As a large University with more than 14000 students in campus our worries were immeasurable. The first step was to create quick awareness amongst faculty members and students.
We wrote to them personal messages to inform and educate about Corona virus and gave historical facts to them. The same was put up on our website and also on all social media pages of REVA. All around the campus, boards were put up so that students and visitors to campus were educated about the preventive measures.
Our hostels were fumigated regularly and every mentor-teacher personally supervised the cleaning of each and every room in the hostel. We placed sanitizers at every nook and corner of the campus.
Our wash rooms had enough display boards for the same. Messages were sent to the students through ERP regularly. All our buses, classrooms and labs were also fumigated every alternate day. Thermal temperature scanners are being used at the main entrance so as to screen every visitor into the campus. During the lockdown period, teaching-learning has been taking place regularly as per our schedule through online mode. We also adopted the online mode to conduct seminars, conferences and other planned events.
REVA University will resume classes as per the Academic Calendar of the University via remote teaching. REVA University will comply with the nation wide decision taken with regard to ‘stay @ home’ for students inorder to stop the spread of COVID-19. We will open and welcome students to campus as soon as the Government gives us directives to do so. REVA team will do everything in our capacity to ensure the safe learning of our students during these days.
