The winter term will be online
McMaster University has announced that the winter term in 2021 will be online similar to the fall 2020 term. The decision has been made to ensure the health and safety of students, faculty and staff and to help keep the community as safe as possible as the pandemic continues. A statement by Provost Susan Tighe goes on to say,
“McMaster remains committed to making decisions based on the health and well-being of our students, faculty and staff. Every level of public health continues to stress the need to maintain physical distancing and anticipates the pandemic continuing for the foreseeable future. To keep our community as safe as possible, the winter academic term will be online with only a few exceptions where program requirements or the need for access to specialized equipment or facilities may still require some in-person campus time.”
