Despite the pandemic, work progressed on the construction of the F. George Shipman Science Center Annex of the Duncan Science Building, shown below, that will include labs for biology and chemistry, research spaces and a state-ofthe-art planetarium/immersion theater. Last fall, Greg Alcorn, founder and CEO of Global Contact Services, LLC (GCS) in Salisbury, agreed to fully fund greenhouse portion of annex at a cost of $30,000. “This generous donation makes it possible for Livingstone College to compete for grants and collaborate with other institutions in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) learning environment,” said President Dr. Jimmy R. Jenkins, Sr. The annex is expected to be completed March 30, 2021.

A Message from the President

As I reflect over the past year, I am reminded of the song, “How I Got Over: My soul looks back and wonder, how I (we) made it over.” By the grace of God, we did. I am still standing. Those of you reading this are still standing. And your alma mater, Livingstone College, is still standing. The global pandemic that paralyzed our nation forced us to close our campus for five months and move to distance learning. The pandemic changed the landscape of higher education and we were catapulted into a new era of campus operations. But we did so sufficiently and expeditiously, thanks to the dynamic development and execution of plans by our Division of Academic Affairs and dedicated faculty and staff members. We reassumed operations at the end of August with a vigorous and comprehensive reopening plan, offering a mixed academic model, which includes face-to-face instruction, live streamed classes, hybrid classes and online classes. The Reopening Task Force, led by Dr. Anthony Davis, chief operating officer, developed eight protocols to ensure we were ready to welcome students, faculty and staff safety back on campus. We tested all of our staff, faculty and students upon their return to campus. We enforced CDC guidelines and ensured that “all” students, faculty and staff wore masks, washed their hands often and social distanced six feet apart. We provided the entire campus community with COVID-19 bags, which included five masks, hand sanitizer and a lanyard and ID card to ensure everyone had the resources to comply. Unfortunately, despite our exhaustive measures to protect our students from the coronavirus, a member of the Blue Bear family succumbed to this invisible enemy. May we keep the family of Jamesha Waddell, 23, always in our thoughts and prayers. We are now back in session for the spring semester, which we intentionally delayed based on forecasts of peaks of the virus after the Christmas holiday. and are regurgitating all of our efforts from before – and then some. We are ramping up our COVID testing through our partnership with Ottendorf Laboratories of Gastonia, and releasing weekly reports to our campus community. It’s a new day at Livingstone College, as you will see in this digital report; yet we have risen to the occasion to advance our mission forward, despite these unprecedented circumstances. We thank you for your continued support and for your confidence in Livingstone College. It is our faith in God and the favor upon these hallowed grounds established by our ancestors that has brought us this far, and will carry us forward.

Jimmy R. Jenkins, Sr., Ph.D.

President

Table of Contents Each of the stories featured in this report will reflect a “new day” theme for Livingstone College. While we were already in the process of reimagining our educational experience, the global pandemic was a catalyst for us in embracing new technology, forming unlikely yet beneficial partnerships and swiftly executing a plan of action to respond to the demands of society. We are an HBCU rising. May you be empowered by the stories featured in this report, which serve as a snapshot of our intentional mantra of being always resilient, relevant and ready.

TO ADMINISTER $ The pandemic brought together an unlikely partnership in that between Livingstone College and the state of North Carolina, more specifically, the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services: Office of Minority Health and Health Disparities. The state government announced in November 2020 its partnership with Livingstone to provide food resources through churches and nonprofits to vulnerable populations impacted by the pandemic. North Carolina communities hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic will have access to $5 million in grants to help address food insecurity needs, Governor Roy Cooper announced in November. Livingstone College will contract with the A.M.E. Zion Church to administer The Hurt & Hunger Initiative, supporting congregations and nonprofits who are providing meals and food distribution to vulnerable communities, with a special

Ugandan golfers ‘putting’ Livingstone on top

Once upon a time, there was a young man named Titus Okwong, who lived in a land far away called Uganda. His dream was to one day come to America to play golf. Many fairytales begin this way. But Titus’ story is no fairytale. It is a story of hope, perseverance, and a whole lot of faith that led him from East Africa to Livingstone College. “I wanted to be like Tiger Woods,” Titus said. And with that dream, he began to do some research and realized education was the surest vehicle to position himself to one day play in the Professional Golf Association (PGA).

THE STONE LIVINGSTONE COLLEGE ANNUAL REPORT 2020 - 2021

He applied to more than 100 universities in America and said yes to the best offer, which came from Livingstone. It all started with a phone call to Livingstone golf coach, Andre Springs. Titus called him from Uganda and told him he wanted to play for a championship golf team. “I didn’t know who I was talking to,” Springs said. So he told Titus to call him back in a month if he were serious. Titus did just that. He made it to America, but it would take

Titus graduated from Livingstone College in December and became one step closer to realizing his dream to playing professional golf. But this is not how Titus’ story ends. Since his arrival to Livingstone, he has helped to create a pipeline for six other Ugandan players to attend Livingstone to play golf, and they are taking the local golf scene by storm. Coline Ajidra, Edrine Okwong, Ronald Otile, Daniel Baguma, Joel Basalaine and Emmanuel Jakisa are all members of the

Emmanuel used to be Titus’ caddy. They come from a large family that includes 10 siblings in all. “Titus takes care of us all. He pays for my fees and tuition and for our sister’s fees at home. He has paid for everything,” Emmanuel said. Titus worked in the Livingstone cafeteria and sent half his paycheck home to help care for his family.

stone odds ra of D-19 Livingstone College officially reopened its campus Aug. 27, 2020, with staff members reporting to their offices for a virtual opening session followed by COVID-19 testing. The virtual opening session began with opening remarks by Livingstone President Dr. Jimmy R. Jenkins, Sr., who highlighted from the closing of campus due to the global pandemic. The world was attacked by an invisible enemy and like many other college campuses, Livingstone shut down its in-person learning in March and transitioned to distance learning. “It seemed surreal for all of us – more like a nightmare,” Jenkins said. “This enemy has taken away a major part of our DNA. We are social beings, but we now have to learn to curtail socialization. It is disturbing, but it is what it is. We have to follow the protocols so we can survive this pandemic.” Jenkins commended his senior staff members and faculty for adjusting efficiently to the new normal in organizing distance learning and maintaining their engagement with students over the past few months.

THE STONE LIVINGSTONE COLLEGE ANNUAL REPORT 2020 - 2021

Protocols

Jenkins also commended the college’s Reopening Task Force, led by Dr. Anthony J. Davis, senior vice president of Institutional Advancement and chief operating officer, which developed eight protocols to safely reassume campus operations. Davis outlined those protocols in a series of short videos. To view the protocol videos, click here: Livingstone COVID-19 protocol videos. The protocols range from screening, security, protection and prevention, and space utilization to disinfectant, food services, quarantine and isolation, and testing.

THE STONE LIVINGSTONE COLLEGE ANNUAL REPORT 2020 - 2021


TESTING Following the virtual opening session, all staff members, scheduled at various times, reported to Varick Auditorium for COVID-19 testing as part of the college’s screening protocol. Ottendorf Laboratories of Gastonia partnered with Livingstone to identify asymptomatic cases, which have the capability of expeditiously fueling the spread of the virus.
