Remote Instruction DR. PAUL WEAVER '96 & '97 – ACADEMIC DEAN
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Word of Life Bible Institute students transitioned to a remote learning environment after their spring break. Our resident professors utilized a variety of methods to engage our students in unique ways, including but not limited to: recording and uploading new class videos, hosting weekly Q & A Zoom conference calls, and employing online posts and reply threads. We are thankful that we had the leading Learning Management System (Canvas) in place to make all this possible. We also adapted our guest lecturer courses for a unique online experience. Overall, we are very pleased with how effectively students were able to adapt to this unexpected turn of events and finish their semester strong. Our academic team worked exceptionally hard to serve our students during this season as well as assist several of our international teaching sites to educate and equip their students around the world using Canvas as well. Canvas is also being employed this summer as students fulfill their ministry practicum. We have a team assembled who are ready to approve ministry proposals, answer questions, grade submissions, and assist our students in every way possible. This is truly a united effort across multiple departments (Academics, Ministries, and Student Life).

Dorm Remodels – Work is happening everywhere this summer on the New York campus. Currently, Chile, Turkey, Colombia, Europe, and England are receiving major remodels. Each dorm will have new siding, windows, bathrooms, laundry rooms, lounges, bedrooms and entrances fully remodeled. Check out some of the pictures to the right. We are thrilled to introduce the brand-new Huskies Health and Athletic Center. This facility will be home to our health and security office, providing a lounge, exam rooms, laundry room, offices, and isolation rooms. This building will also include a state-of-the-art gym with 3 courts, a running track, exercise room, and weight equipment room. There is also a concession stand, locker rooms, athletic trainers' room, equipment rooms and public restrooms. Included is a large multi-purpose room in the building for meetings and presentations. The building is 51,000 square feet and overlooks the soccer field. The grand opening is scheduled for October 10, 2020. Huskies Soccer Complex – The soccer field on the main campus will now be a soccer complex. This will include a tiered grandstand section built into the hill by the new Huskies Health and Athletic Center, as well as all new lighting rated for collegiate games, a new scoreboard location, and fencing. The entire complex will be made of Field Turf grass. This will allow for year- round use for camps and the Bible Institute. We would love to see you at Homecoming on October 10, 2020, for our first game in this new complex. Walkways and Entrance – As we have developed the property, we knew we needed to rework our roads, walkways, and entrance to better serve our students and guests. Check out some of the work taking place on the facility!
