How can I Mask Up, Back Up, and Wash Up effectively on campus? Wear your mask! Masks should cover your nose and mouth and should be worn indoors in public spaces and outdoors when you can not effectively be physically distant from others. If you do not own a mask, you may purchase one in the Campus Store. Back Up: practice physical distancing by leaving 6 feet between you and others. Wash up: wash your hands often.
What should I do if I was exposed to someone with COVID-19? Report any potential exposure or symptoms to the Dean of Students Office and follow any instructions they provide to seek medical care or to quarantine.
What should I do if I see another student who isn't wearing a mask? Remember, this is the year of community. Please remind them nicely to wear their mask. We are all doing this for each other. Should you have questions, you may contact the Dean of Students Office.
How will office hours be managed? All support services are still fully available to you; some are just offered in a different way. For example:
Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,
Thank you again for the outstanding work you have done to transition to remote learning and teaching this springsemester. We know it has been challenging, but every day we are impressed with your ability to be flexible, creative, and accepting of unprecedented change.
At our most recent President’s Advisory Council meeting, we made the decision to remain fully online through the summer session as we continue to respond to the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic. This was a difficult decision, but we remain concerned about the health and well-being of our campus community in the weeks ahead. Although it is currently snowing outside our windows, we know that some summer courses start in less than 4 weeks from today, so we needed to move forward with this decision sooner rather than later.
At this time, although we have made the decision to continue online instruction for summer session, we have not made decisions regarding other summer programming and events. We will ensure you are updated as things change, which they will. What will not change is our commitment to our students and to our shared sense of community.
