To WCSU students, faculty and staff:
We have been meeting regularly with the Board of Regents for the Connecticut State University and Colleges system, as well as representatives from the state Department of Public Health for guidance on our COVID-19 planning efforts as we move into the summer.
Based on that guidance, our procedures on campus will be designed to be as protective as possible. We will also evaluate our plans every month and, by the beginning of the fall semester, we hope to be able to operate as close to pre-Covid “normal” as possible.
Staff, faculty and students who visit or work on campus during the month of June are asked to observe these rules:
Employees and students who do not feel well should stay home and seek medical attention. Student who test positive for the virus should notify WCSU Health Services. Employees should notify the Human Resources Department.
We look forward to once again working together in person on behalf of our students. Thank you and have a great summer!
Dr. John B. Clark
We look forward to working with you in the next semester even as change and unexpected challenges may continue.
As the academic year begins, your schedule is likely to include a mix of online and in-person classes, and some courses that will be a combination.
The fall semester will undoubtedly continue to be filled with new experiences and approaches. Thank you for your commitment to helping students learn even during a time of change and, potentially, some upheaval.
The administration has spent the spring and summer in preparation for the academic year, so that everyone on campus remains healthy and safe while we teach, work and learn. All procedures follow guidelines established by the state of Connecticut and the federal Centers for Disease Control.
We have developed guidelines to help us all protect each other. You will see reminders on posters throughout the campuses with notes about safe practices, including maintaining a six-foot distance from others, and wearing a face covering inside and outside of buildings.
