We are following the guidance of Yale University, as well as public health experts and government officials, in responding to the COVID-19 outbreak. In all decisions, our top priorities will be to assure the health and wellbeing of our community and the greater society of which we are an inextricable part, and to do everything in our power to see that the educational mission of this institution continues uninterrupted.
Academic Affairs and Student Life
For our academic plans to be successful, we will need to hold students to a high standard of conduct. Students will be required to wear masks in the building and maintain strict distancing from one another. We will add signage, stock supplies, and reduce seating to assist. Things will be different at Evans this fall and we will all need to work together, as a community. Even then, there is the risk that conditions will change and we will be required to update our approach. That could happen at the course, program, school, university, or state levels.
Our international students, especially those starting the program, may face visa delays and travel restrictions, which will require them to start the program online until they can get to New Haven. Therefore, at least at the beginning of the semester, there will be students participating online from distant time zones. In constructing our class schedule, we will be sensitive to time differences. Similarly, we will do everything possible to ensure that students in distant time zones have reasonable access to CDO programs, company interactions, and student-run extra-curricular activities.
