CULLOWHEE, N.C. (WLOS) — In 10 days, classes are set to resume at Western Carolina University. Some will be in person, some online.
Some faculty are expressing concerns about teaching in-person during the COVID-19 pandemic, and they’re getting ready to vote on a resolution to be delivered to the administration.
The resolution calls for online instruction instead of in-class instruction, citing concern for the safety of students, faculty, staff and the community at large.
“My concern, right now, is being driven more by other faculty and that they are not comfortable in that face-to-face environment,” WCU Faculty Chair Kadie Otto said.
