanswered.

54
00:03:22,430 --> 00:03:25,210
And any questions that you post below,

55
00:03:25,210 --> 00:03:30,040
we're also going to do some email follow
up to you, and send you resources.

56
00:03:30,040 --> 00:03:34,990
So the flow of the program
is really about you.

57
00:03:34,990 --> 00:03:39,120
We want to make sure that we're answering
as many questions that you have.

58
00:03:39,120 --> 00:03:44,960
Get you really excited about coming
to the IUPUI in the the near future.

59
00:03:44,960 --> 00:03:48,380
Recognize that we have many of
our family members in the IUPUI

60
00:03:48,380 --> 00:03:51,260
community that are here in
this webinar right now.

61
00:03:51,260 --> 00:03:55,910
And we wanna make sure that that you feel
comfortable about what the next steps are.

62
00:03:55,910 --> 00:03:59,560
And where we don't have answers,
we'll be committed to ensure that we get

63
00:03:59,560 --> 00:04:05,910
you the next steps, so that you feel
comfortable about coming here in the fall.

64
00:04:05,910 --> 00:04:06,910
So without further ado,

65
00:04:06,910 --> 00:04:16,660
we would like to bring in our chancellor,
Nasser Paydar to give welcome remarks.

66
00:04:16,660 --> 00:04:19,660
And I think Chancellor Paydar, you're on.

67
00:04:19,660 --> 00:04:21,039
>> Well, thank you.

68
00:04:21,039 --> 00:04:26,009
Let me begin by congratulating all
of you for being admitted to IUPUI.

69
00:04:26,009 --> 00:04:30,129
I want to officially welcome the Class of
2024,

70
00:04:30,129 --> 00:04:32,150
IUPUI Jaguars.

71
00:04:32,150 --> 00:04:35,150
This must be an exciting
time in your lives,

72
00:04:35,150 --> 00:04:39,909
even with the uncertainty we
are all facing these days.

73
00:04:39,909 --> 00:04:43,900
This is the time for
you to explore pathways to your future.

74
00:04:43,900 --> 00:04:50,999
And it's okay by the way, not to be
sure what major you want to get into.

75
00:04:50,999 --> 00:04:53,931
And you should make the decision
in the first year, but

76
00:04:53,931 --> 00:04:59,050
IUPUI is one of the most comprehensive
campuses inside of Indiana.

77
00:04:59,050 --> 00:05:00,600
So you have many choices.

78
00:05:00,600 --> 00:05:04,460
You're on a campus with lots
of choices in degree programs.

79
00:05:04,460 --> 00:05:08,600
And you're also on a campus
with the most diverse student body,

80
00:05:08,600 --> 00:05:12,860
because we are committed to
diversity on this campus.

81
00:05:12,860 --> 00:05:17,900
Speaking about diversity, let me say
now how deeply, we support the call for

82
00:05:17,900 --> 00:05:24,389
action against racist violence
that has swept the country.

83
00:05:24,389 --> 00:05:25,389
At this point,

84
00:05:25,389 --> 00:05:29,659
let me share with you a little bit
about the campus you're admitted to.

85
00:05:29,659 --> 00:05:34,439
We have 30,000 students,
22,000 undergraduates, and

86
00:05:34,439 --> 00:05:38,199
that leaves us 8,000, or
so at the graduate level.

87
00:05:38,199 --> 00:05:42,620
We have students from all
Indiana counties, 50 states, and

88
00:05:42,620 --> 00:05:47,319
144 countries at IUPUI.

89
00:05:47,319 --> 00:05:51,490
As I mentioned, we are one of the most
comprehensive universities in the state of

90
00:05:51,490 --> 00:05:57,139
Indiana, with over 500 degree
programs right here in Indianapolis.

91
00:05:57,139 --> 00:06:01,970
And we have outstanding
academic programs.

92
00:06:01,970 --> 00:06:05,499
Some of them are very unique and
the first in the nation, so

93
00:06:05,499 --> 00:06:09,629
we have the only School of
Dentistry in the state of Indiana.

94
00:06:09,629 --> 00:06:14,710
The first School of Philanthropy,
the first School of Informatics and

95
00:06:14,710 --> 00:06:18,469
Computing right here was
established in Indianapolis.

96
00:06:18,469 --> 00:06:22,779
We have the first and the only bachelor's
degree in Motor Sports Engineering.

97
00:06:22,779 --> 00:06:25,430
The list goes on, we have outstanding and

98
00:06:25,430 --> 00:06:28,570
one of the largest science
programs on our campus.

99
00:06:28,570 --> 00:06:34,930
It's a very unique campus with all sorts
of outstanding opportunities for students.

100
00:06:34,930 --> 00:06:36,639
And we have some of the biggest.

101
00:06:36,639 --> 00:06:39,139
We have the largest school of
medicine in the country here,

102
00:06:39,139 --> 00:06:42,539
we have the second largest
school of nursing here.

103
00:06:42,539 --> 00:06:47,250
One of the largest engineering and
technology programs in the state is

104
00:06:47,250 --> 00:06:48,650
right here at IUPUI.

105
00:06:48,650 --> 00:06:52,620
So
we are proud of our many programs, and

106
00:06:52,620 --> 00:06:53,870
we are proud of our students.

107
00:06:53,870 --> 00:06:59,180
And we
are delighted to have you on our campus.

108
00:06:59,180 --> 00:07:04,360
Now, as you face one of the biggest
transitions in your life,

109
00:07:04,360 --> 00:07:08,169
starting college,
it's important to endeavor to connect

110
00:07:08,169 --> 00:07:11,669
with people in meaningful ways,
classmates.

111
00:07:11,669 --> 00:07:13,569
We have hundreds

112
00:07:13,569 --> 00:07:19,669
of organizations on our campus and
we want you to get in there and

113
00:07:19,669 --> 00:07:24,619
connect with them while maintaining
social distancing, of course.

114
00:07:24,619 --> 00:07:28,110
This fall is going to be different for
all of us,

115
00:07:28,110 --> 00:07:36,050
we'll offer a blend of online and
face to face classes at IUPUI.

116
00:07:36,050 --> 00:07:39,750
We have been delivering online
programs since 1989, we are experts.

117
00:07:39,750 --> 00:07:42,699
We have the highest number
of online programs.

118
00:07:42,699 --> 00:07:47,589
We've always had it among all
Indiana University campuses.

119
00:07:47,589 --> 00:07:53,599
Now, while we expect most of you want to be
on campus this fall, we'll be offering

120
00:07:53,599 --> 00:07:59,699
online courses for of you who wish
not to come to the campus this fall.

121
00:07:59,699 --> 00:08:04,180
So there are choices for
students for on site or

122
00:08:04,180 --> 00:08:07,400
online programs here at IUPUI.

123
00:08:07,400 --> 00:08:12,649
For those of you who want to be on campus,
we have worked very hard in creating and

124
00:08:12,649 --> 00:08:17,680
preparing for this fall for you,
for our faculty, and staff.

125
00:08:17,680 --> 00:08:23,060
We have consulted with health and
medical experts.

126
00:08:23,060 --> 00:08:27,460
We are following local, state,
and national guidelines.

127
00:08:27,460 --> 00:08:33,180
But more importantly,
we have an agreement with IU Health

128
00:08:33,180 --> 00:08:37,770
for testing all of our students
as there is a need for it.

129
00:08:37,770 --> 00:08:42,180
The contract is there, all you need to
do is go to a website when you become a

130
00:08:42,180 --> 00:08:44,380
student, if you need to check your health.

131
00:08:44,380 --> 00:08:50,830
We have thought of many things to
keep our campus and students safe.

132
00:08:50,830 --> 00:08:56,010
That ultimate goal of this institution is
to educate our students in

133
00:08:56,010 --> 00:09:02,080
a manner that you feel comfortable with
while keeping our faculty, staff safe.

134
00:09:02,080 --> 00:09:07,250
I know there are some parents
in the program this evening.

135
00:09:07,250 --> 00:09:13,730
As a parent of two sons myself, I always
wanted three things for for my kids.

136
00:09:13,730 --> 00:09:20,160
I wanted them to be healthy, happy,
and get an outstanding education.

137
00:09:20,160 --> 00:09:25,210
And at IUPUI,
we will take care of your kid,

138
00:09:25,210 --> 00:09:28,240
your children, your students.

139
00:09:28,240 --> 00:09:32,240
And we're ready to take them on and and

140
00:09:32,240 --> 00:09:37,760
move them through the education in
a safe manner this coming fall.

141
00:09:37,760 --> 00:09:43,670
Now, I want to again
congratulate all of you and

142
00:09:43,670 --> 00:09:48,100
we'll work very hard to make sure that
the freshman year is one of the best years

143
00:09:48,100 --> 00:09:49,340
of your life.

144
00:09:49,340 --> 00:09:54,210
Before I pass it back to
Errol, I want to thank you for being here.

145
00:09:54,210 --> 00:09:58,930
I'm going to stay online and
listen to your questions and

146
00:09:58,930 --> 00:10:03,900
your comments, to understand what
are the things that you have in mind.

147
00:10:03,900 --> 00:10:05,270
Again, congratulations.

148
00:10:05,270 --> 00:10:08,130
And thank you very much, Errol.

149
00:10:08,130 --> 00:10:11,240
>> Chancellor Paydar, thank you so much.

150
00:10:11,240 --> 00:10:16,560
I'm pleased to now pass it along
to my direct supervisor Dr.

151
00:10:16,560 --> 00:10:18,190
Boyd Bradshaw.

152
00:10:18,190 --> 00:10:21,380
As Chancellor Paydar
said, as soon as we met to make

153
00:10:21,380 --> 00:10:25,870
the decision to transition all
of our programs virtually and

154
00:10:25,870 --> 00:10:30,330
engage you all with trying to answer
questions as best as possible,

155
00:10:30,330 --> 00:10:34,620
Dr Boyd Bradshaw has been right there,
trying to get the answers for us and

156
00:10:34,620 --> 00:10:38,640
making sure that you all feel
comfortable as we go through this process.

157
00:10:38,640 --> 00:10:43,090
So I'm happy that he's here to
share some remarks with you all.

158
00:10:43,090 --> 00:10:44,580
Dr. Bradshaw.

159
00:10:44,580 --> 00:10:49,330
>> Well said, a great pleasure as
Chancellor Paydar mentioned to be with you

160
00:10:49,330 --> 00:10:55,930
here and I just want to say congratulations
and welcome to the IUPUI family.

161
00:10:55,930 --> 00:11:02,570
It is truly an amazing time to be
a student and it's all about change,

162
00:11:02,570 --> 00:11:07,400
and I feel really good about the hard
work that's happening behind the scenes

163
00:11:07,400 --> 00:11:10,370
to prepare for your arrival in the fall.

164
00:11:10,370 --> 00:11:14,490
We also realize also that many of you are
at different stages, some of you are still

165
00:11:14,490 --> 00:11:18,710
debating whether you're going to enroll
in the fall, some of you have made that

166
00:11:18,710 --> 00:11:19,710
decision.

167
00:11:19,710 --> 00:11:22,710
You're wanting to know what
it's going to be like to live on campus?

168
00:11:22,710 --> 00:11:25,610
What is the classroom
environment going to be like?

169
00:11:25,610 --> 00:11:29,480
What is dining options
going to be like when I arrive?

170
00:11:29,480 --> 00:11:34,260
And what we're trying to do is answer as
many questions as possible as we work

171
00:11:34,260 --> 00:11:35,780
through this Q&A and today.

172
00:11:35,780 --> 00:11:38,010
And as Errol
mentioned, we know there are gonna be some

173
00:11:38,010 --> 00:11:41,770
questions that don't get answered, but
we've come up with ways to do that and

174
00:11:41,770 --> 00:11:45,680
to provide you the information
that you will receive later on.

175
00:11:45,680 --> 00:11:50,260
My sole responsibility to IUPUI is to make
sure students are successful in working

176
00:11:50,260 --> 00:11:53,640
with my team from the time that
a student raises their hand and

177
00:11:53,640 --> 00:11:56,560
say I'm interested,
to the time that they graduate.

178
00:11:56,560 --> 00:12:00,000
And my offices provide a lot
of services to students,

179
00:12:00,000 --> 00:12:04,980
the Office of Financial Services, it
provides financial aid and scholarships.

180
00:12:04,980 --> 00:12:07,780
The Office of Undergraduate Admissions,
who are not only just recruiting students

181
00:12:07,780 --> 00:12:08,780
but

182
00:12:08,780 --> 00:12:09,780
also helping in the transition.

183
00:12:09,780 --> 00:12:13,640
And the Office of the Registrar,
who basically is the brains, so

184
00:12:13,640 --> 00:12:16,780
I would say, behind the operation,
what happens in the classroom and

185
00:12:16,780 --> 00:12:19,230
making sure that the classes
are on a schedule,

186
00:12:19,230 --> 00:12:22,990
and that we have an academic catalog,
and many many more things.

187
00:12:22,990 --> 00:12:26,550
And so, we feel like we're ready and

188
00:12:26,550 --> 00:12:30,730
the decision to be open in
the fall both on campus and

189
00:12:30,730 --> 00:12:35,050
also in a virtual environment, I think
would be wonderful as we move forward.

190
00:12:35,050 --> 00:12:39,830
So again welcome, and Errol we'll shoot
it back to you to start the Q&A.

191
00:12:39,830 --> 00:12:42,510
>> All right.

192
00:12:42,510 --> 00:12:47,010
So again, just a quick reminder
of what the process is gonna be.

