Gogebic Copper Country Campus Suspends Face-to-Face Instruction

From Gogebic Community College:

The Gogebic Community College Copper Country Center in Houghton, in cooperation with the Western Upper Peninsula Health Department, is taking actions of limiting access to facilities and virtualizing classrooms and work environments.

“All GCC classes held at the Copper Country Center in Houghton will move to distance delivery beginning on Monday, September 28 through October 9, 2020 with the exception of several lab courses,” said Dr. George McNulty, GCC President.

Classes will resume in person on Monday, October 12, 2020.

“While challenging, we are still able to maintain our primary mission. We appreciate your patience at this time.”    

Faculty members will be reaching out to all students. Any individuals needing assistance or equipment are encouraged to contact faculty or staff remotely, but the college offices will remain open for business in Houghton Monday – Friday from 8am – 4:30 pm EST. The faculty and staff directory is located on the home page under the About tab on the GCC website or at the following link: https://www.gogebic.edu/AboutUs/directory.html.

Students in the Copper Country can access the internet in the back-parking lot behind the Copper Country Center. The Wi-Fi service extends to approximately the 12th row out (depth) of the parking lot. 

Students are also encouraged to check their GCC email and the home page of the website for the most up-to-date information: gogebic.edu.  

“We continue to work closely with the health department to do what we can to mitigate spread,” said Dr. McNulty.        

For any questions, please call or email the Copper Country Center at: (906) 483-0070 or coppercountry@gogebic.edu. The Gogebic Community College campus in Ironwood, remains open for classes and services.
