The College of Science and Department of Earth Science are committed to keeping our students and employees safe.  Following are some steps we are taking to minimize transmission of COVID-19:

  • For Spring 2021 we are offering classes in traditional online, live streamed online, and face-to-face formats. For face-to-face classes we limit in-class attendance to less than half of the room capacity in order to ensure distancing.
  • Masks or other face coverings are required in classrooms and lab rooms.
  • We ask all students, faculty, and staff to stay home if they are experiencing any symptoms that may be indicative of COVID-19.

For information on science related to the novel coronavirus, please see the Science of COVID FAQ page.
