Re:  Class Postponement:  April 12 through April 30, 2020

As we learned today from Governor Whitmer, the Stay at Home order is in effect until April 30, 2020.  Thus, we will be postponing all classes through April 30, 2020, unless another extension is ordered.

These postponements are a significant scheduling challenge, and we are aware that once we have a schedule, you will then need to communicate the new schedule with others.  We are all in this together.

For students in Anatomy III, you could start on your directed studies; you already know the chapters in your workbook to complete (they are listed on your Anatomy I and Anatomy II Directed Studies sheets).

All Natural Health students could be working on their research papers.  If you haven’t gotten your topic approved yet, please send a small paragraph describing your paper topic to the Institute for approval.

All Therapeutic Bodywork Practitioners, you can be doing your online homework, and don’t forget that the Anatomy workbook is something on which should be working.  Read your online assignment letter for all the details.

Please use this time to complete what work you can, to continue your learning, and to maintain some study habits, because when we are able to continue classes, the pace will pick up once again.

While we work on how we can best get everyone through their respective program, either by face-to-face or possibly electronic modalities, in a timely fashion,  please keep in mind that we will be taking into account testing and graduation dates, meeting state mandates for required hours, and still offering the quality of instruction you are used to receiving from the Institute.

Students whose names appear on the class rosters that have been impacted by the postponements in March and April, will receive individual class emails regarding new scheduled dates and modalities.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at:  contact@naturopathicinstitute.org.
