Salve Regina launches Virtual Salve website to coordinate digital learning
As Salve Regina’s students and faculty commence with remote learning on Monday, March 30, the University has officially launched Virtual Salve, a gathering place where the University community will find all the resources that support and celebrate its ongoing work in academics, student engagement and spiritual reflection in a digital space.
The site features information for students, faculty and prospective students, along with campus updates, official communications, spiritual resources and community support opportunities. In announcing the launch of Virtual Salve to its learning community, the University also circulated a personal video message for all its students, “Salve’s Got This!”
“The profound impact that changes brought about by the coronavirus pandemic has had on the university community is impossible to fully comprehend,” said Dr. Kelli J. Armstrong, president of Salve Regina. “But Salve is a strong community. We are a community of close and caring people. Our ability to adapt and to persevere defines what it means when we put Mercy into action.”
As the university adapts to its new virtual environment, Armstrong offered a personal message to students, one shared by many faculty and staff in the “Salve’s Got This!” video. “Know that many people are thinking about you and are here to support you academically, emotionally and spiritually,” Armstrong said. “You are missed on campus, but we are here for you.”
Salve Regina is also going to be offering a plethora of new content on SALVEtoday to keep the University community engaged during this time, so please continue to check SALVEtoday each day for encouraging, motivating and uplifting content during this time of remote living and learning. #salvesgotthis
