JAMESTOWN – This week, leaders with the State University of New York discussed the education system’s plan to return to in-person instruction this fall during a visit to SUNY JCC in Jamestown.
SUNY Chancellor Jim Malatras met with Jamestown Community College President Daniel DeMarte and North County Center and Career Advantage director Beth Starks at the college’s Jamestown Campus.
Malatras says he wants as many students to be vaccinated as possible.
“We need to vaccinate everyone that we can in the system now because that ultimately allows us to go back to the more normal experience, so we are in the middle of our thirty-day vaccination challenge, we are big with the social awareness campaign,” said Malatras.
While there is no vaccine mandate, Chancellor Malatras wants as many faculty and students as possible to be vaccinated so everyone will be safe and new semester, and in order to keep in-person education.
