Dear colleagues,

Given the current extraordinary conditions, we have decided in consultation with the Academic Senate to offer summer session courses through remote instruction to the maximum extent possible. A message will be sent to students today in order to facilitate their planning for housing and travel.

We recognize that planning for summer session remote instruction will require additional local preparation and potentially changes to the current planned summer course offerings.

Ideally, all currently planned summer courses will continue to be offered. Changes to the planned offerings can be reviewed in the coming weeks. In an effort to avoid conflict with the transition to remote instruction during Week 1 of spring quarter, any discussion of summer session schedule changes will begin in Week 2. Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning Michael Dennin will follow up with more information.

We recognize the critical role that summer session courses play in the timely graduation of many of our students and we appreciate your flexibility and patience.
