Temporary Virtual Services

 As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the College of Humanities and Fine Arts has shuttered the doors on our physical spaces and made the transition to a virtual college.  While this is less than ideal, we want to assure you that in this virtual space, we will approach our work, albeit in different modalities, with care, compassion, dedication to student access, equity, and success, and the same commitment to learning as we have always.  During this time, when so much is uncertain for all of us, I want to encourage us to practice being gracious—to others as well as ourselves—in our teaching, learning, navigation of processes, and interactions with our colleagues.   

This moment in history emphasizes the lessons that we all should keep in mind.  In addition to being gracious, remember to check in with each other as much as you are capable.  This will help to ensure continuity in our community. Also, remember to wash your hands, don’t touch your face, cough and sneeze in your elbow, maintain appropriate distances from others, and, more importantly, look out for and protect those amongst us who are vulnerable and at-risk.  

If you are a current student and have questions about your class, please email your professor directly.  For all other inquiries, please email Emily Amarel at or give us a call at 530-898-5351, where HFA staff is able to answer your call remotely. Note that during the summer months, beginning June 1, 2020 through August 14, 2020, the HFA office will be operating on summer hours along with the rest of the CSU, Chico campus. We will be available from 7:00am to 5:30pm Monday through Thursday. Our office will be closed on Fridays.
