Dear students, faculty, and staff of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science,

The Provost has just released a statement on the details of the University’s response to Coronovirus COVID-19.

Queen’s on campus in-person undergraduate classes are suspended from Monday March 16, 2020 to Friday March 20, 2020. Graduate classes will continue. The university is not closing and operations will continue. This one week suspension will allow students the opportunity to pack up and travel home should they wish and instructors and academic support staff adequate time to prepare to deliver course content in alternative ways.

Any assignments or tests scheduled during this time period will be rescheduled.

Starting Monday March 23 and for the remainder of the term, the faculty will provide students with an opportunity to complete their term work remotely.

I am sure that you have many questions, and we are working on answering many of these as we are developing this plan. We will be in touch in the next few days with more information.

Regards
Dean Deluzio
