In such a case, the faculty member will have a contingency plan in place. The professor may move the class online for a short period of time, or they may have an alternative approach that can involve any number of options, such as guest lecturers or independent study.

Clark’s classes are being taught in person only. Students with extenuating health or personal circumstances that prevent them from attending in person are encouraged to contact the Dean of the College office.

Students who are in isolation need to email their professors to let them know they will not be in class, and inquire how to keep up with their course work. Faculty are expected to have academic continuity plans in place to allow an isolating student to continue with their work. However, this does not necessarily mean the course will be taught online, and may involve other instructional approaches.

Any immunocompromised student is encouraged to email their professors regarding the possibility of an online learning option. However, faculty are not required to offer online options, or may not be able to accommodate that approach (in a lab situation, for instance). This may require the student to change their schedule, if possible. Students should consult with their faculty adviser to identify alternative solutions.

While Clark is committed to an in-person educational experience in the Spring 2022 semester, a positive test  can mean a student will need to temporarily isolate. Academic Services will work with students and their professors to ensure accommodations are made when necessary and appropriate. Our faculty have continuity-of-learning plans that could include some remote learning, but which likely will also have options that don’t require online instruction.

With the high level of vaccinated/boosted community members and the mask mandate, Clark is no longer requiring physical distancing in classrooms.
