EI Starting Fall 2021 Online

Dear EI Community,
 
We hope that you have had a restful and healthy summer, and we look forward to a wonderful fall semester of learning.

Our hope has been to offer each class simultaneously online and in person, from the very first session to the finale. However, in view of the surging Delta variant, and of the indoor mask mandate in Baltimore City, we have decided that all EI courses will begin entirely online. That will both protect the health of students, faculty, and their families, and promote effective learning. We do not expect this online only modality to last the whole semester, however. We will monitor conditions, and as quickly as possible return to dual mode instruction—onsite and online united as one learning community. At present, we plan to be online only through at least Sept. 17, with timely notification about what will follow.
 
The library will remain open to current students and faculty. (Remember that presently everyone, regardless of vaccination status, is required to wear a mask at all times while in our building.)

Please know we are striving for the common good of our entire learning community, and those whom they love and serve.
 
May the remainder of your summer bring health, peace, and continued rejuvenation.
 
With hope,
Deans Laytham, Fosarelli, and Hancock
