After opening of our residence halls, Western Connecticut State University students are living on campus and some classes are being held in person. Clubs are recruiting new members and all offices are available to offer support. We continue to observe guidelines to ensure the most protection possible against the pandemic, including a mask mandate, social distancing and appointments for face-to-face meetings, which will help us meet our educational mission.
I thank everyone who worked with us to achieve conditions that make life at WCSU as safe as possible during this time of pandemic. We will approach any new challenges with the same strength and vigor.
Please remember that faculty and staff are here as resources while we all look forward to a successful academic year.
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.