193
00:12:47,010 --> 00:12:50,530
Right at the bottom, you'll have
the opportunity to submit questions live,

194
00:12:50,530 --> 00:12:53,700
we have a team reviewing it, and
then they'll pass them along to me.

195
00:12:53,700 --> 00:12:55,450
So if you see me look over to the right,

196
00:12:55,450 --> 00:12:57,650
it's not because I'm not
paying attention to you.

197
00:12:57,650 --> 00:13:01,190
I'm making sure that we're
sifting through those questions.

198
00:13:01,190 --> 00:13:06,110
And then, also keep in mind that any
questions that do not get answered,

199
00:13:06,110 --> 00:13:11,830
there will be an opportunity for
you to schedule a individualized

200
00:13:11,830 --> 00:13:14,420
admissions counseling appointment
with one of our team members.

201
00:13:14,420 --> 00:13:17,680
And we'll talk about
that at the end as well.

202
00:13:17,680 --> 00:13:19,240
And we're gonna hop
right into the question.

203
00:13:19,240 --> 00:13:22,280
So the six things that we
really gathered that you all

204
00:13:22,280 --> 00:13:26,350
from your house questions are,
housing, orientation, and

205
00:13:26,350 --> 00:13:30,990
Summer Bridge week, financial aid and
scholarships, tuition and

206
00:13:30,990 --> 00:13:35,660
fees, fall instruction methods,
and then fall student experience.

207
00:13:35,660 --> 00:13:38,940
You'll notice I put two concepts
together in one for some of them,

208
00:13:38,940 --> 00:13:41,680
so that may not have sounded like six but
I promise it was.

209
00:13:41,680 --> 00:13:44,130
We are going to hit all of those, okay?

210
00:13:44,130 --> 00:13:48,080
And we are going to start with really
the hot topic that we've seen from

211
00:13:48,080 --> 00:13:51,420
you all in terms of
the fall instruction.

212
00:13:51,420 --> 00:13:54,780
So our first question.

213
00:13:54,780 --> 00:13:58,400
Our first question in terms of fall
instruction has to do with the way that

214
00:13:58,400 --> 00:14:00,390
the fall is going to look.

215
00:14:00,390 --> 00:14:04,820
So, what will attending
classes look like in the fall?

216
00:14:04,820 --> 00:14:08,430
And will there be a mix of in person and
online days?

217
00:14:08,430 --> 00:14:12,689
I'm gonna pass that to Dr.
Jay Gladden to take, Dr. Gladden.

218
00:14:12,689 --> 00:14:16,840
>> Thanks, Errol, and
good evening to everybody out there.

219
00:14:16,840 --> 00:14:17,920
A little background on myself.

220
00:14:17,920 --> 00:14:21,330
I've been at IUPUI for
almost 11 years now.

221
00:14:21,330 --> 00:14:25,050
And in my work I oversee orientation,
bridge week,

222
00:14:25,050 --> 00:14:29,250
the entire first year experience,
academic and career development

223
00:14:29,250 --> 00:14:35,280
on campus, as well as a number of peer
mentoring programs, the Honors College,

224
00:14:35,280 --> 00:14:39,570
and our institute for engaged learning
that strives to create as many neat and

225
00:14:39,570 --> 00:14:43,370
deep enhanced on-line learning
experiences for our students.

226
00:14:43,370 --> 00:14:45,690
To your question, Errol, specifically,
what will the fall look like?

227
00:14:45,690 --> 00:14:50,050
Well, as Chancellor Paydar mentioned, we
are very focused on ensuring the safety of

228
00:14:50,050 --> 00:14:52,800
our community, that's first and foremost.

229
00:14:52,800 --> 00:14:55,790
And certainly,
the classrooms will look different.

230
00:14:55,790 --> 00:14:58,310
There won't be as many people
in each of the classrooms,

231
00:14:58,310 --> 00:15:03,650
they won't be filled to capacity like
many of our classrooms usually are.

232
00:15:03,650 --> 00:15:07,410
So people will be spaced.

233
00:15:07,410 --> 00:15:11,620
While things will be looking different in
the classroom, our goal is that things and

234
00:15:11,620 --> 00:15:14,700
the key things that we do
here at IUPUI feel the same.

235
00:15:14,700 --> 00:15:18,710
So in large part of
the goal is that we'll have

236
00:15:18,710 --> 00:15:23,480
a mix of face to face and remote work.

237
00:15:23,480 --> 00:15:28,180
And the face to face instruction is really
going to be focused on helping students

238
00:15:28,180 --> 00:15:29,670
more deeply engage in the material.

239
00:15:29,670 --> 00:15:32,520
So think of it as perhaps
watching a lecture online.

240
00:15:32,520 --> 00:15:38,060
And then, having a face to face
interaction in a classroom with fellow

241
00:15:38,060 --> 00:15:43,420
students and an instructor to discuss
the material, to ask questions or

242
00:15:43,420 --> 00:15:47,390
maybe even to go deeper and work on
a project or an assignment together.

243
00:15:47,390 --> 00:15:49,200
So that's a brief snapshot.

244
00:15:49,200 --> 00:15:53,230
Now that is true from August
24th through November 20th,

245
00:15:53,230 --> 00:15:57,600
the final three weeks of the fall
semester we will be completely online,

246
00:15:57,600 --> 00:16:00,330
given the predictions around
a second spike in the coronavirus.

247
00:16:00,330 --> 00:16:04,351
We've made the decision to
conduct the last three weeks of

248
00:16:04,351 --> 00:16:08,090
the semester in a completely
online environment.

249
00:16:08,090 --> 00:16:13,900
>> Okay, thank you,
that question came from Jay.

250
00:16:13,900 --> 00:16:17,440
If you're in the audience, we wanna
thank you for submitting that question.

251
00:16:17,440 --> 00:16:23,270
So, Dr. Gladden,
do you have any feedback in terms of how

252
00:16:23,270 --> 00:16:30,040
a student may know if class is going to be
online or if they're going to be in person?

253
00:16:30,040 --> 00:16:35,020
>> Sure, and so our folks right now
are really busy first, toward the end of

254
00:16:35,020 --> 00:16:38,690
figuring out what the actual capacities
of each of our classrooms are.

255
00:16:38,690 --> 00:16:44,290
And then we're working with our
academic units [COUGH] to essentially

256
00:16:44,290 --> 00:16:49,300
identify how each of the courses will
be offered in the fall semester.

257
00:16:49,300 --> 00:16:52,820
All that work and students should be
able to see the delivery format for

258
00:16:52,820 --> 00:16:55,090
their courses by mid July.

259
00:16:55,090 --> 00:16:59,010
The student will be notified and
given instructions on how to look at that,

260
00:16:59,010 --> 00:17:05,650
at which time if the student wants to or
if you want to adjust your schedule,

261
00:17:05,650 --> 00:17:13,240
there will be an opportunity to
do that by consulting advisors.

262
00:17:13,240 --> 00:17:14,240
>> Thank you.

263
00:17:14,240 --> 00:17:18,839
So another hot topic that has
emerged is around housing.

264
00:17:18,839 --> 00:17:20,390
This one is from Jaylin Clark.

265
00:17:20,390 --> 00:17:32,110
And the question is, I have a housing
contract, when do we move in?

266
00:17:32,110 --> 00:17:34,759
>> Happy to answer that question.

267
00:17:34,759 --> 00:17:37,539
>> Thank you Dr. Weldy.

268
00:17:37,539 --> 00:17:43,580
>> Yeah, so obviously, pre COVID-19
we would have a couple of days,

269
00:17:43,580 --> 00:17:49,410
a Friday, Saturday, which would be the
official move in dates for new students.

270
00:17:49,410 --> 00:17:54,680
Obviously, with social distancing and
other guidelines that have been set,

271
00:17:54,680 --> 00:18:01,600
we're gonna take a different approach
this fall to kick off, move in.

272
00:18:01,600 --> 00:18:06,240
So what we're going to do is that
students will be moving in anywhere from

273
00:18:06,240 --> 00:18:11,740
seven to ten days before the start
of classes on August 24th.

274
00:18:11,740 --> 00:18:16,140
And so this will obviously allow for
social distancing for

275
00:18:16,140 --> 00:18:23,720
us and so forth, so
it'll be definitely a different approach.

276
00:18:23,720 --> 00:18:27,290
Students will receive more information
as the fall semester draws

277
00:18:27,290 --> 00:18:32,540
near on all the details of registering for
move in and so forth.

278
00:18:32,540 --> 00:18:38,970
>> Okay, thank you, sir.

279
00:18:38,970 --> 00:18:43,300
So, this is another question
related to housing.

280
00:18:43,300 --> 00:18:50,450
When it comes to the plans for
responding to COVID-19 and

281
00:18:50,450 --> 00:18:53,300
making sure that students that are living
in the residence halls are safe.

282
00:18:53,300 --> 00:18:57,530
Can you speak about that in
terms of what the Division of

283
00:18:57,530 --> 00:19:00,440
Student Affairs' response is to that.

284
00:19:00,440 --> 00:19:03,880
>> Yes, happy to do so.

285
00:19:03,880 --> 00:19:08,910
One of the changes that we
have this year is that we've

286
00:19:08,910 --> 00:19:13,680
been directed to provide single
occupancy rooms for the fall.

287
00:19:13,680 --> 00:19:15,809
But we are making exceptions for

288
00:19:15,809 --> 00:19:20,050
those students who make
mutual roommate requests.

289
00:19:20,050 --> 00:19:25,510
So roommate request is a voluntary
process that students will initiate and

290
00:19:25,510 --> 00:19:27,830
that we will not be initiating.

291
00:19:27,830 --> 00:19:31,950
So students, they're rooming
with someone because they have

292
00:19:31,950 --> 00:19:35,910
mutually selected their roommate.

293
00:19:35,910 --> 00:19:37,610
Other things that we'll
be doing obviously,

294
00:19:37,610 --> 00:19:43,970
as from the standpoint of making sure
that surfaces are cleaned daily.

295
00:19:43,970 --> 00:19:50,250
We will also be providing
students with what they need from

296
00:19:50,250 --> 00:19:56,820
the standpoint of cleaning their
areas on their floors and so forth.

297
00:19:56,820 --> 00:20:02,440
So the approach obviously, will be
much different than in previous years,

298
00:20:02,440 --> 00:20:05,260
but we're taking every
precaution necessary to

299
00:20:05,260 --> 00:20:11,040
make sure that we have
a safe, healthy environment.

300
00:20:11,040 --> 00:20:12,440
>> Okay, thank you.

301
00:20:12,440 --> 00:20:17,309
So the way that it sounds, Dr. Weldy,

302
00:20:17,309 --> 00:20:20,870
I've safely been going to
the grocery store wearing my mask,

303
00:20:20,870 --> 00:20:24,590
wearing my gloves, and there's a ton
of precautions that they've taken.

304
00:20:24,590 --> 00:20:29,050
They're wiping down carts,
they're doing social distancing.

305
00:20:29,050 --> 00:20:33,150
And it sounds like you all have been doing
an incredible job of really thinking ahead

306
00:20:33,150 --> 00:20:37,050
to ensure that the residence
halls have a similar degree

307
00:20:37,050 --> 00:20:42,830
of intentionality to ensure
that there's a sanitary space.

308
00:20:42,830 --> 00:20:47,679
Not to mention just all of
the research that we've done

309
00:20:47,679 --> 00:20:51,730
in terms of COVID-19 to ensure that we're
following best practices nationally.

310
00:20:51,730 --> 00:20:53,530
So thank you for that answer.

311
00:20:53,530 --> 00:20:59,160
We're gonna shift to
a question on textbooks.

312
00:20:59,160 --> 00:21:03,180
And so once your students start renting
and buying textbooks in preparation for

313
00:21:03,180 --> 00:21:09,260
the fall, so Dr. Bradshaw,
would you like to take this question?

314
00:21:09,260 --> 00:21:12,910
>> Thank you Errol.

315
00:21:12,910 --> 00:21:19,070
So the textbook question is
a good question, and as Dr.

316
00:21:19,070 --> 00:21:23,660
Gladden had mentioned earlier that
we are working right now behind

317
00:21:23,660 --> 00:21:29,720
the scenes to determine what courses
are going to be in what format.

318
00:21:29,720 --> 00:21:34,429
And by mid July we will
have made that decision.

319
00:21:34,429 --> 00:21:37,790
At which point and then more
information would become available

320
00:21:37,790 --> 00:21:42,270
about the textbooks in the options.

321
00:21:42,270 --> 00:21:45,500
Understanding students situations,
you may not be able to come to campus,

322
00:21:45,500 --> 00:21:49,330
you may choose not to come to
campus to pick up the textbook.

323
00:21:49,330 --> 00:21:52,900
I know this is probably a very
popular question, Stephanie Keiner,

324
00:21:52,900 --> 00:21:57,483
that you're receiving in orientation, so
if there's anything that I've missed and

325
00:21:57,483 --> 00:22:00,509
that you think you could add on to that,
that would be great.

326
00:22:00,509 --> 00:22:04,430
>> Yes, sure, hi everyone,
I'm Stephanie Keiner, I'm the Director for

327
00:22:04,430 --> 00:22:06,590
Orientation Services.

328
00:22:06,590 --> 00:22:10,980
And yes, so once you're registered for
classes, so if you've met with an advisor

329
00:22:10,980 --> 00:22:14,500
and registered for classes, then you
will be able to go onto the Barnes and

330
00:22:14,500 --> 00:22:17,380
Noble bookstore website and look and

331
00:22:17,380 --> 00:22:22,790
see if any of your books are currently
available for you to see what's available.

332
00:22:22,790 --> 00:22:26,540
So if the professor has already put
something in then it will be there.

333
00:22:26,540 --> 00:22:29,090
I would not recommend
purchasing books just yet.

334
00:22:29,090 --> 00:22:31,430
You can if you like.

335
00:22:31,430 --> 00:22:33,730
But as Dr. Bradshaw said,
some things could change or

336
00:22:33,730 --> 00:22:36,010
you might decide to change your schedule,
depending as Dr.

337
00:22:36,010 --> 00:22:39,559
Gladden said, so you might want to
hold off just a little bit.

338
00:22:39,559 --> 00:22:44,160
But if you're curious enough, and
you want to go check it out and see, like

339
00:22:44,160 --> 00:22:46,130
I said, if you've already registered for
classes, you can definitely hop in there.

340
00:22:46,130 --> 00:22:48,540
And you'll be able to
see what is available.

341
00:22:48,540 --> 00:22:50,140
The bookstore is currently closed so

342
00:22:50,140 --> 00:22:52,600
coming to the bookstore is
not an option at this time.

343
00:22:52,600 --> 00:22:55,809
But they do everything full
service through their website.

344
00:22:55,809 --> 00:23:01,300
So if you want to visit anything there,
they're also super folks to work with.

345
00:23:01,300 --> 00:23:04,309
So if you have any questions, please
feel free to reach out to the bookstore

346
00:23:04,309 --> 00:23:09,410
directly, and they'll be able to help
guide you in looking for those textbooks.

347
00:23:09,410 --> 00:23:12,100
>> So Stephanie, I wanna stay with you.

348
00:23:12,100 --> 00:23:15,360
Thank you for that response.

349
00:23:15,360 --> 00:23:19,530
The Student Success Session as a part
of the orientation experience,

350
00:23:19,530 --> 00:23:24,410
there's a ton of resources that are there
in terms of IUPUI resources, housing,

351
00:23:24,410 --> 00:23:26,120
financial services, student affairs,
parking, your CrimsonCard,

352
00:23:26,120 --> 00:23:27,120
bookstore, student representatives.

353
00:23:27,120 --> 00:23:32,990
Students are really getting a lot and

354
00:23:32,990 --> 00:23:36,070
I know there are several students in
this space who have gone through it.

355
00:23:36,070 --> 00:23:37,710
There are some that are waiting.

356
00:23:37,710 --> 00:23:41,230
There was a question in terms
of the academic advising piece.

357
00:23:41,230 --> 00:23:45,770
And a student wanna know,
specifically Alexander B,

358
00:23:45,770 --> 00:23:48,920
how do I switch to a dual degree
major from my current major?

359
00:23:48,920 --> 00:23:51,490
Does that happen in
the Student Success Session?

360
00:23:51,490 --> 00:23:53,419
Is that somewhere in
the orientation experience?

361
00:23:53,419 --> 00:23:58,640
>> That was not and that's a little
bit of a specific situation.

362
00:23:58,640 --> 00:24:01,910
So I would highly recommend if you've
already met with an academic advisor,

363
00:24:01,910 --> 00:24:03,820
reach back out to that academic advisor.

364
00:24:03,820 --> 00:24:07,590
If I understand the question correctly,
you're wanting to have two majors.

365
00:24:07,590 --> 00:24:13,090
You're wanting to have a double major
if I understand the question correctly.

366
00:24:13,090 --> 00:24:17,780
And so with that, what you'll need to do
is meet with the advisor that you first

367
00:24:17,780 --> 00:24:22,570
submitted as for your application to
IUPUI that you chose as your major.

368
00:24:22,570 --> 00:24:24,850
That's the advisor that
you should start with and

369
00:24:24,850 --> 00:24:27,720
mention to that advisor when you're
meeting with them that you're interested

370
00:24:27,720 --> 00:24:30,890
in having a double major pathway.

371
00:24:30,890 --> 00:24:33,930
And that advisor will be able to
send you in the correct direction

372
00:24:33,930 --> 00:24:35,850
to make sure that you're meeting
with the other school and

373
00:24:35,850 --> 00:24:40,650
the other advisor to make sure
that you're not doubling effort.

374
00:24:40,650 --> 00:24:43,310
You want to make sure that you're taking
classes that are going to progress you

375
00:24:43,310 --> 00:24:47,650
through and not add a whole bunch
of extra time as you do that.

376
00:24:47,650 --> 00:24:48,880
So that sounds fantastic.

377
00:24:48,880 --> 00:24:52,540
Good for you for being eager to do that.

378
00:24:52,540 --> 00:24:56,580
Definitely check with the academic
advisors to make sure that that happens.

379
00:24:56,580 --> 00:24:59,930
>> A live question just
came in from Stephanie.

380
00:24:59,930 --> 00:25:03,140
Excuse me, from Alex, you're Stephanie.

381
00:25:03,140 --> 00:25:06,919
>> How does one set up an appointment
with an academic advisor?

382
00:25:06,919 --> 00:25:12,549
>> Absolutely, so
we have designed a 12-step orientation,

383
00:25:12,549 --> 00:25:15,299
virtual orientation experience for you.

384
00:25:15,299 --> 00:25:18,000
And as you start that virtual
orientation experience,

385
00:25:18,000 --> 00:25:20,660
you'll progress through 12 steps.

386
00:25:20,660 --> 00:25:26,160
About step six is the information to
schedule an appointment with an advisor.

387
00:25:26,160 --> 00:25:27,520
And you can do that at any time.

388
00:25:27,520 --> 00:25:29,980
You don't have to wait for
your Student Success Session.

389
00:25:29,980 --> 00:25:33,070
You don't have to wait until
you complete placement tests.

390
00:25:33,070 --> 00:25:35,370
You can go ahead and
make that appointment now.

391
00:25:35,370 --> 00:25:38,260
We do highly recommend that you go
ahead and take those placement tests

392
00:25:38,260 --> 00:25:42,300
at least 48 hours in advance
of that advising appointment.

393
00:25:42,300 --> 00:25:45,460
So that way the advisor is fully
prepared to get you set for

394
00:25:45,460 --> 00:25:47,610
your first semester schedule.

395
00:25:47,610 --> 00:25:51,530
If you haven't visited the virtual
orientation website, please do so.

396
00:25:51,530 --> 00:25:54,549
You can find it at orientation.iupui.edu.

397
00:25:54,549 --> 00:25:59,570
In the top left, there's a button
that says virtual orientation.

398
00:25:59,570 --> 00:26:02,660
Once you click on that, you're gonna
see that there's four sections.

399
00:26:02,660 --> 00:26:07,260
The first section takes you through
a few pieces such as placement test.

400
00:26:07,260 --> 00:26:10,390
The second section is
all about advising and

401
00:26:10,390 --> 00:26:13,370
how to get prepared for
that advising appointment.

402
00:26:13,370 --> 00:26:17,160
And then the third and fourth sections
have lots of general information that we

403
00:26:17,160 --> 00:26:22,020
want you to be aware of as you progress
through campus or progress to campus.

404
00:26:22,020 --> 00:26:24,530
However, you can view that
information at your leisure

405
00:26:24,530 --> 00:26:26,110
whenever it's convenient for you.

406
00:26:26,110 --> 00:26:27,110
We just want you to get

407
00:26:27,110 --> 00:26:29,120
through that information prior
to the start of the semester.

408
00:26:29,120 --> 00:26:30,280
So you're aware and

409
00:26:30,280 --> 00:26:33,880
have all the information that you need
to make the successful transition.

410
00:26:33,880 --> 00:26:37,580
>> Okay, and
just wanna let everybody know right below,

411
00:26:37,580 --> 00:26:42,690
there is a link to what
Stephanie was talking about and

412
00:26:42,690 --> 00:26:46,770
you'll be able to see more
details in terms of that link.

413
00:26:46,770 --> 00:26:51,160
So this is a question for Dr. Weldy and

414
00:26:51,160 --> 00:26:55,020
what the on-campus social
experience is going to look like.

415
00:26:55,020 --> 00:26:59,340
Can you talk about how social
gatherings will be approached for

416
00:26:59,340 --> 00:27:03,770
when students want to come together and
not only from a safety standpoint but

417
00:27:03,770 --> 00:27:08,980
also from the standpoint of division of
how that's going to look in the fall?

418
00:27:08,980 --> 00:27:11,799
>> Yes, thank you very much.

419
00:27:11,799 --> 00:27:17,980
What I can tell you in regards to social
advance and student activities on campus

420
00:27:17,980 --> 00:27:25,120
is that there will be both a virtual
component to our activities and

421
00:27:25,120 --> 00:27:29,590
programs, as well as some
face-to-face interactions as well.

422
00:27:29,590 --> 00:27:34,890
I think if you want to learn more about
the clubs and organizations on campus,

423
00:27:34,890 --> 00:27:41,049
I would strongly suggest if you
have not already to visit The Spot,

424
00:27:41,049 --> 00:27:45,960
which is the new name for
what was previously called The Den.

425
00:27:45,960 --> 00:27:51,750
And it's located at theden.iupui.edu.

426
00:27:51,750 --> 00:27:55,919
And you go there to learn more about
our on-campus student organizations.

427
00:27:55,919 --> 00:27:59,210
We do have some activities
at the beginning of the year

428
00:27:59,210 --> 00:28:03,390
that are long standing
traditions at IUPUI.

429
00:28:03,390 --> 00:28:06,870
One is the Weeks of Welcome and
the other is Regatta.

430
00:28:06,870 --> 00:28:10,810
And so I can tell you that
both Weeks of Welcome and

431
00:28:10,810 --> 00:28:14,520
Regatta will be taking place this year,
but

432
00:28:14,520 --> 00:28:19,230
we'll have a virtual component to them
with some face-to-face interactions.

433
00:28:19,230 --> 00:28:26,010
Obviously, we have to limit
the size of some of our activities.

434
00:28:26,010 --> 00:28:30,679
And so what you'll find on campus is
that you'll find that a number of

435
00:28:30,679 --> 00:28:36,590
events will be taking place outdoors,
which will be great.

436
00:28:36,590 --> 00:28:43,809
So it'll allow for really more spacing and
more interaction amongst our student body.

437
00:28:43,809 --> 00:28:48,559
But we're really looking at focusing on
how best to engage our students whether

438
00:28:48,559 --> 00:28:52,760
you're you'll be taking classes
virtually or face to face.

439
00:28:52,760 --> 00:29:01,190
>> I want to bring Dr. Shabazz in,
who leads our Multicultural Center and

440
00:29:01,190 --> 00:29:04,010
does a tremendous amount of work
around our diversity efforts.

441
00:29:04,010 --> 00:29:09,030
Can you talk a little bit about
the on-campus experience from a diversity

442
00:29:09,030 --> 00:29:12,740
standpoint, especially as we're
looking at a new cycle that's showing

443
00:29:12,740 --> 00:29:17,160
a lot around race as a as a result
of the tragedies that have happened?

444
00:29:17,160 --> 00:29:22,980
Can you talk about IUPUI's approach
in terms of those campus resources?

445
00:29:22,980 --> 00:29:26,460
>> Absolutely, good evening, everyone.

446
00:29:26,460 --> 00:29:30,110
On behalf of the Division of Diversity,
Equity and Inclusion, and

447
00:29:30,110 --> 00:29:34,610
Multicultural Center, and the LGBTQ+
Center, I want to welcome you to IUPUI.

448
00:29:34,610 --> 00:29:40,460
As a fellow alumni, I am excited to
have you all join us this evening and

449
00:29:40,460 --> 00:29:42,480
see you soon this fall.

450
00:29:42,480 --> 00:29:47,990
The Multicultural Center and the LGBTQ+
Center have really been working hard to

451
00:29:47,990 --> 00:29:54,030
make sure that we are doing our part to
advance the social change on our campus

452
00:29:54,030 --> 00:30:00,870
in our city but also to provide a diverse,
equitable, and safe campus environment.

453
00:30:00,870 --> 00:30:05,250
We believe in having constructive
opportunities for dialogue,

454
00:30:05,250 --> 00:30:11,580
creating opportunities for people to learn
and engage with a difference in all forms.

455
00:30:11,580 --> 00:30:15,980
So we welcome you to take a look at
many of the resources that we have on

456
00:30:15,980 --> 00:30:19,590
the diversity.iupui.edu web page.

457
00:30:19,590 --> 00:30:24,830
We have a variety of educational books,
articles, videos,

458
00:30:24,830 --> 00:30:27,710
movies, links to a number
of things to help

459
00:30:27,710 --> 00:30:32,380
you really understand the way we see
stability in the way that we see social

460
00:30:32,380 --> 00:30:36,850
justice in the form of being
a jaguar and coming together.

461
00:30:36,850 --> 00:30:41,410
So there will be plenty of things
to do to engage in virtually across our

462
00:30:41,410 --> 00:30:43,299
campus coming this fall.

463
00:30:43,299 --> 00:30:47,510
And into the spring that will really allow
opportunities to get to know yourselves

464
00:30:47,510 --> 00:30:49,100
a little bit better.

465
00:30:49,100 --> 00:30:52,370
But also get to know each other and

466
00:30:52,370 --> 00:30:55,690
be able to really work to
advance the social change.

467
00:30:55,690 --> 00:31:02,090
>> Thank you so much Dr Shabazz,
it sounds students have something

468
00:31:02,090 --> 00:31:06,690
to look forward to in terms
of the student experience and

469
00:31:06,690 --> 00:31:09,919
opportunities to engage one another.

