The delivery of face-to-face classes to freshmen level students is being prioritized in order to provide a solid foundation for higher education success. However, much of the Spring 2021 curriculum will be either fully online or delivered using a hybrid format (some face-to-face and some online), with labs, studios, performance, and hands-on courses offered in-person for sophomore, junior, and senior students.
Should the need arise, our faculty and staff are prepared to continue their instruction online and remotely, with students able to receive support as needed. Having already dealt with this transition once before, we are well-prepared for a smooth transition if safer-at-home orders are again put in place. As always, creating a student-focused, excellent learning experience for our students is our top priority.
Marian University’s priority is to provide students with a high-quality educational experience that enables them to continue their academic progress, with minimal delays or disruptions. We are committed to providing a robust curriculum, as well as advising and other academic supports to facilitate students’ academic success, within an environment that promotes the health and safety of our community. Creating this environment requires a number of public health behavioral guidelines that all members of the Marian University community will be required to follow.
