Faculty Office Hours
Faculty will have the option to teach in-person or remotely for J-Term due to the rise of the omicron variant of COVID-19. Students will be notified by the registrar ONLY if there is a shift in the delivery method of their J-Term course. Faculty and staff should consult with their supervisors about the possibility of flexible work arrangements through January 17, 2022. Everyone is encouraged to conduct meetings remotely through this time.
Whether faculty are teaching online or face-to-face, there is always the expectation that they are available for students.
The CDC guidelines include the following recommendation: “Replace in-person meetings with video or teleconference calls whenever possible.” However, if in-person meetings are permissible, masks must be worn by both student and faculty in such meetings.
