All summer 2020 courses and programs will be moved online or canceled.

 The news came in an email to students from Dean of the College of Arts, Sciences, and Engineering Jeffrey Runner on Saturday.

This is the latest in a series of measures taken by administration to minimize the spread of COVID-19, beginning with moving all courses online for the spring 2020 semester after spring break, and removing most students from campus. 

The email said that “all in-person instruction, programs, events, research and experiences” for the summer will be moved online or, if their nature prevents them from transitioning to an online format, canceled.

Some summer courses may be moved to different sessions. Students whose classes have been canceled will be notified by email.

The change applies to summer programs like “pre-college programs through the Office of Admissions, in person summer research or experiential programs, and sports camps in Athletics,” according to the email. Students are asked to directly contact their individual program to learn whether and how it will be hosted this year.
