Classes begin in five weeks, so this is a good time to remind faculty and other instructors that they may not change the mode of instruction for autumn classes without prior approval. Students have enrolled – and continue to enroll – in classes based on the listed mode of instruction. Likewise, academic programs have determined their course offerings after considering various factors. No changes should be made at this time without seeking prior approval from the program, college and Office of Academic Affairs. If you have questions about this policy, please contact Senior Vice Provost Kay Wolf. (7/19/2021)
