Graduation Events Postponed

Calvary University looks forward to our Graduation weekend with much anticipation every year. It is a time to fellowship with each of our students and celebrate what God has accomplished through their lives in their studies here at Calvary. 

In light of recent guidance from the CDC and government authorities in limiting the size of gatherings, we have determined that it is most appropriate to postpone our Graduation events until June 26 – 27. 

COVID-19 and the public response has created a very fluid situation, and we want to exercise the utmost caution and consideration for everyone.

Let’s all be prayerful and vigilant as we navigate these challenging times together, with confidence that God is truly in control.

Feast & Fund Rescheduled for August 7; Online Auction Starts Soon

Message from the President on the Postponement of Feast and Fund:

Dear Calvary Family,

While we were very much looking forward to spending an evening with you in fellowship and in support of what God is doing through Calvary, our desire is to lead as good neighbors and support all possible efforts at minimizing the spread of COVID-19. In light of recent guidance from the CDC and government authorities we have determined that it is most considerate of you and our communities to postpone the Feast and Fund Auction event until August 7.

We apologize for the short notice, as COVID-19 and the public response have created a very fluid situation, and we want to exercise the utmost caution and consideration for all of you. Thank you so much for your willingness to participate and for tolerating this unplanned (humanly speaking) deferment of fun and fellowship. We look forward to being able to enjoy the Feast and Fund event with you on August 7, God willing. Registrations and auction items will remain active for the new date.

This event was originally scheduled in part to meet financial needs which are especially great during the summer, and postponing the auction has significant financial implications for Calvary. We ask that you prayerfully consider joining the Cohort or making an initial donation to help support the important work being done through Calvary University. Thank you so much for your friendship, and for your willingness to encourage and support. Let’s all be prayerful and vigilant as we navigate these challenges together, with confidence in Him.

Update From the President’s Office on CU’s Current Response to COVID-19

Update From the President’s Office on CU’s Current Response to COVID-19

Dear Calvary Warriors,

Our crisis management team and our university leadership  have been working together proactively during these past weeks to ensure sound strategies for adapting to the very fluid COVID-19 situation, seeking first and foremost your health and safety. As we continue to work hard to do our part to stop the spread of this health threat, here are some steps CU is taking:

(1) We are following CDC guidance and cancelling or postponing large gatherings and events. We have postponed Feast and Fund (rescheduled for August 7), we are postponing Commencement (rescheduled for June 27), and Chapel/Assemblies will be delivered and live-streamed, but will not be required for in-person attendance.

(2) CU will also limit staff and faculty gatherings as much as is possible. For example, this week’s War Council (all employee meeting) will be postponed until the next regularly scheduled date. Updates that would normally be given in this meeting will be communicated via email in the next few days.

(3) Beginning after Spring Break and continuing through the end of the semester (including Cycle 6), all classes will be delivered online only. As Calvary has a robust blended model, and all of our students and faculty are already engaging in CU’s distance learning model, this will be a simple switch for most of you.

(4) Calvary will not be closing the dorms during the semester unless instructed to do so by a public health official. We are working on ways to ensure our students continue to receive normal services even as we try to practice very important social distancing.

(5) Most operations and services will continue to function, but may be accomplished in virtual environments rather than in person.There may be some services suspended, and if so we will communicate with you as these things become apparent.

(6) As is typical, Calvary’s primary mode of communication with our students, staff, and faculty will be through CU’s official email system, and we urge you to check your email accounts frequently, as this is a readily changing situation.

Please be prayerful, remembering that even in the midst of adversity, we find our strength and contentment in Him, rather than in our circumstances (Php 4:10-14).
