Fall 2020 Academic Planning

The recent global and national developments around COVID (Coronavirus) 19 have afforded us new challenges to how we deliver on our promises to WCU students. As we continue to offer summer courses and programs remotely, we are actively planning for the fall 2020 semester. We anticipate that we will be operating in a multimodal instructional arrangement with faculty flexibility, student success, staff support, and multiple pedagogical and logistical realities as our guides.

The fall instructional plan provides a roadmap to address current uncertainties while adhering to best pedagogical standards, teaching excellence, quality staff engagement, and preserving to the degree circumstances allow, the valuable face to face components of our residential programs.

The plan provides a shared framework for how we will prepare for and operate instructionally to

  1. incorporate pedagogical goals while honoring the disciplinary differences that exist at WCU;
  2. consider and apply the criteria that will determine the most appropriate instructional modality for each course;
  3. make (and share) decisions that will guide student understanding and choice regarding their programs of study; and
  4. meet institutional infrastructure and logistical processes in preparation for the fall semester, e.g., classrooms, technology, book rental and purchase, student billing and financial aid, and residential contracts, etc.
