Given the challenges associated with the ongoing COVID pandemic, the complexity of an online start to the semester as well as the transition to in person learning in the third week of the semester, instructors have been asked to provide reasonable flexibility regarding assignment deadlines and assessments to students affected by illness, quarantine/isolation, or travel delays. This was in addition to standard guidance provided annually to instructors on requests they may receive for academic accommodations for a variety of reasons. The University also recently updated guidance to faculty on supporting religious observance during the semester, as well as created a policy limiting assignments that can be due immediately following a break.
