A message from the Dean of Humanities
Dear Humanities students, staff and faculty,
I understand everyone has questions and concerns about how the rest of term will unfold, given the cessation later today of all remaining face-to-face classes and in-person final exams due to the quickly evolving situation in the province around COVID-19.
Let me reassure you all that the Faculty’s departmental chairs, instructors and the entire team in my office are working together to find solutions that prioritize everyone’s health and safety, while also fulfilling our educational mission. This will take a little time as we coordinate our efforts.
By Wednesday, March 18, all instructors will need to provide information to their students about how remaining course content and assessment will be handled. All changes will reflect McMaster Humanities’ continued commitment to accessibility and equity.
Please continue to check for University-wide updates at the Daily News and McMaster’s dedicated COVID-19 website, which includes sections for students, faculty and staff. Please also keep a close eye on your Avenue to Learn pages and McMaster email.
I am confident that working together we can ensure that teaching and learning will continue through online delivery and other solutions, and assessment will be completed in a timely and equitable manner.
Dean, Faculty of Humanities