470
00:31:09,919 --> 00:31:14,460
It's going to be a mix of in person and
in virtual, but

471
00:31:14,460 --> 00:31:16,970
it's going to be thoughtful and impactful.

472
00:31:16,970 --> 00:31:24,980
So that's exciting to hear, so
the summertime, we have orientation and

473
00:31:24,980 --> 00:31:28,470
after orientation there is something
called Summer Bridge week.

474
00:31:28,470 --> 00:31:31,429
And so you all have gotten
communication around this and

475
00:31:31,429 --> 00:31:34,840
we encourage all incoming students
to take advantage of this.

476
00:31:34,840 --> 00:31:39,960
I'd like to bring in Dr.
Gladden to answer a question and

477
00:31:39,960 --> 00:31:46,289
in regards to how the Summer Bridge
week in the program is gonna work,

478
00:31:46,289 --> 00:31:48,710
and is there still going to be a move in and

479
00:31:48,710 --> 00:31:51,919
this question came from from Jolene Boyd.

480
00:31:51,919 --> 00:31:54,470
>> Well, thanks for the question.

481
00:31:54,470 --> 00:31:59,919
And I will begin the answer, and then
I'm going to hand it off to my colleague,

482
00:31:59,919 --> 00:32:05,330
Heather Bowman, who actually
coordinates the bridge week program.

483
00:32:05,330 --> 00:32:09,851
But I am excited to let everyone know
that for the first time ever, every

484
00:32:09,851 --> 00:32:14,429
freshman is gonna have an opportunity
to take a part in our bridge week,

485
00:32:14,429 --> 00:32:20,900
which will happen the week before classes
start, so August 17th to August 21st.

486
00:32:20,900 --> 00:32:24,799
And it's going to be a mix of virtual and
remote activities.

487
00:32:24,799 --> 00:32:27,940
Some of those will be what's called
synchronous, meaning they'll be live,

488
00:32:27,940 --> 00:32:29,210
just like we're doing right now.

489
00:32:29,210 --> 00:32:30,580
And some will be asynchronous, so

490
00:32:30,580 --> 00:32:35,740
maybe viewing a video on some of
the resources that existed on IUPUI.

491
00:32:35,740 --> 00:32:40,950
This will be complemented by some face-
to-face activities that are optional.

492
00:32:40,950 --> 00:32:45,620
But on campus and going back to this
just the notion of movement that Dr.

493
00:32:45,620 --> 00:32:50,030
Weldy spoke about, we envision a lot of
outdoor activities given the great weather

494
00:32:50,030 --> 00:32:52,190
we tend to have in August and September.

495
00:32:52,190 --> 00:32:56,330
But in particular in August, we should be
able to do a number of optional bridge

496
00:32:56,330 --> 00:33:00,550
week activities outside
on the IUPUI campus.

497
00:33:00,550 --> 00:33:03,460
At this point, I just like to give Heather
a chance to talk a little bit more in

498
00:33:03,460 --> 00:33:04,460
detail about that.

499
00:33:04,460 --> 00:33:09,200
>> Great, thank you,
so I'm Heather Bowman.

500
00:33:09,200 --> 00:33:13,400
I'm director of First Year Experience
at IUPUI and we are so

501
00:33:13,400 --> 00:33:17,130
excited to offer bridge week to
all of our freshmen this year.

502
00:33:17,130 --> 00:33:22,010
This is a program that's happened on our
campus for 20 years and in every one of

503
00:33:22,010 --> 00:33:25,000
those 20 years, we have students who
didn't get a chance to participate.

504
00:33:25,000 --> 00:33:28,310
Because by this point in
the summer it's really full.

505
00:33:28,310 --> 00:33:32,380
And we're running waiting lists, and
so it's incredibly exciting to us we

506
00:33:32,380 --> 00:33:37,270
get to open this program up to
all incoming freshmen this year.

507
00:33:37,270 --> 00:33:41,760
Our goal in bridge week is really to give
you all the tools that you need to hit

508
00:33:41,760 --> 00:33:44,710
the ground running that
first week of classes.

509
00:33:44,710 --> 00:33:50,570
So everything from sessions on what
do professors expect from you to how

510
00:33:50,570 --> 00:33:55,130
the library works, to how do you actually
get involved with all those student

511
00:33:55,130 --> 00:34:00,030
organizations that Chancellor Paydar
mentioned, how do you start that process?

512
00:34:00,030 --> 00:34:03,070
How do you connect to the school or
major that you've chosen?

513
00:34:03,070 --> 00:34:05,789
Or how do you find one if
you're still exploring?

514
00:34:05,789 --> 00:34:10,119
We even this year are adding some
sessions for parents and families.

515
00:34:10,119 --> 00:34:14,970
We know that you are key to supporting
your student during this what's a really

516
00:34:14,970 --> 00:34:18,310
big transition and we know it's a really
big transition for you as well.

517
00:34:18,310 --> 00:34:21,869
So adding some sessions for
parents and families this year.

518
00:34:21,869 --> 00:34:27,250
But really again, our goal is to get all
your questions answered and to let you

519
00:34:27,250 --> 00:34:32,580
start connecting with faculty and with
students who are currently at IUPUI and

520
00:34:32,580 --> 00:34:34,960
having great success and
getting to know each other.

521
00:34:34,960 --> 00:34:38,320
So making friends among the class of 2024.

522
00:34:38,320 --> 00:34:42,230
Again, it's the first time we've opened
this program to all students and

523
00:34:42,230 --> 00:34:46,110
we're hoping that this becomes a new
tradition on the IUPUI campus.

524
00:34:46,110 --> 00:34:49,619
So we're really excited that that
tradition is going to start with the class

525
00:34:49,619 --> 00:34:51,119
of 2024.

526
00:34:51,119 --> 00:34:56,410
>> That sounds great, and
the Zoom experience, although you all

527
00:34:56,410 --> 00:35:02,250
are experiencing us right now, us through
chat and us speaking directly to you.

528
00:35:02,250 --> 00:35:06,260
We're getting very creative in terms
of how we re-engage students within

529
00:35:06,260 --> 00:35:11,080
this Zoom space, breakout rooms,
group conversations.

530
00:35:11,080 --> 00:35:14,800
Giving you an opportunity to connect
with one another and feel a sense of

531
00:35:14,800 --> 00:35:20,090
community before you come to IUPUI, as
we know that's really important for you.

532
00:35:20,090 --> 00:35:23,190
So this next question important
to students, but absolutely,

533
00:35:23,190 --> 00:35:27,960
we know it's important to parents,
financial aid and money.

534
00:35:27,960 --> 00:35:29,070
So we're gonna bring Dr.

535
00:35:29,070 --> 00:35:35,200
Bradshaw back for this question and
this one is from JT Pour.

536
00:35:35,200 --> 00:35:39,340
And the question is when will
we find out what financial

537
00:35:39,340 --> 00:35:42,000
aid packages we will receive.

538
00:35:42,000 --> 00:35:43,829
Dr. Bradshaw?

539
00:35:43,829 --> 00:35:45,830
>> Thank you Errol, and

540
00:35:45,830 --> 00:35:50,109
I have the right expert in the room with
us today to kind of answer that question.

541
00:35:50,109 --> 00:35:52,880
And it also gives me
an opportunity to introduce Mr.

542
00:35:52,880 --> 00:35:56,070
Marvin Smith,
who is our Director of Student

543
00:35:56,070 --> 00:35:57,240
Financial Services here at IUPUI and

544
00:35:57,240 --> 00:36:02,440
we have been working very hard behind
the scenes with our students.

545
00:36:02,440 --> 00:36:05,230
Both our continuing students,
but also our new students

546
00:36:05,230 --> 00:36:10,820
in making sure that our financial aid
packages are out in a timely manner.

547
00:36:10,820 --> 00:36:15,269
So Marvin, would you like to share
a bit of information about timing?

548
00:36:15,269 --> 00:36:20,980
>> Sure, so and I've seen a few
questions that are in the chat.

549
00:36:20,980 --> 00:36:25,660
The bill for
the fall semester tuition is coming

550
00:36:25,660 --> 00:36:31,290
out in August and is due September 10th.

551
00:36:31,290 --> 00:36:36,660
The financial aid that students
receive will be applied to that bill,

552
00:36:36,660 --> 00:36:42,760
and then any excess that doesn't
go towards tuition fees and

553
00:36:42,760 --> 00:36:47,119
housing is refunded back to the student.

554
00:36:47,119 --> 00:36:51,560
That process begins the week
before classes start.

555
00:36:51,560 --> 00:36:55,200
So if you have set up direct deposit and

556
00:36:55,200 --> 00:36:59,330
you're expecting financial aid funds back,

557
00:36:59,330 --> 00:37:07,250
you could have a refund as early as
August 20th, somewhere around there.

558
00:37:07,250 --> 00:37:12,450
So I think that we really highlight
this in the Student Success Sessions.

559
00:37:12,450 --> 00:37:16,360
I encourage you to definitely sign up for
that.

560
00:37:16,360 --> 00:37:19,349
I think that's another term for
orientation this summer,

561
00:37:19,349 --> 00:37:23,330
Cause I saw that as another
question in the chat.

562
00:37:23,330 --> 00:37:26,450
Encourage you to sign up for
Student Success Session and

563
00:37:26,450 --> 00:37:31,680
we will talk to you about everything
there is to know about financial aid.

564
00:37:31,680 --> 00:37:34,600
We know this is a confusing topic.

565
00:37:34,600 --> 00:37:40,690
If you are not aware of
your financial aid awards,

566
00:37:40,690 --> 00:37:45,270
you can go into the self-service
system and see your awards.

567
00:37:45,270 --> 00:37:52,349
You can also call us and email us and
I'll put that information in the chat.

568
00:37:52,349 --> 00:37:57,050
>> Okay, so very good and
again at the end we're gonna.

569
00:37:57,050 --> 00:38:01,070
Many of you all have been working with
admissions counselors that you've become

570
00:38:01,070 --> 00:38:04,300
very familiar with and you've met
academic advisors from your schools.

571
00:38:04,300 --> 00:38:07,680
And of course, you've talked
with financial aid counselors,

572
00:38:07,680 --> 00:38:09,820
you've got people that can get
you to the right place and

573
00:38:09,820 --> 00:38:15,590
we want to make sure the money conversation,
you feel really good about that.

574
00:38:15,590 --> 00:38:19,720
And so we'll come back to some more
questions as you put them into the chat

575
00:38:19,720 --> 00:38:21,340
around finances.

576
00:38:21,340 --> 00:38:26,100
I wanna go to another
question in terms of housing,

577
00:38:26,100 --> 00:38:30,260
we want to bring Dr.
Weldy back to this to the conversation.

578
00:38:30,260 --> 00:38:36,730
This is from Nadia and she said I have
a housing contract at University Tower.

579
00:38:36,730 --> 00:38:40,370
If I don't request a roommate,
will it be moved to a different dorm?

580
00:38:40,370 --> 00:38:44,280
I think this is in relation to the
self-selecting roommate process that we

581
00:38:44,280 --> 00:38:49,690
have in place as part of our
COVID-19 safety precautions.

582
00:38:49,690 --> 00:38:54,140
Can you speak on the singles versus
the double standard and practice for

583
00:38:54,140 --> 00:38:57,340
housing and residence life, please?

584
00:38:57,340 --> 00:39:01,960
>> Yes, so
in regards to having a contract,

585
00:39:01,960 --> 00:39:04,350
if you have not selected a roommate,
once again,

586
00:39:04,350 --> 00:39:09,230
I would strongly suggest
that you identify someone

587
00:39:09,230 --> 00:39:15,410
mutually in regards to having a roommate.

588
00:39:15,410 --> 00:39:22,359
If not, then there's a possibility
that you could end up

589
00:39:22,359 --> 00:39:27,570
in a single occupancy room,
but your chances are better

590
00:39:27,570 --> 00:39:32,440
from the standpoint of identifying
a roommate for the coming year.

591
00:39:32,440 --> 00:39:36,310
The Tower, we have doubles in the Tower.

592
00:39:36,310 --> 00:39:40,349
So if you are seeking
a single occupancy room,

593
00:39:40,349 --> 00:39:46,190
the odds are that you will end
up in another residence hall.

594
00:39:46,190 --> 00:39:49,119
>> So that's an important disclaimer,
okay?

595
00:39:49,119 --> 00:39:51,170
And so we as

596
00:39:51,170 --> 00:39:56,920
the University are not a part of
facilitating the roommate process.

597
00:39:56,920 --> 00:40:02,200
But this is a great opportunity to
promote the Facebook class of 2024 group.

598
00:40:02,200 --> 00:40:06,510
A lot of great conversation between
students asking the question

599
00:40:06,510 --> 00:40:09,290
in regards to who's going to
be living on campus?

600
00:40:09,290 --> 00:40:11,310
Do you want to room together?

601
00:40:11,310 --> 00:40:14,250
Another great idea, I know we've
got a lot of our academic units and

602
00:40:14,250 --> 00:40:16,150
they have admissions partners, and

603
00:40:16,150 --> 00:40:19,849
several of you all have been working
with them throughout the cycle.

604
00:40:19,849 --> 00:40:23,980
Talk to your academic unit as well and
say, hey, can you help?

605
00:40:23,980 --> 00:40:24,980
Is there an opportunity for

606
00:40:24,980 --> 00:40:32,020
us to talk with some of our peer incoming
students that are from the same major?

607
00:40:32,020 --> 00:40:34,700
Now they can't help in
terms of that process,

608
00:40:34,700 --> 00:40:36,790
you have to put yourself out there.

