Fall 2020 Student, Faculty and Staff Engagement Guidelines and Procedures for non-essential gatherings and activities outside of the classroom
With practical intentionality, we are taking a multi-staged approach to engaging in non-essential social and extracurricular activities beyond the classroom in order to manage early detection of COVID-19, acclimate the University community to social distancing protocols and ensure students stay on track for degree completion. The Restart Task Force will make recommendations to President Collins on moving to each next stage. These are subject to change based on federal, state and local requirements. Transitioning from one stage to the next will depend on test results, ability to deal with any positive test results (contact tracing, isolation and quarantine capacity) and regulations current at the time. We believe this will be similar to the timing used for regional reopening.
The health, safety and well-being of our greater Clarkson community is our highest priority. We are striving to make decisions that build the resilience of our community as well as perpetuate our commitment to the Clarkson experience that prepares all students to be global leaders.
Note: For academic classes and faculty-led research projects that are meeting outside of a campus classroom/research laboratory or making a local field trip, please refer to the Guidance on the Office Of the Provost intranet pages.
