Silliman University will officially hold face-to-face classes in selected courses at the college level effective May 2, after two years of using the online distance learning modality since the pandemic.

SU President Dr. Betty Cernol-McCann announced this during a virtual University Convocation on March 23.

She clarified, however, “there are courses that will continue to be delivered online; some are to be taught in a hybrid learning modality; others are to be primarily done in-person like our laboratory courses, practicum classes, and internship programs.”

Dr. McCann added that the University is currently “retrofitting classrooms, and preparing faculty and staff to transition into in-person and hybrid learning effective May 2022.”

During the pandemic, “the University has been closely monitoring shifts in health alert levels- 1, 2, 3 or 4 – as each level of alert means adjustments in the way we carry out our teaching, research, community service, and church activities,” she explained.

Since last school year, Silliman had instituted limited face-to-face instruction for the School of Medicine, and in the Allied Health programs such as Nursing, Physical Therapy, and Medical Technology.

The University made the move after instituting and observing closely health safety guidelines mandated by the Department of Health and the Commission on Higher Education. (Jameela Antoniette Mendoza)
