As summer progresses and we look forward to welcoming students back to campus in the fall, we need to continue to make adjustments so that we can offer our students the best possible educational experience.
Given vaccination rates and new case trends both locally and nationally as well as recent announcements by the state that reduce restrictions on indoor meetings starting July 1, we are now able to loosen restrictions on our fall class sizes. After consultation with University Physician Dave Weismantel, the Provost has lifted the 100-student cap on all in-person classes. So, for fall semester 2021, there are no distancing requirements in classrooms or capacity caps expected at this time. Please evaluate the courses in your college to determine which courses can and should have their caps increased.
