Our Goal

During a still fluid pandemic, we must be flexible to ensure both that residential experience and the health, safety and well-being of everyone in our community. A mix of class formats—in-person, online and a blend of those formats in hybrid courses—gives us the opportunity to provide an outstanding educational experience while keeping everyone involved safe. We are working to ensure that every new first-year student will have the opportunity for at least some in-person instruction this fall. At the same time, the residential experience offers value that goes beyond the classroom, from living learning communities to tutoring and other resources.
