FREDONIA, N.Y. (WKBW) — Remote and online learning presents its own unique challenges. Colleges, their students, and their staff across the country as they make the transition due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But

"Students are heading home and may not have the technology, the computer, or the software, or some other kind of equipment that they might need for a lab," Fredonia College Foundation director Betty Gossett said.

That's where the faculty stepped in. They created a student emergency relief fund for Fredonia students who are financially unequipped for the transition to remote classes.

"It's just a quick application that students can fill out if they have a need," Gossett said." "We have a team on campus who is looking at those requests regularly."

Even when they're kept out of their classrooms, these instructors have found a way to make a profound impact on their students. You can donate to the student emergency relief fund here.
