Teaching Preparedness

Last updated Wednesday, July 8, 2020 at 10:30 a.m.

The Proposed Model:

Opening largely in person, with an August 31, 2020 start date. Faculty prepared to possibly move to remote learning after Thanksgiving.

Campus Opening Schedule:

Return to campus will happen slowly in waves. The timeline will be adjusted as needed with guidance from the State and CDC. Social distancing and 50% capacity caps for offices are still in effect. There is no requirement that offices be fully staffed.  Remote work remains an option for those who can do so effectively.
