January 2022 Intensive Class Update

Dear Students,

I’m reaching out to you today ahead of your January Intensive class, for which you are registered (starting Tuesday, January 18).

Undergraduate courses: as noted in yesterday’s email from Dean Shepardson and Provost Blancero, these courses will run as planned with in-person instruction. Faculty and students are expected to teach and learn in the assigned classroom. 
Graduate courses: all intensive courses have been scheduled in hybrid format, as is customary for graduate programs.
Consistent with this year’s academic policy for classes running during the fall and spring semesters, remote access to class will be granted to any undergraduate student with a verified health reason that prohibits you from attending class. In this case, your professor may elect to give Zoom access to the class or may develop other alternatives so you do not fall behind in class. If you feel you cannot be in-person for class at any point during the week, please reach out to your professor as soon as possible to explain the situation and ask for an accommodation.  
Please note that just as your health situation may suddenly change, the same possibility applies to your professor. We will do everything in our power to ensure you are able to successfully complete your in-person class next week, but I ask in advance that we all find ways to be flexible and patient with our circumstances and one another as we begin 2022. 
I hope you are excited about coming back to campus and we look forward to seeing you.

Cathy L. Carlson, Ed.D.
Associate Provost for Undergraduate Education
