COVID-19 Update: Dean Tandy answers common questions from students

April 9, 2020

Dear Lee Business School Students,

We know this is a very challenging time and we are reaching out to remind you that you are not alone. There is no question we are all adjusting to remote learning while social distancing from home. We’ve heard some of your concerns, and we want you to know the actions that UNLV and the Lee Business School have taken:

“I’m worried that this semester will hurt my GPA” – The university will be offering an option for Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory grades this semester. You’ll first get a grade from your instructor at the end of the semester, and then you’ll have the option to apply for the S/U grade instead (everyone who applies will get it). An "S" will satisfy the requirements for the class but won’t affect your GPA. Look for more information to come about the process.

March 20, 2020

In these unsure times we want our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the community to know we are all in this together. We are committed to providing the best possible academic experience to our students during this challenging period. Along with the rest of the university, all classes through the Lee Business School will transition to remote teaching on March 23, I know this will be a time of learning for all of us but I am confident we can do this successfully with patience and understanding for each other. Students will receive communication from their professors by Monday, March 23 if they haven’t already.

As we move forward, the Lee Business School will follow the lead of the university, NSHE, and our local government. Our highest priority is the safety and health of our university community. I encourage you to check for information pertaining to university operations. We will also be sharing updates on this page, specific to services available to Lee Business School students as they become available. As directed by the university, all events scheduled through Sunday, April 12 will be canceled or postponed. We hope to have more information about rescheduling events in the coming days.

Despite the circumstances, I have been amazed by the positive and encouraging attitudes of our faculty and staff. We don’t know what the next days and weeks will bring, but we will work together as a team for the benefit of our students.

Interim Dean, Lee Business School
