COVID-19 Coping Resources & Administrative Support

Due to ongoing concerns about the health and safety of our students, staff and faculty amidst COVID-19, APHD has moved all current courses online for the remainder of the winter term. In addition, all staff have the option of telecommuting and will be answering emails and telephone calls from off-site. You can find more information on how to connect with our staff on the APHD Administrative Support page listed below.

To support our community, we have put together some resources to help you cope and connect amidst COVID-19. You can find a list of these resources on the COVID-19 Coping Resources page listed below.
