Penn College President Davie Jane Gilmour issued the following message to students and employees Thursday morning:

Yesterday, Gov. Wolf extended his “stay at home” order to apply statewide until April 30. The order specifically notes that “travel to or from educational institutions for purposes of receiving materials for distance learning, for receiving meals, and any other related services” is permitted. Fortunately, our current plan, which we sent you on Tuesday morning – to resume required clinicals and labs on May 4 with appropriate social distancing measures in place, and to otherwise complete all courses online – complies with the order.

Your health and safety, and that of your families, is of the highest importance to me. I hope that you will take the time to view this short video message at your convenience. (But not during class!)

Thank you again for the way you have pulled together in support of one another, and in support of our shared mission to develop the workforce leaders of tomorrow.

Together, we will get through this,
