Dear EI Community,
We hope that you have had a restful and healthy Christmas. We look forward to a wonderful spring semester of learning together.
As you know, our hope has been to offer each class simultaneously online and in person this semester. However, in view of the surging omicron variant, we have decided that all EI courses will begin entirely online through the month of January, with the option to attend class in-person beginning Tuesday, February 1.
This does not affect the availability of the library; current EI faculty and students are welcome to come in person if they are in compliance with the St. Mary’s COVID policy (either fully vaccinated or having received an exemption and following the additional requirements). At present, everyone, regardless of vaccination status, is required to wear a mask at all times while in our building.
If you plan to come on campus, please be sure you have completed the confidential and mandatory COVID disclosure form. If you are not fully vaccinated and would like to receive an exemption, you may use this form.
Deans Laytham, Fosarelli, and Hancock
