Academic Continuity Training, Workshops & Support Sessions

The Academic Continuity Planning team’s goal is to provide the tools, training, support, and resources that allow students and faculty to stay connected and academically engaged.

The support and resources offered throughout the remainder of the semester will help faculty adapt existing teaching and learning goals to an online format.
