June 18, 2020

Dear Maryville Students and Families,

I trust that you are safe and healthy as we deal with the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. My thoughts are with you as we move into summer and prepare for the fall. I am very proud of our community of students, faculty and staff who display such resilience and creativity during these unprecedented times.

Over the past several weeks, many employees have worked tirelessly on a plan for your return to campus and I’m pleased to announce that Maryville is planning for an on-campus return this fall. As always, our plan is governed by the guidelines and rules of local health officials and we will continue to monitor those issues as they evolve.

To help lessen the likelihood of COVID-19 transmission at Maryville and to insure a maximum amount of safety, our fall plan will include a variety of social distancing policies and procedures that all our students, faculty and staff will follow. These guidelines will impact everyone but they will provide the best opportunity for an on campus educational and social experience.

There are a great many details around this plan and we are here to answer all of your questions so that you have a complete picture of how your campus experience will function. All of this information will be provided on maryville.edu/SaintStrong in the next several weeks and we have a group of staff ready to answer your questions. In this letter, I’d like to highlight a few important changes:

Academics:

We are moving to a flexible, hybrid academic model. In this model, many courses will have “mixed attendance,” that is, during any one class session some students will be in the classroom while others participate remotely. An example might be if you have a T/Th class on campus, you’ll attend one of those days in-person and one day virtually. Your health and safety are of utmost importance so if you feel sick or don’t feel comfortable on a given day, you will always be able to attend class virtually. Further details will be released soon.

A variety of options for lab and clinical based courses are being explored to ensure that opportunities for hands-on skills are provided. Your professors or program director will communicate attendance schedules and options when classes begin.

On-campus instruction will begin on schedule, August 24 and conclude on November 20, prior to the Thanksgiving Holiday. Students will finish the final two weeks of the semester through our remote learning platforms only, including final exams, in order to lessen the likelihood of COVID-19 transmission at Maryville.

Athletics and Recreation

At this time, we are planning for competition for all of our fall sports both scholarship and club sports. Team activities will follow social distancing guidelines and other protocols to limit the chances of infection. The Athletics and Recreation Department will communicate policies and guidelines.

Housing

We are reducing the number of students living in residential facilities by converting Saints Hall to single occupancy rooms and offering a limited number of doubles in Potter Hall. We are reserving specific buildings, such as Mouton Hall, Cove House and Ranch House, for students to quarantine if necessary. The apartments will continue with its usual occupancy.

Spreading out occupancy will reduce on campus housing availability; however, Maryville will offer supplemental housing at three local hotels, the Marriott West and the Drury in Chesterfield. Single rooms available at the hotels to accommodate students who are seeking a residential housing experience. At each hotel, rooms utilized for Maryville residential students will be grouped together and staffed by a Resident Assistant. Residential Life will contact all residential students in the next several days to discuss their individual housing arrangement.

Because we will be transitioning to our remote learning platform after the Thanksgiving break, residential students will move out no later than Sunday, November 22, 2020 and will not be permitted to return until Saturday, January 9, 2021 for the spring semester.

Please note: Billing statements for all students will be sent the week of June 29, 2020.

Health and Safety

Maryville holds the health and safety of its students as our top priority. In the coming weeks, students will be provided with information on new health and safety policies and expectations for all community members returning to campus. While we recognize that these new health and safety policies will alter the student experience in some ways, maintaining the health and safety of our campus community is a shared responsibility of all members of the university community. Also look for more details on expanded services available through the Health Center and Counseling Center in the coming weeks. Maryville will continue to monitor the orders and guidance from public health officials and agencies and will update our health and safety policies and procedures as public health guidance evolves.

