Dear Faculty Colleagues –
Thank you for all the work you are doing this fall to keep Evergreen and our community safer. After talking with many of you, our remote classes appear to be off to another strong start.
President Bridges mentioned in a recent email that Evergreen will continue on its remote footing unless there are major changes related to COVID-19. With this in mind, we are planning for most offerings to be remote in winter quarter. We will also be continuing with our hybrid learning pilot project. This fall, Evergreen was able to support about 6-8 programs, along with a handful of in-person ILCs or on-campus internships, totaling approximately 200 students with access to in-person learning. We are assessing whether we can safely increase that capacity in winter quarter.
The curriculum team wrote last week with information about winter catalog changes. Faculty who wish to conduct in-person learning in their winter offerings should submit a request, using our online form, by noon on Friday, October 16, 2020 (see below).
We are restricted by limited resources on campus, including space, equipment, PPE, staff availability, and our capacity to respond to a potential outbreak. Our priorities for in-person learning are outlined on the online submission form. Among those priorities are continued safety, maintaining crucial operations, and getting students to graduation.
We expect to provide approvals to in-person learning requests by the end of October. Questions should be directed to email@example.com.
