STRATFORD UNIVERSITY'S RESPONSE TO COVID-19

CORONAVIRUS MARCH 30, 2020 UPDATE

Stratford University has successfully completed two weeks in the remote learning environment. We want to thank the Stratford Community for your support as the University quickly implemented operational and logistics changes in response to the immediate challenges of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The first phase of the response to the pandemic was to focus on the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff and doing our part to “flatten the curve” of possible exposure and transmission.  Stratford University made the decision to temporarily suspend ground campus activities including the delivery of all course curricula at all campuses: Alexandria, Falls Church and Woodbridge, Virginia and Baltimore, Maryland.  The University moved all ground courses to an online modality using the institutions approved Learning Management System platform, Moodle, in conjunction with the Zoom video conferencing software.

Stratford University is continuously monitoring the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. The University has taken every precaution to ensure the health and well-being of our students, faculty, staff, and the community we live and work. Due to the most recent directives from the Federal Government and the Governors of Maryland and Virginia, and to ensure Stratford University provides a safe work and learning environment, the University has adjusted our timeline for when we tentatively plan to re-open our ground campuses and move distance education learning back to the classroom.

All Stratford University campuses will remain closed until Tuesday, May 26, 2020.  Employee and student communication was emailed on March 30, 2020 with additional information pertaining to the extended distance education delivery timeline. Although ground campuses are closed, all business operations will be conducted via telework and virtual work environments.

We want to be clear. Stratford University remains open and fully available to serve our current students, welcome new students, and provide support to all employees. 

We are committed to ensuring minimal disruption to our students’ educational journey and have implemented the following measures: 

  • Campus support departments will be available through live virtual Zoom/Chat sessions. Students, please log into Moodle for the virtual/chat room information.
  • All faculty and staff are teleworking but remain available to support students. Students contact your faculty through Moodle, email, or phone provided by your faculty. All other support services contact:

Please continue to monitor your text messages and student e-mail on a regular basis for additional updates and communication.

Please be assured; no COVID-19 has been identified on our campuses – we are merely taking precautionary measures. Stratford University is monitoring the guidance of federal, state, local government, and public health authorities, so we can quickly adjust University operations to comply with any new COVID-19 mandates appropriately.