609
00:40:36,790 --> 00:40:39,320
But we certainly don't want to put you out
of

610
00:40:39,320 --> 00:40:40,990
the Tower if that's where you want to be.

611
00:40:40,990 --> 00:40:44,720
But from Dr. Weldy, what he shared,

612
00:40:44,720 --> 00:40:49,099
we're going to have to make sure
that you have a roommate, okay?

613
00:40:49,099 --> 00:40:54,370
So our next question, I'm going to

614
00:40:54,370 --> 00:40:58,450
go, Okay, this is from Elise.

615
00:40:58,450 --> 00:41:04,950
And this is going to go back to Dr.
Gladden, and it's in regards to classes.

616
00:41:04,950 --> 00:41:09,200
So our biggest question is when will
out students know if the classes that

617
00:41:09,200 --> 00:41:13,350
she has already registered for
will be moved online,

618
00:41:13,350 --> 00:41:16,099
take place on campus, or be hybrid?

619
00:41:16,099 --> 00:41:20,640
You have a general sense of when
that is is going to be Dr. Gladden?

620
00:41:20,640 --> 00:41:26,339
>> Yes, again by mid July is
when we expect all of that

621
00:41:26,339 --> 00:41:29,330
information to be fully
available to students.

622
00:41:29,330 --> 00:41:34,680
And they will receive a notification with
directions on how to see that information

623
00:41:34,680 --> 00:41:35,810
when it becomes available.

624
00:41:35,810 --> 00:41:43,380
So by mid July, students will be able to
see what format their course will be in.

625
00:41:43,380 --> 00:41:47,820
So I hope that answers the question.

626
00:41:47,820 --> 00:41:53,740
>> So many of you have been doing a great
job on staying up to date on your emails,

627
00:41:53,740 --> 00:41:54,740
okay?

628
00:41:54,740 --> 00:41:59,290
We're gonna keep engaging you via email,
and you can also engage us at

629
00:41:59,290 --> 00:42:03,280
any time pick up the phone and call and
check and say, hey, is there an update?

630
00:42:03,280 --> 00:42:07,160
But we're going to be proactively pushing
information out there to you all so

631
00:42:07,160 --> 00:42:11,089
you feel confident that you have
all the details that you need.

632
00:42:11,089 --> 00:42:15,550
And let me just say this again,
you can't reach out to us too much, okay?

633
00:42:15,550 --> 00:42:18,240
We're here to partner with
you as we go through this.

634
00:42:18,240 --> 00:42:21,540
And just know,
we have students out there that,

635
00:42:21,540 --> 00:42:23,280
have parents that have gone to college.

636
00:42:23,280 --> 00:42:25,780
We have first generation college
students that are out there.

637
00:42:25,780 --> 00:42:28,110
We've got students from rural Indiana.

638
00:42:28,110 --> 00:42:33,880
We have students from out of state,
students from Indianapolis area.

639
00:42:33,880 --> 00:42:37,470
We want to engage all of you all and
make sure that we answer those questions.

640
00:42:37,470 --> 00:42:41,290
So let's go to placement exam, I'm
gonna bring Stephanie back in for this.

641
00:42:41,290 --> 00:42:45,520
This is from Brianna,
when our placement exams

642
00:42:45,520 --> 00:42:49,670
and/or orientation
required to be completed?

643
00:42:49,670 --> 00:42:52,460
>> Yeah, I assume you're
asking about a deadline, and

644
00:42:52,460 --> 00:42:55,900
there's not really a deadline per se.

645
00:42:55,900 --> 00:42:58,560
We want you to have that
placement test completed at

646
00:42:58,560 --> 00:43:02,670
least 48 hours in advance of
your advising appointment.

647
00:43:02,670 --> 00:43:03,910
So that's kind of your deadline.

648
00:43:03,910 --> 00:43:05,900
If you have an advising appointment set,

649
00:43:05,900 --> 00:43:11,180
you want to have those placement tests
taken prior to that advising appointment.

650
00:43:11,180 --> 00:43:13,610
We will continue to do placement
tests all summer long.

651
00:43:13,610 --> 00:43:17,670
We will continue to have you meeting with
your advisor all summer long, however,

652
00:43:17,670 --> 00:43:20,500
sooner rather than later is better.

653
00:43:20,500 --> 00:43:23,710
We will have some outreach
happening starting in July

654
00:43:23,710 --> 00:43:28,690
with current undergraduate students who
will reach out to you to help you with

655
00:43:28,690 --> 00:43:33,300
the rest of the transition to
starting in the fall semester.

656
00:43:33,300 --> 00:43:36,330
So if you are registered and have classes,

657
00:43:36,330 --> 00:43:38,900
then that leader is going to start
reaching out to you then,

658
00:43:38,900 --> 00:43:41,690
as soon as you register that leader
will start reaching out to you then.

659
00:43:41,690 --> 00:43:46,470
So that outreach starts in July, and
so if you wanted to have a deadline

660
00:43:46,470 --> 00:43:51,240
as far as when to have everything
completed by, July 6 would be one.

661
00:43:51,240 --> 00:43:54,570
But again, whenever that advising
appointment is, we want you to make sure

662
00:43:54,570 --> 00:43:59,500
you have those placement tests completed
at least 48 hours in advancement of that.

663
00:43:59,500 --> 00:44:05,619
>> Okay I want to stay with you, Stephanie,
so in this period of inclusivity,

664
00:44:05,619 --> 00:44:09,530
because that's the ethic of who we
are in this institution at IUPUI.

665
00:44:09,530 --> 00:44:13,030
We do know going through
this COVID-19 crisis,

666
00:44:13,030 --> 00:44:17,630
that there are just student that
don't have reliable Internet and

667
00:44:17,630 --> 00:44:21,920
some students that, from an access
standpoint, they've had challenges.

668
00:44:21,920 --> 00:44:24,450
Are there any accommodations
that are being made for

669
00:44:24,450 --> 00:44:27,490
those who may not be able to complete
their placement test online, and

670
00:44:27,490 --> 00:44:30,229
what would you advise
those individuals to do?

671
00:44:30,229 --> 00:44:33,730
>> Yeah, I think that just having
a conversation with your academic advisor

672
00:44:33,730 --> 00:44:38,280
and letting them know,
the University is providing free Wi-Fi.

673
00:44:38,280 --> 00:44:42,210
But that would mean sitting in your car
taking a placement test which doesn't

674
00:44:42,210 --> 00:44:43,410
necessarily sound the most appealing.

675
00:44:43,410 --> 00:44:48,620
But it is an option if you should
need an opportunity to have Wi-Fi,

676
00:44:48,620 --> 00:44:49,980
there is available on campus.

677
00:44:49,980 --> 00:44:54,630
But I would reach out to the academic
advisor to let them know there are some

678
00:44:54,630 --> 00:45:01,690
things that they could be able to
suggest as far as making some decisions

679
00:45:01,690 --> 00:45:05,410
based on coursework that you've
done previously in high school.

680
00:45:05,410 --> 00:45:08,400
Also, if you've had any dual credit or
an AP,

681
00:45:08,400 --> 00:45:12,440
there may be some decisions that each
individual school can make based on that.

682
00:45:12,440 --> 00:45:20,340
So I would recommend if having
reliable Internet connection or

683
00:45:20,340 --> 00:45:26,160
Wi-Fi is something that is an issue,
on our website,

684
00:45:26,160 --> 00:45:28,050
on the virtual orientation website,

685
00:45:28,050 --> 00:45:32,940
there is an opportunity to find out
where that free Wi-Fi is located.

686
00:45:32,940 --> 00:45:34,890
That is an option,
that is something that you can do.

687
00:45:34,890 --> 00:45:38,660
But I think reaching out to that advisor
and talking to that advisor about those

688
00:45:38,660 --> 00:45:44,180
constraints and concerns, they will be
able to offer some solutions as far as

689
00:45:44,180 --> 00:45:46,349
progressing through with
your course enrollment.

690
00:45:46,349 --> 00:45:54,050
>> I just also wanna add that there
are some local Cable companies and

691
00:45:54,050 --> 00:46:00,070
other organizations that are offering some
discounted and/or free Internet services.

692
00:46:00,070 --> 00:46:03,849
So contact your local providers to
see if you can make arrangements

693
00:46:03,849 --> 00:46:08,020
to access either the free or
reduced pricing on some of the access.

694
00:46:08,020 --> 00:46:14,240
I want to bring Dr. Weldy in to talk about
some of the resources that we have for

695
00:46:14,240 --> 00:46:17,440
any students that may
come to Indianapolis and

696
00:46:17,440 --> 00:46:20,490
may have challenges with accessing food,
clothing.

697
00:46:20,490 --> 00:46:25,609
What do we do as an institution to
support our students in that regard?

698
00:46:25,609 --> 00:46:29,490
>> Yes,
one of the key resources that we have

699
00:46:29,490 --> 00:46:34,760
on campus is our office of
student advocacy and support.

700
00:46:34,760 --> 00:46:37,880
And we call it IOS for short.

701
00:46:37,880 --> 00:46:43,099
And so IOS is the place to
go from the standpoint of

702
00:46:43,099 --> 00:46:46,119
students who are in need of various
kinds of resources as you noted.

703
00:46:46,119 --> 00:46:49,849
I will let you know that we do have

704
00:46:49,849 --> 00:46:53,970
food pantry on campus which
is called Paws Pantry.

705
00:46:53,970 --> 00:47:00,240
And so it is available to
any student who is in need.

706
00:47:00,240 --> 00:47:04,730
And so, that will definitely
be available for students.

707
00:47:04,730 --> 00:47:10,610
We also have Paw's Closet, so,
if you're looking to interview, for

708
00:47:10,610 --> 00:47:16,150
an internship or something like that,
there is clothing available for you.

709
00:47:16,150 --> 00:47:19,770
We have other resources available for
you as well.

710
00:47:19,770 --> 00:47:24,650
And life doesn't stop
once you attend college.

711
00:47:24,650 --> 00:47:31,980
And so, we definitely serve as
really kind of an advocate, for you.

712
00:47:31,980 --> 00:47:36,950
If you're having challenges in regards to,
whether you get sick and

713
00:47:36,950 --> 00:47:41,010
you're missing class, or whether or
not there's a death in the family.

714
00:47:41,010 --> 00:47:45,400
It's just a wide range of issues that
you can come across as a student.

715
00:47:45,400 --> 00:47:48,030
And so, we are here to support you.

716
00:47:48,030 --> 00:47:53,560
And so student advocacy and support is
a great place in regards to resources.

717
00:47:53,560 --> 00:47:56,440
And not just resources on campus,

718
00:47:56,440 --> 00:48:03,230
they can also direct you to resources
within the Indianapolis area as well.

719
00:48:03,230 --> 00:48:07,480
>> Okay, so
let's throw a couple of names out there.

720
00:48:07,480 --> 00:48:10,180
Chickfila, all right.

721
00:48:10,180 --> 00:48:12,270
Panda Express, okay?

722
00:48:12,270 --> 00:48:15,180
And all you can eat cafeteria, okay?

723
00:48:15,180 --> 00:48:18,170
With amazing food options.

724
00:48:18,170 --> 00:48:23,390
Einstein brothers,
lot of food options that are on campus,

725
00:48:23,390 --> 00:48:27,750
Dr. Bradshaw and or Dr Weldy.

726
00:48:27,750 --> 00:48:32,359
What's food going to look
like on campus this fall.

727
00:48:32,359 --> 00:48:37,120
>> I will start and Dr.
Weldy, I'll hand it off to you.

728
00:48:37,120 --> 00:48:41,400
That is a common and a very popular
question that we're receiving right now

729
00:48:41,400 --> 00:48:44,960
and we're working behind the scenes
actually, on some resolutions.

730
00:48:44,960 --> 00:48:51,300
Our first step is to really align the meal
plan packages with the academic calendar.

731
00:48:51,300 --> 00:48:55,560
As well as for
those students living on campus,

732
00:48:55,560 --> 00:49:00,390
and we have dining available in the Tower,
but also in the Campus Center.

733
00:49:00,390 --> 00:49:05,420
And we're also going through protocol
right now with social distancing

734
00:49:05,420 --> 00:49:11,240
guidelines in order to make sure that we
meet those and that is a safe environment.

735
00:49:11,240 --> 00:49:14,880
Dr. Weldy, do you have anything additional?

736
00:49:14,880 --> 00:49:19,599
>> Nothing really but only that
the Division of Student Affairs with

737
00:49:19,599 --> 00:49:24,980
Housing and Residence Life, we do work
in collaboration with dining services.

738
00:49:24,980 --> 00:49:30,190
And so, it's a great opportunity,

739
00:49:30,190 --> 00:49:35,360
I think for you in regards to dining
services because they provide.

740
00:49:35,360 --> 00:49:39,910
They really go out of their way
to accommodate our students.

741
00:49:39,910 --> 00:49:44,610
If you have any food allergies or
things like that.

742
00:49:44,610 --> 00:49:50,710
Our chefs and staff there are definitely
willing to work with you.

743
00:49:50,710 --> 00:49:52,450
>> And just so
everyone is aware we will have dining.

744
00:49:52,450 --> 00:49:55,300
I mean, that is a question we get a lot.

745
00:49:55,300 --> 00:50:00,000
We will have dining available for
students, faculty and staff.

746
00:50:00,000 --> 00:50:01,579
>> Right, that question came from Alicia.

