Hybrid learning to continue at Joliet Junior College in Spring 21

JOLIET Joliet Junior College announced Friday afternoon plans to continue its current hybrid model delivery course of classes in Spring 2021, unless changes to the pandemic warrant a change.

“Our students have faced unprecedented stress, frustration, and fear. But they haven’t given up on their education, and neither have we,” said JJC President Dr. Judy Mitchell. “We were proactive in our announcement for the fall semester. We were one of the first institutions to share our plans. In this case, we are using the same philosophy: our decision-making process has been thoughtful but swift to give our students time to solidify their plans, and time for us to ensure they get the support they need to persist. This includes access to technology like laptops, financial support, and health and wellness support.”

Under the current plan, lecture courses at the school are held online, with labs meeting in person in accordance with state and federal safety guidelines. 

JJC also said this week it will begin keeping fewer staff on campus as part of modified existing operations for the fall in wake of new state mitigation tactics. In addition, remote only services will be available on Fridays and Saturdays, as campus facilities will be closed to the general public.
