Support Services

April 18th, 2020 - 5:44pm

A public health crisis, or other emergency situation, affects all members of the College of Marin community. Understanding the importance of support services during this time, we’ve collected and compiled information about health, well-being, employment, and more. This support services hub is designed to provide a central location for help with various needs arising from the pandemic. Check back frequently as these pages will be updated as additional information becomes available.

Offices and departments across campus are working together to continue supporting students during this difficult time. Many student services are being provided remotely—get contact information for these offices as well as community resources for food banks, financial assistance, employment/unemployment, undocumented students, and more.

While remote instruction has similarities to a face-to-face classroom, there are significant differences. Recognizing and responding to these differences is important for successful online teaching and learning. This page provides information about personal and professional support resources including health, well-being, and overcoming obstacles in the remote learning environment.

Working remotely requires skills and resources that may be less familiar than those we use on campus. We may need to expand our knowledge of online meeting spaces like Zoom, share files using OneDrive, or use different methods to connect with colleagues. These support services are designed to assist with the transition to remote work and to help us do the best we can—personally and professionally—while away from our desks.

We understand that as we move and adapt to support academic success remotely that challenges may arise. We are here to support you with any questions you may have related to accessible technology, the provision of accommodations, and accessibility considerations for faculty and their course content.
