Provost and Senior Vice President Patrick Phillips announced that summer classes at the University of Oregon will be taught remotely.
The decision was made in consultation with deans, administrators and other university stakeholders, and is the most recent development in the response to the coronavirus crisis.
“While we know that the decision to continue remote instruction through the summer will be disappointing to some, our intent is to make decisions that are in the best interest of the community and the University of Oregon, and to communicate them in a timely manner,” Phillips said in a message sent to all university students, faculty and staff.
His announcement pertains to classes only. A decision regarding noninstructional activities is to follow, once more guidance from health officials is available.
As part of its commitment to ensuring that the transition to remote instruction and coursework is as smooth as possible, the university has put together a variety of resources for both students and faculty.
Phillips commended the UO community for its ability to adapt efficiently and effectively to an unprecedented situation. Read his full message and other updates on the provost’s website.
