Sent on behalf of Provost Jerold Hale and Faculty Senate President Jamie Harvey
UTC will offer a full and robust set of courses for Summer Term II, which meets June 24 through Aug. 6. As we continue to confront health and safety issues related to the COVID-19 virus, most classes will be offered online. Some face-to-face courses will be offered.
Face-to-face courses will be those least amenable to online instruction and that are necessary to keep students in related academic programs on track for degree completion. Face-to-face courses will involve clinical, laboratory or studio instruction that cannot be accomplished online. Some studio courses can and will be offered online.
The health and safety of faculty, staff and students is our top priority. For a course to be considered for face-to-face instruction, a written proposal to do so must be approved by the Department Head or program Director, Dean of the College in which the course is offered and the Provost. Courses endorsed for face-to-face instruction require approved safety protocols which may include, but are not limited to:
- Appropriate social distancing of students and faculty
- Disinfecting of all contacted surfaces between classes
- Disinfecting all contacted surfaces within class meetings if different students will use equipment or workstations
Use of masks by students and faculty in face-to-face courses will be mandatory.
Additional details regarding face-to-face course approvals will be provided Friday, May 8.
