How will the campus closure impact graduating seniors?

The most significant impact for graduating seniors is the potential cancellation of commencement on May 3. If the conditions make it safe for graduates, their families and the campus community to gather for the ceremony at a later date, the College will reschedule commencement.

What about classes with Labs/Studio requirements?

Faculty members are encouraged to review their expected learning outcomes and design activities for students to achieve those outcomes remotely, if possible. Students should communicate with his/her Department/Division Chair to ensure they are able to complete their labs/studio requests.

What about courses with performance requirements, like Music and Theatre?

Faculty are encouraged to review their expected learning outcomes and design activities to achieve those outcomes remotely, if possible. Students should communicate with his/her Department/Division Chair to ensure they are able to complete their performance requirements.

What about classes that have required off-campus activities like Nursing or Education Studies?

The College is working on solutions to these challenging situations. Please work directly with the Matt Saderholm, dean of the faculty.

What kind of interactions between faculty members and students are appropriate after Friday?

It is important that all students have access to materials and communication to support course completion. Therefore, it is critical for faculty members to determine if students will have sufficient internet access for required assignments and/or activities. If this is a challenge, inform us so we may be of assistance or change your course completion plan accordingly.
