Fall 2020 Return
Since our move to online instruction last spring, we have been eagerly looking forward to our return to campus this fall. This summer, the MA in Arts Leadership Program (MAAL) administrators, staff, and faculty have been diligently working in preparation for a successful new academic year. Throughout the planning process, we have prioritized health and safety concerns as we have established strategies to deliver impactful educational activities.
In light of those priorities, fall coursework in MAAL will occur exclusively through online modes of instruction. Instructors for your individual courses will outline any exceptions to this format (field trips, one-on-one meetings etc) on the first class of your course. Any such exceptions will continue to adhere to best practices regarding your health and safety including mask wearing and social distancing.
Should you have any question or concerns please contact MAAL Director Fleurette S. Fernando: firstname.lastname@example.org
