Goodwin College Response to coronavirus

Goodwin College of Professional Studies is dedicated to the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff. As we prepare for the new academic year at Drexel University, it is pertinent that we all follow the guidelines for a hybrid return to campus as outlined on the Drexel Response to Coronavirus website.

On the University site, you will find details on:

  • Health and Safety: including the return to campus plan, vaccinations, testing, monitoring your health, cleaning and sanitation
  • University Messages: the most-up-to-date information from President John Fry and University leadership
  • Frequently Asked Questions: details on planning a safe return, health and safety, as well as specific information for current students, prospective students, faculty and staff

Drexel University Return to Campus

Classes will be face-to-face or hybrid format, while the majority of classes will remain remote (check with your instructor about synchronous or asynchronous delivery).

  • At this time, and consistent with CDC and local health department guidance for Institutions of higher education, Drexel now requires all students and employees — vaccinated or not — to wear a face mask indoors in all public and shared spaces.

Resources and Facilities

The health, safety and well-being of our community is our first priority. Explore these facilities updates and resources to help you navigate the return to campus. Please visit our Academic Resources page for a full list of available support — from essay reviews and math tutoring to program-specific resources and more.

Office of Counseling and Health Services for Full- and Part-Time Students

Drexel's counseling services are provided free of charge to all full-time students who are actively enrolled in a current term. Part-time students are offered a one-time consultation to assess their needs and to figure out how the Drexel Counseling Center may assist them further. While typically the Drexel Counseling Center would be bound to seeing online students who are able to make it to campus due to Pennsylvania licensure restrictions, there are some states allowing Drexel to practice and see online students who are full-time and residing out of state at this time.

If a student is currently residing outside of Pennsylvania or the surrounding area and would prefer to connect with a therapist close to home who can provide ongoing therapy, Drexel University Counseling Center has a Case Manager, Randy Hoffman, MSW, LCSW, who would be willing to help with referrals and with navigating insurance to find a provider. You can connect with her via emailing the counseling center at counsel@drexel.edu.

Additional Resources:

  • 7 Cups is an online service that connects its users with caring listeners who help provide emotional support for non-crisis issues, along with other functions such as guides on maintaining mental wellness
  • Coping With COVID-19 is an online resource center for Drexel students that provides tools for improving mental health and managing the unique toll COVID-19 can take
  • Pre-recorded workshops are available for your learning with topics such as "Anxiety Toolkit," "Getting Unstuck: Depression Management," "Self Compassion" and more
  • SupportLinc is a 24/7 confidential online service providing counseling support, financial advice, guidance, and resources for graduate students and their families

Classroom Technology Has Been Upgraded to Support HyFlex

Classroom technology has been upgraded to provide the best possible HyFlex experience for students and faculty in the event that a student needs to remotely participate in a live face-to-face course. Technology upgrades and simulations were performed to ensure that remote students will still be able to interact with fellow students and faculty.

Please note that your academic advisor remains your best resource for guidance on course scheduling. If you know you cannot participate in a face-to-face course, avoid registering for courses in that format whenever possible. These are denoted on the Term Master Schedule with an instructional method of “Face to Face.”