SaintStrong

As we come back together as a community this fall, I want to formalize the theme that many students, faculty and staff have been using throughout the past few months. SaintStrong is a reminder that to keep ourselves and our community safe, we must all adopt and implement new protocols and practices. Maryville holds as paramount the health, safety and welfare of every member of our community. Having said that, none of us can guarantee what shape COVID-19 will take, and none of us – including Maryville University – can guarantee an environment free of communicable disease, including COVID-19. This is simply not feasible. It would be disingenuous to suggest otherwise, and there is inherent risk that cannot be avoided by returning to campus.

We are in unprecedented times, and safety in the COVID-19 environment is a shared obligation. Every member of our community must do their part. We expect anyone who sets foot on the Maryville campus will appreciate and honor this obligation and comply with all social distancing policies and procedures. Our SaintStrong website will be a resource where you can find the most up-to-date information about Maryville’s operating approach as we continue to navigate the pandemic. You will find policies regarding on-campus interactions as well as more details about changes to academics, housing, dining, health and wellness, facilities, athletics, and more.

Everyone at Maryville is eager for your return to campus, and we have adopted a flexible approach to re-open campus that can be adjusted as conditions change. Please continue to refer to SaintStrong regularly for updates. You may also contact your Life Coach or the Solution Squad to answer questions about our plans for the fall.

Sincerely,

Mark Lombardi, PhD
President

[St. Louis, Mo.] — As part of an ongoing commitment to embrace emerging technologies and new ways of student learning, Maryville University will provide faculty with two weeks of paid professional development, beginning this academic year. The training is organized by Maryville’s Finch Center for Teaching and Learning.

One week of interactive learning sessions will be held in August, and a second week will be held in May. Maryville faculty members from across academic disciplines facilitate the program.

“This is a significant investment in faculty teaching and student learning. Our commitment to innovative pedagogy and facilitating multiple student learning styles is a strategic priority at Maryville University,” said President Mark Lombardi, PhD. “The initial cost of the commitment is $450,000 and it will grow over time.”

Along with a focus on integrating technology in the classroom, sessions will include an emphasis on teaching innovation and creating engaging learning environments. Beginning this year, all incoming traditional freshman will receive a fully loaded, customizable iPad through Maryville’s Digital World program, designed to align students and teachers technologically.

“We are no longer keepers of content in our classrooms,” Lombardi said. “Our role is to facilitate the student’s journey and their application of the knowledge they gain. Our commitment to professional development means our faculty are well prepared to meet the challenge of this shifting role and provide students with exactly what they need in order to achieve academic and ultimately professional success.”

Jesse Kavadlo, PhD, professor of English and director of the Finch Center for Teaching and Learning, developed the professional development program with Laura Ross, assistant director of the Center and adjunct music instructor.

“This is an opportunity for faculty to refresh their teaching strategies, build community and be inspired by each other’s work,” Kavadlo said.

“For educators, these two weeks of development each academic year provide the opportunity for a constant dialogue about teaching strategies, application techniques and what’s new in education,” Ross said.

[St. Louis, Mo.] –Maryville University has established the Office of Diversity & Inclusion to provide strategic leadership in promoting a diverse campus community, create greater access to higher education among underrepresented student groups, and foster meaningful dialogues, programs and partnerships in support of academic excellence and inclusivity.

The restructure of this department, formerly called the Office of Multicultural Programs, reflects a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion goals recently adopted as part of Maryville’s new strategic plan, A New Century of Higher Education: Maryville 2022.

“We are realigning our efforts to help the University pursue more intentional diverse student, faculty and staff recruitment, and strengthen our commitment to providing an inclusive campus environment,” says Nina Caldwell, EdD, vice president for student life and dean of students.

As part of the restructuring, Christie Cruise, PhD, has been named associate dean of students/diversity initiatives and affirmative action officer.  Previously, she served Maryville as assistant dean and director of the Office of Multicultural Programs. She is a former director of the Office for Diversity Initiatives and Intercultural Relations at Gainesville State College (now University of North Georgia) in Gainesville, Ga. Cruise also worked in admissions and served as an academic advisor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She received her PhD from Bowling Green State University, Ohio. She is a mentor for NASPA Undergraduate Program (NUFP), a program for underrepresented students who aspire to be student affairs professionals.

