Faculty can temporarily reduce classroom density between August 25 and September 17:
- All faculty members who are assigned in-person classes this fall have the option of teaching with a reduced classroom density, with a goal of providing each student with at least one in-person experience per week for each (in-person) course.
- Deans have the flexibility to make immediate decisions regarding acute situations in their colleges and schools, including approving a limited number of requests from faculty members for temporary changes to teaching modality.
Unit leaders who were planning to implement flexible work arrangements (FWA) at the start of the school year can now delay implementation until September 17 for non-student facing/non-direct student support personnel.
We encourage large events to be held outdoors whenever possible. If an event must stay indoors, please be mindful of our masking recommendation and consider a larger space to allow for social distancing.
We are increasing vaccination efforts and promotions among our students and broader community. Please be on the lookout for more information later this week.
