Ronan Lahiff started this petition to Franciscan University and

Due to the COVID-19 virus, students were sent home both from main campus and from the Austrian campus.  This has caused a hard transition of going from classes in person to not only having to take all online classes, but have the extra stress of the worldwide pandemic.  Due to this students are having to learn to go to school in a completely different environment while still managing a heavy workload. In addition, many of the professors in our school have very little to no experience managing courses online. Furthermore, the grading process will be severely limited and will place undue stress onto students who have much less control over their ability to properly prepare for exams. Due to this, we believe that the appropriate action that the university should take is to allow students to choose if their classes will be graded on a pass/fail scale or on the normal grading scale.  We hope that the University enacts this change to the benefit of the entire student community.