747
00:50:01,579 --> 00:50:06,320
I'm gonna tell you what,
Alicia when we get all those answers,

748
00:50:06,320 --> 00:50:08,890
you get a Chickfili,
a chicken sandwich on me, all right?

749
00:50:08,890 --> 00:50:10,830
So that's my commitment to you.

750
00:50:10,830 --> 00:50:15,849
All right, we're going to keep it
going with the on campus experience

751
00:50:15,849 --> 00:50:18,810
this one's from Maverick - great name.

752
00:50:18,810 --> 00:50:22,369
I have applied for work study employment,

753
00:50:22,369 --> 00:50:25,880
I wanted to know if those would still
be available to those who apply.

754
00:50:25,880 --> 00:50:30,829
So work study employment,
who would like to take that?

755
00:50:30,829 --> 00:50:33,970
>> I can take a try, Errol.

756
00:50:33,970 --> 00:50:38,760
Student Employment is a key feature
of the IUPUI student experience and

757
00:50:38,760 --> 00:50:43,579
we are particularly focused on
those students that qualify for

758
00:50:43,579 --> 00:50:46,380
federal work study funds.

759
00:50:46,380 --> 00:50:50,500
And we in fact we even have a job portal,
Jag Jobs where students can look for

760
00:50:50,500 --> 00:50:53,240
available jobs on campus.

761
00:50:53,240 --> 00:50:58,190
Since the change in our
mode of operation actually,

762
00:50:58,190 --> 00:51:01,630
one might think that students weren't
able to work anymore in remote settings.

763
00:51:01,630 --> 00:51:03,460
Actually quite the opposite is true.

764
00:51:03,460 --> 00:51:07,830
And that we had many students that were
able to work remotely in their on campus

765
00:51:07,830 --> 00:51:16,650
jobs and, many great supervisors has
ton of fabulous Employment Supervisors.

766
00:51:16,650 --> 00:51:21,140
That went out of their way to create
valuable student work experiences.

767
00:51:21,140 --> 00:51:24,460
So, there's a process through
which you look for a job but

768
00:51:24,460 --> 00:51:29,070
there will be student employment
opportunities available particularly,

769
00:51:29,070 --> 00:51:33,359
it related to the student that
Want Federal Work Study questions.

770
00:51:33,359 --> 00:51:39,550
>> Errol, if I can give a plug for
the Division of Student Affairs,

771
00:51:39,550 --> 00:51:44,890
we employ roughly about 250 or
so students.

772
00:51:44,890 --> 00:51:48,670
We would not be able to do what we do
in the Division of Student Affairs if

773
00:51:48,670 --> 00:51:51,660
it were not for our student employees.

774
00:51:51,660 --> 00:51:56,290
So the Division of Student Affairs
is made up of nine units.

775
00:51:56,290 --> 00:51:59,800
You are familiar with some of
them Housing and Residence Life,

776
00:51:59,800 --> 00:52:05,880
also in regards to the Campus Center and
in some of the operations there.

777
00:52:05,880 --> 00:52:11,070
And so, we are definitely excited
about our student employees and

778
00:52:11,070 --> 00:52:14,980
the work they do for us.

779
00:52:14,980 --> 00:52:19,500
>> Okay, and as we're talking about jobs,

780
00:52:19,500 --> 00:52:25,700
I'd be remiss if I did not mention
that one of the reasons so

781
00:52:25,700 --> 00:52:29,520
many students come to IUPUI
Is our location and

782
00:52:29,520 --> 00:52:35,849
just the accessibility of internships,
co ops.

783
00:52:35,849 --> 00:52:40,490
The jobs that students lead to afterwards.

784
00:52:40,490 --> 00:52:45,540
I affectionately call IUPUI the home of
the semester and year long internships.

785
00:52:45,540 --> 00:52:50,520
So unlike other schools that are further
where you have to drive into the city,

786
00:52:50,520 --> 00:52:51,990
it's right in our backyard.

787
00:52:51,990 --> 00:52:55,250
So, we have some great
offerings that are on campus.

788
00:52:55,250 --> 00:52:59,970
But we have some amazing connections
that are within the city.

789
00:52:59,970 --> 00:53:02,329
Kennedy, I have not forgotten about you.

790
00:53:02,329 --> 00:53:03,839
I see you are out there.

791
00:53:03,839 --> 00:53:06,160
We're going to go back to Summer Bridge.

792
00:53:06,160 --> 00:53:13,900
So Dr. Gladden and Miss Bowman,
will scholarships cover bridge?

793
00:53:13,900 --> 00:53:16,540
And how will scholarship covered
textbooks and meal plans, so

794
00:53:16,540 --> 00:53:19,900
it could be a mix of you, as well
as Dr. Bradshaw.

795
00:53:19,900 --> 00:53:23,650
So take it away.

796
00:53:23,650 --> 00:53:28,800
>> Well, here's the good news bridge week
is free so you won't need a scholarship to

797
00:53:28,800 --> 00:53:32,830
participate in that and I will then
turn it over to Dr. Bradshaw.

798
00:53:32,830 --> 00:53:37,490
>> Got to go ahead, I was going to say,
everyone gets a scholarship for

799
00:53:37,490 --> 00:53:40,050
bridge week.

800
00:53:40,050 --> 00:53:44,400
That is great that you have the
opportunity to attend that week without

801
00:53:44,400 --> 00:53:45,640
having to pay for it.

802
00:53:45,640 --> 00:53:51,930
So what a great experience and
in regards to, Errol.

803
00:53:51,930 --> 00:53:58,090
The other question was about the room and
board correct and also textbooks?

804
00:53:58,090 --> 00:53:59,590
>> Correct, that is correct, yes.

805
00:53:59,590 --> 00:54:02,060
>> I will have Marvin Smith
answer that question.

806
00:54:02,060 --> 00:54:06,580
But one thing I do want to say about
scholarships and financial aid,

807
00:54:06,580 --> 00:54:10,610
Marvin's office is available to
answer any specific questions.

808
00:54:10,610 --> 00:54:13,430
And, we do work individually one
on one with all students and

809
00:54:13,430 --> 00:54:17,470
we also understand financial
situations have changed.

810
00:54:17,470 --> 00:54:20,680
And we want to be able to
have that opportunity.

811
00:54:20,680 --> 00:54:24,300
And so if you're in a situation you
need assistance, our doors are open.

812
00:54:24,300 --> 00:54:25,520
We want to have a conversation.

813
00:54:25,520 --> 00:54:27,470
We want to learn about
your situation as well.

814
00:54:27,470 --> 00:54:30,520
Very, very important to us as
we transition to the fall.

815
00:54:30,520 --> 00:54:35,260
With that said, Marvin,
you want to ask her the specifics?

816
00:54:35,260 --> 00:54:40,440
>> Sure, financial aid questions always
seems to be answered with it depends.

817
00:54:40,440 --> 00:54:45,270
So I really want to echo what Dr.
Bradshaw said.

818
00:54:45,270 --> 00:54:51,760
Is that if you have any questions about
whether you have enough scholarship and

819
00:54:51,760 --> 00:54:56,800
financial aid to pay for
your living expenses,

820
00:54:56,800 --> 00:55:00,380
your residence hall expenses,
your books, supplies,

821
00:55:00,380 --> 00:55:06,160
your travel costs, we really talk
about at the student success session.

822
00:55:06,160 --> 00:55:11,040
We want you to do the math and
try to figure out how much is gonna

823
00:55:11,040 --> 00:55:15,400
cover tuition and
how much is gonna cover your other costs.

824
00:55:15,400 --> 00:55:22,940
I encourage you to reach out to us,
email us finaid@iupui.edu.

825
00:55:22,940 --> 00:55:27,950
And we can provide some
individualized guidance on what it

826
00:55:27,950 --> 00:55:31,020
looks like you're going to qualify for.

827
00:55:31,020 --> 00:55:35,350
There are steps that you need to
take to finalize a student loan,

828
00:55:35,350 --> 00:55:41,720
if that might be something that you
need to help you pay for college costs.

829
00:55:41,720 --> 00:55:44,920
And then the other thing I want to echo
that Dr. Bradshaw said is we know that

830
00:55:44,920 --> 00:55:51,790
folks have been impacted by
unemployment and coronavirus.

831
00:55:51,790 --> 00:55:53,740
And again, I encourage you to reach out.

832
00:55:53,740 --> 00:56:00,610
We can do a re-evaluation of
your financial aid eligibility.

833
00:56:00,610 --> 00:56:03,720
We have something called
special circumstance form.

834
00:56:03,720 --> 00:56:07,359
I encourage you to reach out and
talk to a financial aid counselor and

835
00:56:07,359 --> 00:56:10,390
put that contact information in the chat.

836
00:56:10,390 --> 00:56:14,380
And we can get an idea on
how that process works, and

837
00:56:14,380 --> 00:56:20,290
whether it's going to be beneficial
in your unique circumstances.

838
00:56:20,290 --> 00:56:22,599
>> Thank you, Marvin.

839
00:56:22,599 --> 00:56:28,570
Financial aid can sometimes be scary for
students and parents.

840
00:56:28,570 --> 00:56:32,680
But something that we talked about in
terms of the office of admissions is

841
00:56:32,680 --> 00:56:35,400
there's money you have to pay back and
money you don't.

842
00:56:35,400 --> 00:56:40,060
Money that you have to pay back
are going to be your loans, right?

843
00:56:40,060 --> 00:56:43,310
Money you don't have to pay back
are going to be things called grants and

844
00:56:43,310 --> 00:56:44,440
scholarships, right?

845
00:56:44,440 --> 00:56:48,650
And so if you want to have a high level
conversation to just understand what that

846
00:56:48,650 --> 00:56:52,570
looks like, as Marvin said,
reach out to our office.

847
00:56:52,570 --> 00:56:59,380
We can walk you through that, and then
get you connected for those next steps.

848
00:56:59,380 --> 00:57:00,700
So thank you for that.

849
00:57:00,700 --> 00:57:05,770
And so let's go to, housing is a hot
topic, housing is a hot topic, Dr.

850
00:57:05,770 --> 00:57:06,770
Weldy is smiling.

851
00:57:06,770 --> 00:57:10,690
I see him smiling and we want to make
sure we get those questions answered.

852
00:57:10,690 --> 00:57:15,430
So let me throw a couple
that are out there.

853
00:57:15,430 --> 00:57:19,380
So one is can I find a roommate
even though I haven't yet

854
00:57:19,380 --> 00:57:22,410
received the housing contract?

855
00:57:22,410 --> 00:57:25,580
Dr. Weldy?

856
00:57:25,580 --> 00:57:31,700
>> The answer to that question is yes,
you can find a roommate.

857
00:57:31,700 --> 00:57:39,720
But if you want to make sure [LAUGH]
that you have a roommate and

858
00:57:39,720 --> 00:57:44,390
you have a housing assignment,

859
00:57:44,390 --> 00:57:47,700
be sure to submit that contract.

860
00:57:47,700 --> 00:57:49,549
But the answer to the question is yes.

861
00:57:49,549 --> 00:57:53,260
>> Okay,
I'm going to ask another housing question.

862
00:57:53,260 --> 00:57:58,079
So there are still those that are out
there waiting for their housing contract.

863
00:57:58,079 --> 00:58:02,920
And your team has been doing a great job
of getting them out in a methodical way

864
00:58:02,920 --> 00:58:05,900
and ensuring that students
are being communicated with.

865
00:58:05,900 --> 00:58:09,760
Can you say anything about the next
wave of outbound contracts for

866
00:58:09,760 --> 00:58:12,290
those who are still out there waiting
to see where they're going to be living in

867
00:58:12,290 --> 00:58:13,720
the fall with us?

868
00:58:13,720 --> 00:58:20,020
>> Yeah, sure, so housing contracts
offers go out every Thursday.

869
00:58:20,020 --> 00:58:23,990
And I understand that I haven't received
my latest update in regards to this week.

870
00:58:23,990 --> 00:58:28,560
And I can tell you that last week
we had about 100 or so go out,

871
00:58:28,560 --> 00:58:32,000
and I expect more this week as well.

872
00:58:32,000 --> 00:58:38,450
So every Thursday, the housing
offers go out and so they're coming.

873
00:58:38,450 --> 00:58:41,510
[LAUGH] They're coming.

874
00:58:41,510 --> 00:58:43,160
>> Okay, very good,

875
00:58:43,160 --> 00:58:47,550
and a word about housing before
I move on to my next question.

876
00:58:47,550 --> 00:58:52,380
We know that this is one of the number
one questions that many of you all have.

877
00:58:52,380 --> 00:58:58,400
And because we understand the value
of the housing experience for you all

878
00:58:58,400 --> 00:59:02,170
that are looking to come to college,
we want to make sure that we get it right.

879
00:59:02,170 --> 00:59:07,250
And so that our commitment to you is as we
go through from here and moving forward,

880
00:59:07,250 --> 00:59:09,740
we're going to partner with you and
as we get new decisions,

881
00:59:09,740 --> 00:59:11,569
we'll make sure that we let you know.

882
00:59:11,569 --> 00:59:14,650
And so thank you for
your patience with us.

883
00:59:14,650 --> 00:59:20,220
And just know that the amount of care were
taking isn't full attention in respect

884
00:59:20,220 --> 00:59:23,200
of the fact that you all are making
the decision to send your parents and

885
00:59:23,200 --> 00:59:26,230
your loved ones to us.

886
00:59:26,230 --> 00:59:29,470
And we receive that and
we hold that in highest regard and

887
00:59:29,470 --> 00:59:34,190
students that you want to have
the best four years of your life and

888
00:59:34,190 --> 00:59:35,829
the housing experience as a part of that.

