In these unique times of uncertainty, all Centura College locations have adjusted their educational training to provide students with online distance learning. This temporary shift in curriculum enables students to safely practice social distancing without discontinuing their educational journey.

Administrators and campus leadership have worked tirelessly to create strategies that enable learners to continue their schooling while being provided support during these unpredictable times. Centura College Campus Executive Directors have equipped instructors and their students with digital distance learning tools, “The change was difficult at first, but has turned into a creative dream.  Our instructors are learning how to have students do hands on labs while at home and watching them being done via video.  Our students have been able to continue their education, keeping pace for graduating on time, and have been appreciative of the hard work that the staff and faculty have been doing to make this work.” said Greg Daniels, Executive Campus Director of the Centura College, Newport News location.

While practicing this impermanent tactic of distance learning, Centura College Students will still have the opportunity to speak directly with fellow classmates and instructors in real-time using group conferencing and traditional electronic communication. Each Centura College campus has employed a variety of strategies based on the needs of their students. Students should check with their home campus to ensure they have all the tools they need to continue their education through this unique experience.

Wednesday, April 1st, Centura College’s Chesapeake campus collected food and beverage donations and assembled nearly 100 facial masks for healthcare workers within our community, all while practicing social distancing. This event was held so that the campus staff members could collect materials and food for individuals within the community who need extra supplies and support.

“We at Centura College Chesapeake wanted to provide support as communities struggle throughout our nation,” said Centura College Chesapeake’s Campus Executive Director Michael Bragg. “We made the decision to collect PPE and food to help make sure that basic needs for healthcare workers, who are on the front lines of this pandemic, and children, whom represent our future, can be met.”

The food and beverages were donated to Buffalow Family and Friends Community Days (BFFCD), which is a family-oriented organization that offers support, food and clothing to the Chesapeake community in Chesapeake, Virginia. Currently, BFFCD is together daily lunches for thousands of children since the schools were closed for the remainder of the year.

The facial masks will be donated to the The Chesapeake Taskforce on Aging which is a non-profit organization that focuses on providing quality of life for seniors within the community. The masks will go to home healthcare workers who are performing their duties within assisted living facilities and homes right here in Chesapeake.
