As course registration has begun for the Fall and Fall/Winter terms, we must start looking ahead to the next major milestone: planning for the Winter 2021 term. We remain hopeful that it will be possible to welcome some students back to campus in January; however, it seems very unlikely that the pandemic will be fully resolved by then.
In planning for Winter 2021, we must remain responsive to evolving public health guidelines. We will continue to be guided by the key principles outlined by the Carleton University Scenario Planning working group, and we will continue to place the health and well-being of students, staff, faculty and the broader community above all other considerations. If public health restrictions are eased such that some face-to-face instruction could resume, we recognize that many students may not be able – or may not be comfortable – to return to campus.
Therefore, course instructors have been advised to develop their Winter 2021 term courses in a manner that will allow them to be delivered remotely. If Carleton University is able to offer some face-to-face instruction in the Winter 2021 term, undergraduate students may have the option to attend some in-person classes or continue taking all their courses remotely.
These are challenging times, but the Carleton community is committed to continuing to support you in every step of your academic journey.
Stay safe and well,
Vice-President (Students and Enrolment)
