Guiding Principles

path to fall semesterWe Each Play a Role
Online learning will be critical to the continuity of education.

At the same time, the on-campus experience will play a central role in the college’s mission — even with the restrictions that the pandemic will place on campus life. The classroom experience, student life activities and direct interactions with faculty and staff help our students engage in discussion, skills and experiences that will be crucial for their later success.

Students who choose remote learning this fall are still every bit a part of our college community. They will be engaging with expert faculty, participating remotely in student life activities, and progressing toward a highly valued degree.

Stay Home if You’re Sick
Students and employees should not put others at risk by coming to campus if they are showing symptoms of COVID-19. Everyone is required to complete daily symptom checks before coming to campus and should stay home if they exhibit symptoms or have had recent contact with someone who has tested positive.

Accommodation of Schedules
Many students and employees have family care responsibilities. Those responsibilities will be affected by decisions made by local school districts, daycare centers and others. The college will seek to accommodate the schedules of people with significant family care responsibilities in a reasonable way.

Special Circumstances

Employees and Students over 65 or with Underlying Conditions

Employees needing accommodations for special circumstances should work with their supervisors or contact Human Resources.
