Official Statement

Academic Measures

New academic measures have been put in place following several strategic meetings to alleviate some of the pressures you are experiencing in these unconventional times:

 

 

Campus Measures

 

Campus Operation

Throughout these times, all of NDU's campuses are being regularly disinfected and special measures have been taken concerning faculty, staff, and residing students remaining on campus. All campus visitors will have their temperatures checked before going about their duties.

All faculty are not required to come to campus physically and, if they do come, are requested to only make use of their offices, not classrooms. 

To best support our students and process their urgent needs, certain offices namely, Admissions, Registrar, Business Office, Library and Office of IT remain partially operational: Working hours across all three campuses will be on Mondays and Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. with no need for punching in and out.

Other offices will be operational from home upon the discretion of the relevant Vice President / Campus Director / Director / Deans.

Library
Inter-library loans (ILL) are still feasible through email requests while print requests will be available during the partial operating hours mentioned above.

Student Dorms
Students living in dorms are asked to stay with their families should that be possible for the duration of this period.

Many measures have been taken for those students who will remain on campus: 
  • The dorm facility is being disinfected regularly to make sure all residents and staff are secure, and hand sanitizing stations are placed on each entrance.
  • All residents (who were not able to join their families) are to stay at the dorms' premises and can only leave the premises if they plan to vacate for good.
  • All common kitchens in the floors will be closed, and only the reception kitchen will be operational for students.
  • Each resident’s temperature will be tested twice per day. Should there be a registered fever, then he/she will visit the NDU Physician and will be isolated until the temperature drops.
  • Deliveries are allowed with no interaction between the delivery person and the resident whereby the food will be dropped off at the security point and then picked up by the resident after being disinfected.
  • No visitors are allowed to enter the dorms' premises.
  • Fridges have been doubled in each room to give more storage space for students.
  • All students passing by the dorms to only pick up their urgent belongings have to inform the administration ahead of time. Upon arrival, these students will get their temperature tested and will have to use the hand sanitizer before entering.
  • To reduce unnecessary interpersonal contact as much as possible, the cleaning staff will not attend to the dorm rooms starting Monday, and the students will be asked to clean their rooms and bathrooms with the cleaning products that will be readily available for them.

Trips

The Office of Human Resources should be informed of any contact with potentially infected people. As for travel plans, professional trips will not be allowed while the destination of recent or upcoming personal trips needs to be shared with the Office of Human Resources to make sure all the necessary precautions are taken. 

 

I would like to thank everyone, faculty, staff, and students for the ongoing support and understanding during these difficult times. Despite the circumstances, I encourage you to make good use of this time with your family and loved ones. We are never alone; the Lord's hand is guiding our history, and through His saving grace, we shall prevail.

 

God Bless you all.
