               Bluefield State College has established a task force to permit the College to resume operations safely and effectively prior to the start of Fall Semester classes in August.  BSC President Robin Capehart announced the creation of the “B-State’s Back” Task Force today (April 29). 

               The task force, chaired by Dr. Ted Lewis (BSC Provost) and vice chaired by Dr. Deirdre Guyton (BSC Director of Alumni Affairs), will hold its initial meeting during the week of May 4, and will present its report to President Capehart on June 15.

               “We fully intend for our campus to be open in the Fall 2020,” President Capehart said.  “We know that the coronavirus pandemic has created a world of uncertainty and caution.  But we have to plan now for the manner in which we’ll respond to a ‘new normal’ and assure the health and safety of our students, staff, and faculty.”

               The BSC President discussed the establishment of the “B-State’s Back” Task Force during his April 28, 2020 update to the campus, which can be viewed online at:  https://bluefieldstate.edu/homepage/covid-19
