Michael Bernstein, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, has issued a message to faculty regarding hybrid accommodations for the Fall Semester. The message reads as follows:
As the beginning of the semester draws near, I would like to remind you that students enrolled in in-person classes may have to participate remotely for portions, or even the entirety, of their courses. Many of our out-of-state and international students will need to partake in a mandatory two-week quarantine; some of our students may have health-related concerns that require them to join remotely. We are asking you to ensure that students can fully participate in your courses in any format.
These accommodations should be outlined in your syllabi. If you need assistance with course design that enables proper hybrid participation, CELT can offer support. Student Accessibility Support Center (SASC) also has resources to help you reach all learners, regardless of their abilities.
I am grateful for your efforts to accommodate our students. Please do not hesitate to let me know what the Provost’s Office can do to support you.
