HowardWashingtonDCQuick pivot from fully operational to full physical shutdown in the last 24 hours. All services that can be maintained remotely will be. A handful of essential staff can return to campus as needed but any contact with others is strongly discouraged. Deep cleaning is underway during our spring break (3/14-3/22).

Email from Provost:

"For the safety of our community, and to reduce the potential risk of the transmission or spread of COVID-19, we must significantly de-densify, meaning, decrease the number of people on campus over the next several weeks.
In a previous communication, we announced the transition to online and remote instruction following spring break from March 23, 2020 at least through April 6, 2020. Given the local, national and international developments that have occurred since that communication, we must anticipate that online and remote instruction will need to continue for the duration of the academic semester, and we should plan accordingly."
https://home.howard.edu/corona-virusNoLibrary is physically closed for the remainder of the semester. We are closed/offline during spring break (3/14-3/23). Reference and research services will be available remotely beginning Monday, March 23. Our hours will likely be 9-5pm, though we may expand depending on demand.NoNoAll public facing services will remain operational in a remote capacity (e.g., teaching, reference, research). The university has a strict messaging conformity requirement. We have added a banner/link to our website that links to the univeristy website with relevant information. Changes in access and hours will be updated on our website as needed.M-F 9-5pmNoClosedHybrid reopening beginning August 17 - November 24. All exams will be administered remotely and students will not be permitted to return to campus after Thanksgiving break.

We've recently learned that an announcement may be made the week of July 13 about going online only. I don't expect this to happen unless the ABA circulates updates to its Feburary 2020 announcement.
Unknown at this time. IT oversees printing. We're currently considering three models:

1) Students (following social distancing recommendations) continue to have access to printers, and have access to cleaning supplies to clean the space before/after use.
2) Access to printers is temporarily suspended and staff print jobs for students as needed.
3) Temporarily suspending all printing. I’d justify this from an equity, safety, and capacity perspective. Students who can’t return to campus don’t have access to the printers, so maintaining a high touch/high risk service for a minority of students is risking contamination with little overall benefit.
Zoom, Google Hangouts, Microsoft Teams, TWEN, Skype, BlackboardAlmost all spring courses will be mandatory C/NC. Yearlong courses had the option to propose alternative models. All yearlong courses elected to retain C/NC for both the fall and spring -- except for yearlong clinics/externships (as of 3:48PM 4/6/20)Yes. We are mandatory C/NC for the spring, but will return to standard grading in the summer.R/P -- they're still working out the details, but a remote celebration will take place and an opportuity to gather in person later potentially tied to an event that also has a substantial turnout (e.g., Homecoming)Current discussions underway to anticipate three possibilities:
- 100% return to normal (least likely)
- hybrid return (models vary) with potentially reduced or altered on campus services (e.g., plexiglass at service points, control number of people in spaces at any time)
- delayed start (delay start of academic year until a later date in anticipation of being able to return to a more fully operational model upon our return)

My prediction is the hybrid model. Our responsibility is to plan for all three and be able to pivot quickly as the decision will not likely provide substantial lead time.
