Coronavirus Update for Faculty Teaching Field-based Classes: March 12, 2020


Please be advised that if you are teaching any field-based classes such as student teaching, practicum, internship, etc., your students should continue in their field placement and abide by the respective rules of their field-based sites.

However, please communicate with all students who are doing field placements that if they have compromised immune systems, it is incumbent upon THE STUDENT to inform their instructor(s).

In these situations, instructors are required to make alternate arrangements which do not pose a threat to the students while also allowing them to complete their field placements.

If you have questions, please contact me.
