Coronavirus Update – March 20, 2020

| Emergency Updates

We want to provide continuing updates on the College’s response to the COVID-19 emergency.

Resumed instruction

  • As of today, the College has put into place the essential components of a remote learning experience, including instruction, academic support, and counseling intended to allow students to continue making progress in their academic work.
  • Course instruction formally will begin Tuesday, March 24, although some professors may have already begun with their assignments.  For students, please make sure that you regularly check your emails for any updates from your professors or the College.

Semester calendar

  • Next week, no later than Friday, March 27, the College will announce its full calendar for the remainder of the spring semester and commencement exercises. As you might know, the systems upon which higher education has relied for close to a half-century are being reconsidered and altered. We will make the best decision possible for the safety and wellbeing of our students and families.