889
00:59:35,829 --> 00:59:39,140
So I wanna thank Dr. Weldy and
his team for what they're doing

890
00:59:39,140 --> 00:59:43,619
to get the answers and to make sure
that we are solidified in this regard.

891
00:59:43,619 --> 00:59:47,470
So let's go to Dr. Gladden.

892
00:59:47,470 --> 00:59:49,210
This one is from Madison.

893
00:59:49,210 --> 00:59:51,800
And before I start, we are at six but

894
00:59:51,800 --> 00:59:56,770
we've got some really great questions
that are coming in and nobody is left.

895
00:59:56,770 --> 01:00:00,930
So we're gonna extend it for
about another 15 minutes and

896
01:00:00,930 --> 01:00:03,560
keep sending us the questions
if you have to go.

897
01:00:03,560 --> 01:00:07,740
This will be recorded and we will send
this out in a follow up email with all of

898
01:00:07,740 --> 01:00:10,290
the links below, so feel free to leave.

899
01:00:10,290 --> 01:00:13,450
Madison asks, what about finals?

900
01:00:13,450 --> 01:00:16,010
Are those gonna be online?

901
01:00:16,010 --> 01:00:21,550
And how does that winter session work with
the overlap of fall and spring semester?

902
01:00:21,550 --> 01:00:25,010
So we're talking about now
the academic experience again.

903
01:00:25,010 --> 01:00:27,910
Dr. Gladden?

904
01:00:27,910 --> 01:00:32,369
>> Thank you, Errol, I appreciate
the opportunity to talk about this.

905
01:00:32,369 --> 01:00:37,640
And I'm sharing a graphic that
you should be able to see now.

906
01:00:37,640 --> 01:00:41,540
This is a common question and
particularly it relates to the schedule.

907
01:00:41,540 --> 01:00:47,130
So to help make it the easiest
way to understand it is to

908
01:00:47,130 --> 01:00:50,380
think about our fall semester of 2020.

909
01:00:50,380 --> 01:00:54,819
And all of our classes as I
mentioned earlier will happen in

910
01:00:54,819 --> 01:01:00,160
a combination of face-to-face,
remote, and online experiences.

911
01:01:00,160 --> 01:01:03,160
And that will happen from
August 24th to November 20th.

912
01:01:03,160 --> 01:01:08,340
The full fall semester runs until December
20th and that will be a 16 weeks semester.

913
01:01:08,340 --> 01:01:12,460
A number of classes will
be 16 weeks in nature.

914
01:01:12,460 --> 01:01:15,920
That's the most common form for classes.

915
01:01:15,920 --> 01:01:20,710
The last three weeks of that 16 weeks,
from November 30 to December 20,

916
01:01:20,710 --> 01:01:22,359
will be fully online.

917
01:01:22,359 --> 01:01:27,010
So if you would have a final in that
period, that final would be online.

918
01:01:27,010 --> 01:01:31,950
There are some courses that
are shifting to the 13 week period.

919
01:01:31,950 --> 01:01:35,329
And it's very possible that if you have
one of those courses is 13 weeks that

920
01:01:35,329 --> 01:01:38,650
the final could take place
right before Thanksgiving.

921
01:01:38,650 --> 01:01:42,069
And that final could be in a classroom or

922
01:01:42,069 --> 01:01:46,550
a testing center or
something along those lines on campus.

923
01:01:46,550 --> 01:01:49,480
The spring semester will
run from January 19th,

924
01:01:49,480 --> 01:01:52,859
which was actually starting
a week late until May 9th.

925
01:01:52,859 --> 01:01:56,820
The first three weeks of that
semester will be online only.

926
01:01:56,820 --> 01:02:00,420
And again, the last three weeks of fall
in the first three weeks of spring being

927
01:02:00,420 --> 01:02:04,800
online are to help protect
the safety of the IUPUI community.

928
01:02:04,800 --> 01:02:09,430
First and foremost,
we're concerned about safety.

929
01:02:09,430 --> 01:02:13,869
But after those first three weeks in
the spring semester, we'll move to

930
01:02:13,869 --> 01:02:20,050
the same mix, in person and online
experiences from February 8th to May 9th.

931
01:02:20,050 --> 01:02:23,480
In addition,
this year we're offering something new,

932
01:02:23,480 --> 01:02:30,050
the opportunity to take some additional
online courses in that winter period.

933
01:02:30,050 --> 01:02:33,650
First of all, let me say, the winter
session as you've heard about or

934
01:02:33,650 --> 01:02:37,240
read about is not mandatory in any way,
shape or form.

935
01:02:37,240 --> 01:02:43,950
Instead, it may be an opportunity to get
ahead, and get ahead at no extra cost.

936
01:02:43,950 --> 01:02:47,589
So as a part of the fall semester,
there will be a three week online

937
01:02:47,589 --> 01:02:53,500
session that'll run from
November 30th to December 20th.

938
01:02:53,500 --> 01:02:57,200
And that will be a part
of the fall semester.

939
01:02:57,200 --> 01:03:02,550
And can be already, if you've only got 15
credit hours, if you took 3 credit hours

940
01:03:02,550 --> 01:03:05,500
then, that would actually not cost you
any additional money because of banded

941
01:03:05,500 --> 01:03:10,630
tuition which covers the same price for
12 to 18 credit hours.

942
01:03:10,630 --> 01:03:15,540
In the spring semesters, there's two
options, one is another three week format,

943
01:03:15,540 --> 01:03:18,500
which runs from January
19th to February 7th.

944
01:03:18,500 --> 01:03:22,910
And then there's a six week format,
which starts on December 21st and

945
01:03:22,910 --> 01:03:24,500
runs through February 7th.

946
01:03:24,500 --> 01:03:27,890
Both of those are part
of the spring semester.

947
01:03:27,890 --> 01:03:32,480
So the next logical question is, how will
I know about these course offerings?

948
01:03:32,480 --> 01:03:37,300
Well, for the spring semester, but
the three week session in January and

949
01:03:37,300 --> 01:03:41,619
the six week session that would
run December through January,

950
01:03:41,619 --> 01:03:44,410
those course offerings
will become available and

951
01:03:44,410 --> 01:03:49,700
be widely promoted prior to
the registration for the spring semester.

952
01:03:49,700 --> 01:03:53,300
For the three weeks session in the fall,
that will become,

953
01:03:53,300 --> 01:03:58,339
those courses will be communicated
about once you're on campus.

954
01:03:58,339 --> 01:04:01,770
>> Very good.

955
01:04:01,770 --> 01:04:07,550
So after Thanksgiving,
I'm an IUPUI student.

956
01:04:07,550 --> 01:04:11,520
I'm gonna be able to do everything online,
whether it's in my residence hall or

957
01:04:11,520 --> 01:04:14,980
it's back home with my family,
I'm gonna be virtual.

958
01:04:14,980 --> 01:04:19,090
And then those additional sessions,
it's a chance for

959
01:04:19,090 --> 01:04:22,520
me to really get ahead of the game.

960
01:04:22,520 --> 01:04:26,820
So I'm going to go to Dr. Weldy as we
talked about this class structure.

961
01:04:26,820 --> 01:04:31,730
And keep in mind, the decision is
a tough one by Dr. Paydar, Dr.

962
01:04:31,730 --> 01:04:34,050
Johnson who are the leaders of our campus.

963
01:04:34,050 --> 01:04:38,010
But we know that flu season,
okay, is an area,

964
01:04:38,010 --> 01:04:40,680
is a time as we look across
the United States within higher

965
01:04:40,680 --> 01:04:44,099
education that we need to be
prepared to keep you all safe.

966
01:04:44,099 --> 01:04:49,849
And so making this challenging
decision is one that puts

967
01:04:49,849 --> 01:04:52,319
your safety at the forefront.

968
01:04:52,319 --> 01:04:57,059
But we're up for the challenge to make
sure that you all have a dynamic, virtual,

969
01:04:57,059 --> 01:04:58,890
and online experience.

970
01:04:58,890 --> 01:05:02,250
So, Dr. Weldy, the winter session happens.

971
01:05:02,250 --> 01:05:09,010
It's going over through the month of
December into January over Christmas.

972
01:05:09,010 --> 01:05:11,270
Will students have to leave
the residence halls if they're living in

973
01:05:11,270 --> 01:05:13,340
the residence halls?

974
01:05:13,340 --> 01:05:14,960
>> Errol,

975
01:05:14,960 --> 01:05:21,240
what we're asking is that students who
will be living in the residence halls,

976
01:05:21,240 --> 01:05:25,920
come Thanksgiving break,
we are asking students to return home.

977
01:05:25,920 --> 01:05:30,170
Now, we do understand that

978
01:05:30,170 --> 01:05:34,020
certain students do have
extenuating circumstances.

979
01:05:34,020 --> 01:05:38,260
For example, if you're
an international student or maybe

980
01:05:38,260 --> 01:05:45,859
if you're a domestic student and
there are other situations that

981
01:05:45,859 --> 01:05:52,600
would keep you from being
able to return home.

982
01:05:52,600 --> 01:05:57,079
What we're looking at is
setting up a process where

983
01:05:57,079 --> 01:06:04,809
a student can basically petition to
stay in the halls during that time.

984
01:06:04,809 --> 01:06:09,210
But I mind you,
I mean what I said before in regards to,

985
01:06:09,210 --> 01:06:12,660
it must be extenuating circumstances.

986
01:06:12,660 --> 01:06:17,310
So there is no guarantee that
if you petition to stay,

987
01:06:17,310 --> 01:06:22,420
that you will be granted approval to stay.

988
01:06:22,420 --> 01:06:27,720
But we are expecting all students
who are able to return home over

989
01:06:27,720 --> 01:06:31,540
break that you do return
home over that break.

990
01:06:31,540 --> 01:06:35,030
Right, so we're not going to put anybody out.

991
01:06:35,030 --> 01:06:36,349
Let's be very clear about that.

992
01:06:36,349 --> 01:06:38,030
We're going to work with you,

993
01:06:38,030 --> 01:06:43,200
your families, during that time
period if for whatever reason.

994
01:06:43,200 --> 01:06:47,650
You going home is something
that is a challenge to you.

995
01:06:47,650 --> 01:06:52,559
But again, as Dr. Weldy mentioned,
it's the height of flu season and

996
01:06:52,559 --> 01:06:57,740
we want to make sure that we're preparing
in advance to keep the campus safe and

997
01:06:57,740 --> 01:07:00,200
keep you safe, first and foremost.

998
01:07:00,200 --> 01:07:06,040
So for those who are going to be on campus,
there's a question about masks.

999
01:07:06,040 --> 01:07:09,119
Is everybody going to be
required to wear masks?

1000
01:07:09,119 --> 01:07:11,900
And then this is all from Macy, so,

1001
01:07:11,900 --> 01:07:15,910
is there a student health center on
campus, and is there a cost to use it?

1002
01:07:15,910 --> 01:07:20,119
Or is that included in
a student's tuition and fees,

1003
01:07:20,119 --> 01:07:23,190
and what are those those days and
hours that it's gonna be open?

1004
01:07:23,190 --> 01:07:25,710
So it's a kinda a two-part question.

1005
01:07:25,710 --> 01:07:28,690
What's the on campus experience gonna
look like as it relates to mass,

1006
01:07:28,690 --> 01:07:32,750
and where do I go if I want to get checked
up and make sure that my health is okay?

1007
01:07:32,750 --> 01:07:37,400
I'll leave it open for
anyone to take the same this question.

1008
01:07:37,400 --> 01:07:44,109
>> Well, I'll take the part in
regards to campus health center.

1009
01:07:44,109 --> 01:07:48,420
So we have two locations on campus.

1010
01:07:48,420 --> 01:07:51,720
One location is in the campus center,

1011
01:07:51,720 --> 01:07:55,309
which is really our
student union on campus.

1012
01:07:55,309 --> 01:08:00,869
And so
we have a student health center there.

1013
01:08:00,869 --> 01:08:04,930
Our main health center for

1014
01:08:04,930 --> 01:08:10,830
students is also over in Coleman Hall,
on the first floor of Coleman Hall.

1015
01:08:10,830 --> 01:08:14,089
And so open Monday through Fridays.

1016
01:08:14,089 --> 01:08:18,150
Now because of COVID-19, there will be,

1017
01:08:18,150 --> 01:08:23,440
obviously some social distancing and
other things that will initiate

1018
01:08:23,440 --> 01:08:27,900
in order to keep everyone safe,
all of our students safe.

1019
01:08:27,900 --> 01:08:33,690
But we do have campus health
center on campus where you can be

1020
01:08:33,690 --> 01:08:36,310
seen by health professionals.

1021
01:08:36,310 --> 01:08:40,330
>> Okay, all right.

1022
01:08:40,330 --> 01:08:42,400
So the next question is,

1023
01:08:42,400 --> 01:08:46,100
in regards to loans, and
it's a broad question.

1024
01:08:46,100 --> 01:08:52,150
I think it's a great question because
a lot of people don't know how loans work.

1025
01:08:52,150 --> 01:08:59,609
We have to pay it back, but what is a loan
first and foremost, and how do they work?

1026
01:08:59,609 --> 01:09:04,270
And what's the difference between a loan
extended through university versus,

1027
01:09:04,270 --> 01:09:06,060
say, a private loan?

1028
01:09:06,060 --> 01:09:14,120
>> I would ask you, Errol, just get
back to the question about the mask.

1029
01:09:14,120 --> 01:09:15,259
I think that's important.

