Dear Faculty,

We are continuously fine tuning tools and other resources to help you prepare for online course delivery when classes resume next week. We will continue to provide updates as needed to make sure you are aware of the latest information.

Visit the academic continuity guide often to register for in-person and online support. Please note: The Division of Continuing and International Education is offering scheduled drop-in hours in Allen Hall 202A from Monday, March 16 to Friday, March 20, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., to provide consultations covering the essentials of online teaching. For more information, contact Johnny Orr, Distance Learning Institute assistant director, at Based on the input from the Office of the General Counsel, University Libraries, and the School of Communication, we are providing guidelines and information regarding copyright, online learning, and how to provide instructional materials to students.

Please remember the University's COVID-19 website remains your best source for all University coronavirus-related updates, including the March 14 notice from Human Resources on providing all staff with the opportunity to work remotely if at all possible, especially in light of Miami-Dade and Broward schools closures, and new policies on paid sick time.

The Office of the Provost will be operating with limited in-person staffing and is available via email at and via phone at 305-284-3356. Thank you all again for your commitment and readiness to ensure our students remain connected and learning through this difficult situation.
