All students will be asked to sign a Community Compact as a condition for returning to campus.
We will strictly follow University protocols for viral testing and all other health measures stipulated for students, faculty, and staff, which will continue to be updated based on public health conditions.
For Fall 2020, YSE courses will be delivered in three formats: in-person, hybrid, and remote. To find the delivery format for any individual course, look in the “Fall 2020” column on the YSE course listing. Importantly, these designations are provided based on how the faculty member intends to teach the course. Regardless of the delivery format, all courses will be set up for synchronous zoom participation, recorded, and posted to the respective course Canvas pages for asynchronous viewing.
*Note: Because of the complexities of gateway testing for all students, and the need to strictly monitor space use, all YSE classes will be held online for week 1 – August 31 – September 4. This additional time will ensure that everyone is able to get their results back from gateway testing and that registration for courses is settled enough for the Academic Affairs team to ensure that no more than the maximum allowed number of students will be in any room.
All buildings except Kroon Hall and the restroom in the front vestibule of Marsh Hall will be closed to community members except for those with assigned offices who have been authorized to return to campus. The BYO Café and all shared kitchen facilities will be closed. Two tents will be installed Two tents will be installed, one beside Marsh Hall and one in the Kroon Courtyard, to serve as classroom and meeting spaces. Schedules detailing the week’s events will be posted outside of each tent. Socially distanced studying will be allowed in Kroon Hall until 7 p.m. A health and safety monitor in Kroon Hall will help ensure compliance.
International students are currently facing visa delays and travel restrictions, which may require them to start the program online until they can get to New Haven. We are preparing for students to participate in school activities online from distant time zones.
