During this unprecedented time, COVID-19 has forced Goucher to move to a distance-learning model as mandated by governmental and public health authorities. This means that many campus facilities and programs may be temporarily closed and/or limited to accommodate such a model. The college is committed to our students’ learning and well-being, and is doing everything it can to foster meaningful interactions between and among students, faculty, staff and the broader community, while having to maintain physical distancing requirements.
A task force has been assembled and is working diligently to plan for the fall and develop strategies to bring our students, faculty, and staff back to campus in a safe and responsible manner.

This is the first of a series of weekly emails we will be sending out this summer spelling out our plans for the fall. Subsequent emails will come from the Fall Re-Opening Taskforce, a group of thirty-five faculty, staff, and students who are working together to ensure that we can safely resume instruction on campus this fall. Each week we will try to focus on one major component of our plans and posting updates to our website. This week’s topic: changes to our fall academic calendar and schedule.

Dear Goucher students, I wanted to provide you an update with the latest information from the Fall Re-Opening Task Force, a 30-person team that has been hard at work this past month figuring out how we can resume instruction on campus in the fall in a safe and responsible manner.

I hope that you and those close to you are staying well, and staying home to protect yourself and others. I have some important information and reminders to share with you today; some are COVID-related and some are just reminders as we move forward into late spring and summer.
