College During COVID: How will UAA operate this fall?

by Green & Gold News  |   

Today's College During COVID question is: How will UAA operate this fall?

As announced in May, UAA's fall courses would be a mix of in-person but predominantly alternate course delivery. Here's how that will impact our operations for the semester:

  • Academics: Most fall 2020 classes will continue via alternate course delivery with a limited number of face-to-face courses.
    • Faculty must request authorization from their dean or director to conduct any face-to-face courses or course activities. Any on-campus courses require a COVID-19 hazard mitigation plan approved by Risk Management.
  • Workplace: Most employees continue to work at home.
    • Deans, directors and unit leads should continue to follow the prescribed process for in-person and remote work, particularly with regard to campus access due to face-to-face course delivery.
  • Building access: Campus access is generally restricted, meaning keys and WOLFcards are required to access campus buildings.
  • Safety measures: Students, faculty and staff entering UAA facilities must adhere to on-site safety guidelines.

This is a challenging time, but we are resilient. We adapt. Let’s all do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19. Access resources, FAQs and more at uaa.alaska.edu/covid19.
