Update on Fall 2021 Schedule
Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,
As you may have heard, Baruch College recently shifted course modalities (online, hybrid, in-person) for about 15 percent of our scheduled sections this fall. These changes follow guidance from CUNY and reflect significant improvement in pandemic conditions, allowing for a greater on-campus presence and giving us the ability to leverage the benefits of a reopening NYC.
Mindful of the need for students and faculty to make plans for the coming semester, I would like to assure you that we do not anticipate any further large-scale shifts in the course schedule or in the modalities of scheduled sections.
What You Need to Know
- Students: Earlier this week, students whose schedules were affected received a message from me titled Course Modality Changes. It includes a video on how to check your course schedule in CUNYfirst and other helpful links.
- Faculty: Your dean or department chair has reached out directly to let you know if your course modality has changed. If it has, please contact the students on your roster with details regarding in-person dates and accommodations.
Stay Informed: I encourage you to check Baruch Forward, our one-stop Safe Campus Reopening Hub, for the latest news and resources.
Meeting Your Needs
While we understand that these course-modality changes may introduce scheduling challenges for some students, we are confident there is sufficient time to find viable options before the start of the semester.
We are grateful for your patience and understanding as we navigate through uncharted territory together. I wish you the best for the summer and look forward to seeing you on campus in August!
Interim Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs
