Message to Faculty - Preparing for Return to Classes on Monday, November 5

To: All Faculty

From: John Brenkman, Interim Provost

Classes resume Monday morning. The transition is likely to be stressful for students, faculty, and staff alike. We should do all we can to expedite the return to normal activity.

Please communicate with your students via Blackboard to remind them of their assignments for the coming week, and ask those who are unable to make it to campus because of the storm to inform you.

If you yourself are unable to make it to campus for class, inform your students well in advance and notify your department or department chair as soon as possible.

Consider using Blackboard to craft assignments for students unable to attend class or to conduct a session you are unable to give on campus.

By Wednesday the plans for making up the classes missed last week will be announced.
