President Charlier’s letter to students following Stay at Home order

Dear CLC Students,

As you may have seen in this evening’s message from our Chancellor, Gov. Tim Walz has issued a “Stay at Home” order. In the order, Central Lakes College and all other Minnesota State colleges and universities have been designated as essential services. This means that your courses will resume as planned, and you will continue to have access to support services here at CLC.

What this means for you:

  • Instruction will resume as planned on Monday, March 30, using alternate delivery modes, including online, remote and limited in-person contact with social distancing precautions. Please check both your CLC email and D2L for guidance from your instructors.
  • Essential services will be available by remote access. We will be rolling out a new student-friendly web page to help you connect with our student services remotely. Please visit the CLC website for more information.                                          http://www.clcmn.edu/remoteservices/
  • Students can still access our campuses for services not accessible from home, but campus staffing will be very limited.  For example, open computers will be available on our campuses during regular hours with support staff available only during specific hours. Details are available on the website.
  • This is a challenging time, and many of us are feeling stress and anxiety.
    • Students can seek support services on our campus by contacting CLC Counselor Suzie Karsnia at Suzanne.karsnia@clcmn.edu.
    • In addition, United Healthcare is offering a free emotional support help line for all students through Optum, one of their subsidiary companies. Their 24/7 toll-free helpline number, 866-342-6892, is free of charge and open to any student.

Our top two priorities remain protecting the health and safety of our faculty, staff and students, as well as helping our students to successfully finish the semester. We are here to help you!

Of course, if you have questions or concerns, you are always welcome to reach out at covid19@clcmn.edu.


Dr. Hara Charlier, President of Central Lakes College
