Message from our President
Greetings to our NICC students, colleagues, partners, and communities,
COVID-19 has greatly disrupted our personal and professional lives. Our working, teaching and learning environment is no longer the same. I am grateful for your adjusting to the new environment, innovating thinking and practice and flexibility during this challenging time.
Be assured that providing a safe environment is our top priority. We continue to access the latest guidelines to update our safety protocols and procedures to support the delivery of programs and services.
We may not be able to control the virus, but we can all do our part in protecting ourselves and others from its spread through wearing face coverings, observing social distancing and practicing the recommended personal hygiene.
We must be patient and cautious in our reopening plan. My philosophy is to open up slowly and methodically in an effort to avoid taking steps backwards. I ask that you continue to be flexible and gracious as we slowly move forward. Minimizing disruptions will lessen the stress for all of us. Let us continue to extend grace and compassion and help each other through this trying time. Be kind to ourselves as we would to others. Together, we’ll emerge more resilient physically and emotionally.
With gratitude and well wishes,
Liang Chee Wee, Ph.D.
