Guidelines issued for academic restart

The university’s Academic Restart Subcommittee has issued guidelines to aid faculty and academic staff as they prepare for the fall semester.

The guidelines address:

  • In-person and remote/online course choices
  • Steps to physically return to campus
  • Recommended syllabus information
  • Online teaching resources
  • Student remote/online tech support
  • Student compliance: On-campus COVID-19 protection measures
  • Student advising information
  • Using Zoom to engage students in remote/online learning

The guidelines, formatted as one-page flyers, resulted from members’ collaborative efforts since mid-April in support of faculty and academic staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. They provide clear information about decisions reached to protect the university’s academic mission during this difficult time. The guidelines will continue to be updated as additional information is available.
