Spring 2021 - Things To Know

The following are quick reference items to help you prepare for the start of the fall 2020 semester.

Safety on Campus

Masks or face coverings must be worn by everyone while on campus. As knowledge of preventing the spread of the coronavirus has evolved, MCC cleaning procedures have been enhanced to exceed the Centers for Disease Control and Research recommendations. Cleaning supplies with instructions will also be located in each workspace and classroom that is scheduled for use.

Student Acknowledgements

All students registered for in-person or hybrid courses are required to complete the Covid-19 Student Return to Campus Acknowledgement. Here is the faculty’s role in the process.

Syllabus Statements

The CTL website houses a list of recommended syllabus statements from which faculty can select to include in their syllabuses. This list includes verbiage for the Face Coverings requirement and Class Recordings, which are now particularly relevant. Non-faculty may also want to review these statements for consistency in communicating with students.