Mullins, Turan

Melissa Griswold, PhD
Dean, Simon School of Business

[St. Louis, Mo.] – In time for Fall 2015 enrollment, Maryville University’s John E. Simon School of Business has developed new degrees, concentrations and certificate programs to provide students with in-demand skills sought by future employers.

“We continually review and reengineer our programs to ensure students are learning the skills necessary to excel in the current job market,” says Melissa Griswold, PhD, dean of the Simon School of Business. “Each of the new programs has been developed in close consultation with prominent practitioners in the field and corporate partners. Our goal is to meet marketplace needs by educating graduates who have skills relevant in today’s market—not the market of ten years ago.”

As an example, Griswold points to the University’s new Cyber Security major, which has seen tremendous growth as an undergraduate major since being offered in Fall 2014. “This is a perfect example of the Simon School of Business responding quickly to a market demand that only a few years ago was negligible,” she says.

New Master’s Programs

New MBA and Management/Leadership Concentrations

For students who wish to focus their coursework in a particular industry or area of business, Maryville has created new MBA and Management/Leadership concentrations in Cyber Security, Financial Services, Healthcare Management, Human Resources Management, Information Technology, Project Management and Supply Chain Management/Logistics.

New Certificate Programs

For individuals who want to build on their skills in sales, Maryville University has created two, one-year certificate programs—Sales Professional and Sales Management. Other new certificate programs at the graduate level include: Financial Services, Healthcare Management, Human Resources Management, Information Technology, Project Management and Supply Chain Management/Logistics.

“The programs may be of particular interest to professionals seeking additional skills in order to make a career change, or those who want to explore new career opportunities,” says Assistant Professor Jason Williams, EdD, director of the sales certificate program and the Rawlings Sport Business Management program.

“I am very impressed by the approach taken by Maryville University with regards to the Sales Professional and Sales Management certifications,” says Dennis Hummel, president of Maritz Holdings, Inc. “I have said many times that for this profession, sales, to have so little formal college curriculum is truly a miss in the overall effort to serve the business world.” Hummel worked closely with Maryville to create the sales program coursework.

Employers Affirm Value of Maryville Programs

In developing new programs across disciplines, Maryville University faculty members are in constant communication with industry representatives. Programs are created and updated in response to the current and future needs of hiring managers.

For example, the sales certificate programs will prove invaluable to students, but also to their employers, Hummel says.

“This curriculum allows current professionals and those preparing for their sales or sales management careers to get both classroom and hands-on field experience,” he says. “It is sure to offer to the employer of these graduates a much quicker path to results as these certified professionals garner more customers and drive greater market penetration.”

Maryville Meets Needs of Busy Students

Maryville strives to offer flexible, accessible programs for busy students. “As a School of Business, we understand the challenges associated with being employed full time while completing a degree,” Griswold says. “In response to that challenge, we’ve developed flexibility in our delivery of programs to allow our students to design their own educational journey.”

Classes are offered onsite, online and in blended programs so students are able to learn at their own pace and through their preferred educational format.

Maryville University women’s soccer assistant coach Lori Chalupny helped the United States Women’s National Team win the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup title as one of 23 players for the USA. Sunday night at BC Place Stadium in Vancouver, Canada, the St. Louis native was part of a USA team that won its record third World Cup title with a 5-2 victory over Japan in the finals.

Chalupny, who has served as a Saints assistant coach for the past two seasons, played at Nerinx Hall High School in Webster Groves, Mo., and collegiately at the University of North Carolina where she was a three-time All-American. She is playing professionally in the National Women’s Soccer League for the Chicago Red Stars.

The World Cup Championship is the latest honor in Chalupny’s standout playing career. She was a member of the 2002 United States Under-19 World Championship Team and won a gold medal when she played for the USA in the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics and scored a goal in a 4-2 victory over Japan in the semifinals.

[St. Louis, Mo.] — Maryville University has announced the addition of eSports to its growing line-up of club sport programs. In recognition of the popularity of eSports and to provide greater academic access, Maryville will offer scholarship opportunities for eligible students. The program begins this fall.

Known more popularly as competitive online video gaming, the world of online sport is new to Maryville, but not to the program’s first coordinator and coach, Daniel Clerke, an international business student. Clerke is also owner of several successful eSport teams, including Enemy, a professional tier League of Legends team.

Maryville’s club program will field teams in a number of different online games.

“I’m really excited to get this going and bring Maryville to the forefront of collegiate eSports,” Clerke says. “ESports is the biggest thing that nobody knows about. To put it in perspective, the League of Legends World Championship last year was viewed by more people than every sporting event except the Superbowl, and that includes the World Cup.”

Maryville also provides club sport teams in roller hockey, men’s and women’s soccer, women’s volleyball and men’s rugby. For each club sport, the University provides space for competition and limited funding for uniforms and the hiring of officials.

Erin Schreiber, Maryville University Hillel Manager

[St. Louis, Mo.] – Maryville University has announced a new affiliation with Hillel International, the largest Jewish student organization in the world. The creation of a Maryville University Hillel marks the first time more than one Hillel will be serving students in the St. Louis community.

The announcement follows concerted efforts by Maryville in recent years to create a more welcoming environment for Jewish students, through expanded programming and a growing presence in the Jewish community at large. A Jewish Student Union (JSU) was formed in 2010, and the Kranzberg Family Foundation has provided funding over the past five years to hire and retain a Jewish programming facilitator to engage young adults. Since 2012, this position has been held by Erin Schreiber, a former assistant director of St. Louis Hillel at Washington University. Schreiber will be the new Hillel manager.

Numerous faculty and staff members worked toward helping the Maryville JSU become the newest Hillel, a distinction the University hopes will provide added assurance to families that students will find a Jewish “home” on campus. Maryville’s recent ranking as a national university makes it even more imperative that Jewish students from out-of-state have a place to celebrate traditions away from their families.

Maryville sophomore Arin Simon, an education student from Denver, Colo., has actively participated in the Jewish Student Union and looks forward to having a Hillel on campus.  “I can’t wait to have a place at Maryville that I can go to just be Jewish, and be with others who are as well,” she said.

The University’s initial inquiry to the Hillel International organization was warmly received. “They felt that we were already ahead of many other universities in creating a model of Jewish student life that others could follow,” Schreiber said.

“We are very excited to be expanding Hillel’s work on campus to Maryville University,” said Hal Ossman, Hillel International’s chief campus officer. “The university leadership showed great commitment to building a strong Jewish community at Maryville and we believe the new Maryville University Hillel will continue a great tradition of Jewish student life in St. Louis.”

To become an affiliate, Maryville underwent a rigorous review process—including submission of a formal application, and an interview that delved into the University’s cultural climate and rationale for becoming a Hillel. The affiliation agreement was approved through a vote by the Hillel International Board of Directors.

Tom Eschen, Maryville’s vice president for institutional advancement, feels the new Maryville Hillel supports the goal of diversity and inclusion, which is a central theme of the University’s strategic plan.

“The new Maryville Hillel is just the latest in a series of programs and initiatives designed to serve Maryville’s growing Jewish community of students, faculty, staff and alumni. We want Maryville to be a real first choice option for Jewish students of all ages, based on our academic programs and also our culture,” Eschen said. “Students of all religious backgrounds thrive at Maryville and diversity is a key goal. It’s what the real world looks like and it reflects the long-standing values of Maryville University. ”

Schreiber foresees a smooth transition for St. Louis’s newest Hillel, which will open when the fall semester begins in August. “We’re proud to become the Maryville University Hillel and share our celebrations, warmth and sense of community with an expanded network from across the country and the world,” she said.
