LIBERAL, Kan. (March 24, 2020) — Seward County Community College remains open for education and business. It’s just a matter of finding the right entry point.
SCCC Vice President of Finance and Operations Dennis Sander announced the establishment of designated door access during the coronavirus crisis.
“The intent of reducing the number of unlocked entrance doors is simply to direct public access to fewer locations, and have fewer handles touched,” said Sander. He noted that Director of Facilities Roger Scheib has deployed his crews to regularly clean and disinfect public-use areas with antiviral cleaning supplies.
With dozens of building entrances across campus, the College hopes to ensure all doors in use carry minimum risk for contagion.
Sander released maps for the multi-entrance buildings on campus, indicating open and locked doors during hours of normal operation.
Buildings that regularly have only one entrance are not affected.
Principal access to the Industrial Tech/Business & Industry building is the main front entrance facing west, on the southwest corner of the building. Other doors at the tech buildings will be opened by the instructors when labs are in session.
“We are committed to finding the best balance between our responsibility for public health concerns, and access for our students and stakeholders,” said SCCC President Dr. Ken Trzaska. “A safe and healthy campus is one of our key directions, and this aligns with that goal.”
SCCC continues to operate during its normal business hours of 7:45 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., Monday through Friday. Some offices require an appointment in advance and suggest visitors call ahead of time.
The college’s main number is 417-1000; a complete directory of team members may be viewed at sccc.edu > faculty & staff > faculty & staff directory.
