Guidance on Summer Courses Post-Isaias

Dear Faculty and Graduate Student Instructors:

As the impact of damage from Tropical Storm Isaias has become more clear, we are sharing guidance on how to proceed with your summer courses for those of you who are teaching during this current session.

Gov. Lamont has declared a state of emergency as power outages are widespread across the state. We understand that many of our instructors and currently enrolled summer students may not have power and/or internet access because of storm damage. Please proceed with your courses with flexibility. If you do not have power/internet or have heard from several of your students that they are without power/internet, you are encouraged to adjust course deadlines and assignments as needed. Please be in contact with your students to share any adjustments and to encourage them to reach out if they need extensions or other accommodations over the next week.

Thank you,


Carl Lejuez
Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs
