We’re doing all we can to ensure that the places where we teach and learn are safe.
(Even) smaller class sizes
We are limiting the number of students in classrooms, studios, and labs to follow physical distancing requirements. Room-specific plans are being developed for every classroom and instructional space, including labs, studios, and rehearsal spaces.
Cloth face coverings must be worn by all faculty and students in classrooms, labs, and studios.
Do not attend class if you start to show symptoms or have been in contact with those who do. Flexible class attendance policies will accommodate students missing class time due to illness, self-quarantine, and/or isolation.
In addition to regular cleaning, students and faculty are responsible for using wipes to disinfect desktops, tabletops, armrests, doorknobs, and other surfaces they use at the end of classes. Cleaning products and hand sanitizer supplied by the college will be available in all classrooms. Guidelines for individual classes will be communicated by faculty and included in course syllabi.
Flexibility and patience
Course room and meeting-time assignments may change, given the reduced capacity in each room caused by the need for physical distancing, as well as to increase the time interval between classes as a way to reduce congestion during passing time, make time available for cleaning, and promote air exchange.
Office hours and tutoring
Expect to meet with your instructors and advisors online whether you are on campus or away. In some cases, you may be able to meet with a faculty member outside or in a space that allows for physical distancing.
Individual and small group tutoring will be online. If physical distancing requirements can be met and students are wearing masks and comfortable, a limited amount of in-person tutoring may be possible.
