Note To Faculty

Dear Faculty,

You should have completed some tasks to begin teaching remotely. Faculty should use the resources below to continue to facilitate student success remotely. We do not know how long we will have to work remotely, but try to make the best of it and practice some flexibility with students. From here on, the Center for Teaching for Learning will be working hard with other departments to help you sustain Academic Continuity
