We wanted to take this opportunity to share a few general updates on cooperative education for the summer semester. As mentioned, summer co-op is still planned to be delivered in the usual format, but we are regularly monitoring the situation and adjusting accordingly. Thus, we are currently actively working on different co-op solutions for summer 2020 and we'll be sharing these with all of you in the weeks to come.
The Career Services office is in regular contact with our corporate partners to assess all possibilities for co-op's that have been offered and are due to happen in the summer semester. As we have already communicated, due to COVID-19, many interviews and hiring decisions are on hold at the moment until employers see how the whole situation will unwind.
You can all be assured that we will find a solution that will work for all since our goal is that these extenuating circumstances do not negatively impact your studies at RIT Croatia.
Also, if you've already managed to secure your Coop placement-please reach out to us to share the details. If you are still searching/waiting for the opportunities and you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us anytime.

As we all embrace the new ways of delivering classes, RIT has prepared some useful tips and tricks for you HERE.
RIT has been engaging students in distance learning for almost 40 years and has all tools and knowledge needed to fully transition classes into an online environment. We have been preparing for this step and we are ready.
However, this is a novel situation for all of us, so both our faculty and our students need to work together to make this work! We need your active participation in an online classroom, as well as understanding that we are all operating in a new environment. Hence, we all need to communicate, have patience and be flexible. We are doing our best and are committed to help you finish this semester successfully!
How will RIT Croatia communicate with its students?
What you need to know before classes resume (March 23)
General information about the reminder of the Spring semester - how will it work?
What you need to know about online format of classes?
For many activities MyCourses can be used, so that will frequently be the new online environment.
We know that at this point in time there are many open questions. As we work through them, we’ll be sharing any updates promptly. Hence, please continue to regularly check emails as this will be our primary means of communication.
Stay safe and healthy.

Dear RIT Croatia community members,
Following thoughtful discussion and consultation with the Rochester campus, we have decided to take the following steps to mitigate the potential spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) on our campuses. We also want to mention that we do not have any confirmed cases of COVID-19 at RIT Croatia at this time.
Our Dubrovnik and Zagreb campuses will continue to remain open, and many of our operations and activities will continue, although there will be adjustments. In addition to ensuring your health and safety, and that of our faculty and staff, we are also committed to ensuring that you are able to fulfill your academic requirements. As a result, the following will occur on the RIT Croatia campuses:
While completing classes students may choose to reside at their permanent place of residence or their Dubrovnik/Zagreb temporary residence. Social distancing and enhanced preventative public health and hygiene measures are strongly encouraged. We urge all RIT Croatia community members to make the choice that is best for their own personal situation.
Understandably there remain many unanswered questions given
this rapidly changing situation. We assure all that we will work to provide our
community members with additional information as soon as it is available, and
will make decisions based on the best and most current public health guidance
available. We also encourage all to stay knowledgeable of the evolving
conditions in your areas. Also, please continue to regularly check emails as
this will be our primary means of communication.
Stay safe and healthy, and let us know if you have any questions.Stay safe and healthy, and should you have questions or concerns, please CONTACT US.

We are closely monitoring the situation regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) both in Croatia and globally. Locally, we are working with health officials to ensure we are aware of changing conditions and responding effectively. We are also working closely with the Rochester campus to ensure we are in line with existing measures imposed across our global campuses.
As always, we make students and their well-being our
priority; hence, we are keeping them informed about the current situation and
any measures taken. At our Zagreb and Dubrovnik campuses we have ensured to
supply our students with available hand sanitizers as well as shared best
practices on how to decrease the chances of getting sick. This includes:
regularly washing hands, avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth as well as
seeking medical care if they are short of breath, have a fever for more than
three days, or can’t keep fluids down.
Classes are running as per our regular schedule and faculty and staff are readily available. Should you have questions or concerns, please contact Ivona Labaš, our Director of Strategic Development, ITS & Facilities at 020-433-000 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org
