The following plan is put forth in an attempt to retain as much of the intimate, personal, student-centered approach to teaching and learning that is the cornerstone of a Wesleyan education while, at the same time, observing CDC guidelines and keeping students and faculty safe. A recent survey of faculty showed that Wesleyan professors strongly desire to teach, safely, in some form of a face-to-face modality. We will make every effort to facilitate this type of experience safely. We recognize that hybrid online-synchronous/face to face teaching is not the ideal modality, but also understand that under these circumstances, it may be necessary.
These guidelines, policies, and protocols will be in effect for both the January Residency and the Spring 2021 Semester.
The College encourages students and faculty to adhere to safe practices to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in the teaching and learning spaces. Adherence to the universal mask policy in classes by faculty and students is required. To read the full plan, click here.