1030
01:09:15,259 --> 01:09:16,259
>> Sure.

1031
01:09:16,259 --> 01:09:17,259
Absolutely, absolutely.

1032
01:09:17,259 --> 01:09:18,700
>> And I will go on to Marvin for
this next question.

1033
01:09:18,700 --> 01:09:21,430
I think that's a really
important question.

1034
01:09:21,430 --> 01:09:25,660
And IU has established guidelines and

1035
01:09:25,660 --> 01:09:31,150
a mask will be required on campus,
in the classroom, and in common areas

1036
01:09:31,150 --> 01:09:36,580
where there are other people, including
visitors to campus, all faculty and staff.

1037
01:09:36,580 --> 01:09:42,290
The university will be providing two masks
per student, and they will be cloth mask

1038
01:09:42,290 --> 01:09:48,250
which you can put them in a laundry, and
there will be guidelines around that.

1039
01:09:48,250 --> 01:09:52,420
Obviously, if you're in private spaces and
not around other individuals,

1040
01:09:52,420 --> 01:09:55,360
you won't be required to wear that mask,

1041
01:09:55,360 --> 01:09:59,980
but that is a safety precaution
that we are implementing right now.

1042
01:09:59,980 --> 01:10:02,650
I mean it started here June 1st.

1043
01:10:02,650 --> 01:10:05,770
Some of the campus has started
to open up a little bit.

1044
01:10:05,770 --> 01:10:08,199
Also Chancellor Paydar
mentioned in the beginning

1045
01:10:08,199 --> 01:10:13,060
about IU health relationship
with IUPUI and

1046
01:10:13,060 --> 01:10:17,910
the availability of that testing is
really important, that's free of charge.

1047
01:10:17,910 --> 01:10:21,690
It's a benefit that we're providing to
anyone, faculty, staff, and students.

1048
01:10:21,690 --> 01:10:25,260
And so if someone believes they
are sick and would want to be tested,

1049
01:10:25,260 --> 01:10:29,630
it's really there's a easy
way to do that as a student.

1050
01:10:29,630 --> 01:10:31,410
But also as faculty and staff members.

1051
01:10:31,410 --> 01:10:34,940
>> Okay, thank you Dr. Bradshaw.

1052
01:10:34,940 --> 01:10:40,530
Now we'll go back to the loan question and
we'll bring our executive director for

1053
01:10:40,530 --> 01:10:43,090
Student Financial Services Marvin Smith.

1054
01:10:43,090 --> 01:10:47,110
>> Yeah, student loan process
is tricky especially if you

1055
01:10:47,110 --> 01:10:50,050
haven't ever gone through
this process before.

1056
01:10:50,050 --> 01:10:54,340
So one of the requirements of
receiving federal student loans

1057
01:10:54,340 --> 01:10:57,820
is to file the FAFSA,
that's the first step.

1058
01:10:57,820 --> 01:11:04,640
So folks that file the FAFSA, they likely
are eligible for a federal student loan.

1059
01:11:04,640 --> 01:11:09,980
That loan might be subsidized or
the interest is paid by the government.

1060
01:11:09,980 --> 01:11:13,750
It might be unsubsidized where
the interest is accruing.

1061
01:11:13,750 --> 01:11:18,860
The step that you have to go through is
to decide how much you want to borrow and

1062
01:11:18,860 --> 01:11:25,370
then accept that in self service and
then sign a master promissory note.

1063
01:11:25,370 --> 01:11:31,870
So some of those details we can walk you
through, you can ask us individually.

1064
01:11:31,870 --> 01:11:38,410
We talk about it in depth that
the students success sessions and,

1065
01:11:38,410 --> 01:11:44,440
one of the things we say is only borrow
what you need, and your goal should

1066
01:11:44,440 --> 01:11:52,040
be to graduate from IUPUI as quickly as
possible with as little debt as possible.

1067
01:11:52,040 --> 01:11:55,850
And I think that the financial
aid counselors can help

1068
01:11:55,850 --> 01:12:03,460
devise a plan to make sure you're only
borrowing absolutely what you need.

1069
01:12:03,460 --> 01:12:08,480
>> Thank you Marvin and my advice to you

1070
01:12:08,480 --> 01:12:12,250
to anyone that wants to consider loans,
talk to somebody here.

1071
01:12:12,250 --> 01:12:16,440
We'll break it down for you,
we'll make sure that you understand it,

1072
01:12:16,440 --> 01:12:18,679
we won't make the decision for you, okay?

1073
01:12:18,679 --> 01:12:22,710
Because that is going to be a call that
you and your family need to make, but

1074
01:12:22,710 --> 01:12:25,210
we'll make sure that you have
a full understanding of what it is.

1075
01:12:25,210 --> 01:12:27,670
We're going to do one more question.

1076
01:12:27,670 --> 01:12:29,830
This has been great.

1077
01:12:29,830 --> 01:12:33,500
You all have asked some
really thoughtful questions.

1078
01:12:33,500 --> 01:12:37,550
We're gonna bring it back
to the classroom experience

1079
01:12:37,550 --> 01:12:41,190
that we're bringing to all
of our incoming students.

1080
01:12:41,190 --> 01:12:45,950
So, Dr. Gladden,
this one has to do with online classes.

1081
01:12:45,950 --> 01:12:49,670
What is the typical response time for
teachers for

1082
01:12:49,670 --> 01:12:52,340
student questions on assignments?

1083
01:12:52,340 --> 01:12:56,540
And how would a student get help if
they needed it during the online period,

1084
01:12:56,540 --> 01:12:58,320
and that's from Jade.

1085
01:12:58,320 --> 01:13:03,920
>> Actually, the online environment is
one where students tend to have more

1086
01:13:03,920 --> 01:13:09,210
frequent interactions with faculty
members because of things like threaded

1087
01:13:09,210 --> 01:13:14,510
discussions and a number of different
assignments that might occur.

1088
01:13:14,510 --> 01:13:18,730
And people are doing work at all hours
of the day and so the faculty members

1089
01:13:18,730 --> 01:13:23,190
engaging with that course on a more on a,
it's not like a scheduled class time

1090
01:13:23,190 --> 01:13:26,620
when they go deliver a lecture and
then they go do other work.

1091
01:13:26,620 --> 01:13:31,400
The online class is something and
having taught online, I can speak to this.

1092
01:13:31,400 --> 01:13:35,420
It's something that you're always paying
attention to, so I would expect that

1093
01:13:35,420 --> 01:13:41,380
response time is within 24 hours for
sure, and often much sooner than that.

1094
01:13:41,380 --> 01:13:44,510
Personally as a faculty member, I like to

1095
01:13:44,510 --> 01:13:48,739
let the students that are in my class know
that if they send me an email that night,

1096
01:13:48,739 --> 01:13:52,020
they get a response the next morning for
sure.

1097
01:13:52,020 --> 01:13:55,660
>> Many of you have you all gone through
e-learning as a result of this COVID-19

1098
01:13:55,660 --> 01:13:56,800
period with your high schools.

1099
01:13:56,800 --> 01:13:59,890
I'd imagine some had
been positive experience,

1100
01:13:59,890 --> 01:14:02,650
some had been unfavorable experiences.

1101
01:14:02,650 --> 01:14:06,830
We're doing everything we can to make
sure it's as positive as it can be.

1102
01:14:06,830 --> 01:14:11,170
And so we're gonna keep shaping it and
giving

1103
01:14:11,170 --> 01:14:14,350
you information about what that classroom
experience is going to look like.

1104
01:14:14,350 --> 01:14:18,460
So we're going to pull up a slide and
we're gonna make some final comments for

1105
01:14:18,460 --> 01:14:24,100
you all to see on the screen,
wait a moment.

1106
01:14:24,100 --> 01:14:29,060
So this is a picture of a group
of individuals that many of you

1107
01:14:29,060 --> 01:14:34,440
all may already know that have been there
with you from the very beginning back in

1108
01:14:34,440 --> 01:14:39,560
the Fall of 2019 walking you through
every step in the admissions process.

1109
01:14:39,560 --> 01:14:43,929
This is the Office of
Undergraduate Admissions counseling team.

1110
01:14:43,929 --> 01:14:48,600
And so everybody that may not have gotten
their answers, their questions answered

1111
01:14:48,600 --> 01:14:52,660
will have the chance to and we're going
to put the link down in the bottom.

1112
01:14:52,660 --> 01:14:57,110
Submit a request for an individualized
appointment to speak with one

1113
01:14:57,110 --> 01:14:59,790
of these accomplished individuals.

1114
01:14:59,790 --> 01:15:04,390
Now keep in mind that you're at
a stage in terms of your transition

1115
01:15:04,390 --> 01:15:07,090
to where the admissions
counselors we're the generalists,

1116
01:15:07,090 --> 01:15:11,390
we'll help you understand IUPUI,
point you to resources.

1117
01:15:11,390 --> 01:15:14,000
There's plenty of experts
that are on this call.

1118
01:15:14,000 --> 01:15:16,650
But the academic advisor in your
school once go through your

1119
01:15:16,650 --> 01:15:20,060
student success session and
engage orientation experience,

1120
01:15:20,060 --> 01:15:23,210
that's going to be a huge resource for
you as well.

1121
01:15:23,210 --> 01:15:28,880
Furthermore, there's many academic
unit partners in terms of admissions,

1122
01:15:28,880 --> 01:15:31,550
staff members and
faculty that you can work with as well.

1123
01:15:31,550 --> 01:15:36,540
But if at any time,
you need to ask a question or you

1124
01:15:36,540 --> 01:15:40,179
get lost in the process or you're feeling
discouraged, don't check out on this.

1125
01:15:40,179 --> 01:15:42,800
Pick up the phone and call, okay.

1126
01:15:42,800 --> 01:15:47,250
And so stay up to date in terms of new
answers, you're going to go to this link

1127
01:15:47,250 --> 01:15:52,590
this website that you see on
the screen for new updates.

1128
01:15:52,590 --> 01:15:54,420
We're also going to proactively send this
to

1129
01:15:54,420 --> 01:15:57,080
your email, so parents make sure you're

1130
01:15:57,080 --> 01:16:00,350
ensuring that your students
are checking their email regularly.

1131
01:16:00,350 --> 01:16:05,350
And if you're not on the Class of
2024 Facebook group yet, please join,

1132
01:16:05,350 --> 01:16:08,469
it's in the bottom here and
we've added the link.

1133
01:16:08,469 --> 01:16:10,219
There's a lot of action and engagement.

1134
01:16:10,219 --> 01:16:15,380
When we see questions, we've got all
of these partners that you saw on

1135
01:16:15,380 --> 01:16:18,590
the panel and their team members
that are in there answering them.

1136
01:16:18,590 --> 01:16:19,590
But for the most part,

1137
01:16:19,590 --> 01:16:23,540
we want that to be a student experience
where you all are sharing information and

1138
01:16:23,540 --> 01:16:27,110
talking about ways to connect
in anticipation for the fall.

1139
01:16:27,110 --> 01:16:30,400
And of course as I mentioned before,
it's connect with one of the admissions

1140
01:16:30,400 --> 01:16:34,410
counselors but make sure you're also
connecting with your academic advisor so

1141
01:16:34,410 --> 01:16:39,020
that you have a direct
access to your school.

1142
01:16:39,020 --> 01:16:44,230
So with that being said, this is the end
of our new Jags question and answer.

1143
01:16:44,230 --> 01:16:48,260
There will be a follow up email that
will include a consolidation of all of

1144
01:16:48,260 --> 01:16:51,110
the links that we put in
the bottom of the chat.

1145
01:16:51,110 --> 01:16:54,530
So if you didn't get some of those links,
now that is coming to you.

1146
01:16:54,530 --> 01:16:58,580
And we're also going to get you
the information on how to register for

1147
01:16:58,580 --> 01:17:03,940
an individualized one on one
visit with our admissions team.

1148
01:17:03,940 --> 01:17:08,360
Remember, our admissions team is there to
give you the high level understanding, so

1149
01:17:08,360 --> 01:17:12,600
there's no such thing as a stupid question
or a question that shouldn't be asked.

1150
01:17:12,600 --> 01:17:16,260
And from there, we'll plug you into the
IUPUI resource that will get you the more

1151
01:17:16,260 --> 01:17:17,960
specific answer.

1152
01:17:17,960 --> 01:17:22,600
We're so excited to have all of you here
for the fall and we're thankful that you

1153
01:17:22,600 --> 01:17:26,710
all have stayed with us as we've
gone through this journey together.

1154
01:17:26,710 --> 01:17:30,170
It certainly has not been easy on us and

1155
01:17:30,170 --> 01:17:35,590
we imagine that it hasn't been easy on
you all, both students and parents but

1156
01:17:35,590 --> 01:17:38,880
we're going to do everything that we
can and continue to work tirelessly

1157
01:17:38,880 --> 01:17:43,480
to make sure that, when you walk
through the doors of IUPUI in the fall.

1158
01:17:43,480 --> 01:17:47,320
You're feeling incredibly special and
thankful that you chose this destination

1159
01:17:47,320 --> 01:17:50,480
to be the place that you're going to call
home for the next four years of your life.

1160
01:17:50,480 --> 01:17:51,870
Thank you all so much.

1161
01:17:51,870 --> 01:17:53,780
We look forward to seeing
you at orientation.

1162
01:17:53,780 --> 01:17:56,160
I look forward to seeing you
at summer bridge week and

1163
01:17:56,160 --> 01:17:57,810
definitely look forward to talking to you.

1164
01:17:57,810 --> 01:17:58,810
Have a great evening.
