Nashville State, Working to Keep the College Safe

  • In late spring 2020, the College created a COVID-19 Response Planning Task Force to develop an actionable phase plan, with guidelines and procedures that are routinely shared with internal stakeholders and external audiences. All procedures have been based on federal, state, and local guidelines associated with each campus and its respective communities. The now Ad Hoc Group, within the Business Continuity Committee, has been adjusting the phase plan, as needed, and communicating throughout the pandemic.
  • The Ad Hoc Group is chaired by Nicole Hubbs. Below are the members:
    • Nicole Hubbs, Director, Career Services
    • Jill Ferrand, Director of Human Resources
    • Tom Hayden, AVP, Office of Communications and Marketing
    • Chris Saunders, Executive Director, Operations and Facilities
    • Derrek Sheucraft, Director, Police Services
    • Kim Silverman, AVP, Academic Affairs for Extended Campuses
    • Derek Smith, Assistant Professor, STEM/member of Faculty Senate
  • The Task Force, now Ad Hoc Group, was created to protect the health and safety of the Nashville State community to inform all stakeholders of actions, guidelines, and procedures in a timely manner.
  • The College continues to communicate with faculty, staff, students, and external audiences.
  • A Nashville State COVID-19 resources page has been created to keep everyone updated. The page can be found on the main index of the college website. The college also has an alert banner at the top of the main index page of the website, which is updated as needed.
  • College leadership continues planning as the COVID-19 issue evolves.
  • The College continues to strongly encourage that everyone remains extra vigilant of their health and wellness.
