No In-Person Internships, Labs or Practica
As of Friday, March 20, all face-to-face instruction for the remainder of the academic year has been suspended. This includes all internships, labs and practica that require face-to-face contact. Students may still enroll for course credits if their work in these programs can be completed in a non-face-to-face format. Please reach out to your department chair or program director for further guidance.
Work Remotely – EWU will remain open, not in suspended operations.
As of April 2, Washington’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order has been extended until May 4. The directive requires Washingtonians to stay at home except for essential activities. In keeping with the governor’s directive, all faculty and staff who are able to telework must do so. While the governor’s current order will remain in place until midnight, May 4, employees should be prepared for possible extensions to the timeline. More: Telework Resources
Classes Will Resume April 6
EWU will delay the start of spring quarter by one week to Monday, April 6. This will allow our students, faculty and staff more time to prepare for the start of the term and increase opportunities to “flatten the curve.” We will be sharing a reduced academic calendar including a plan for finals very soon. Spring semester will also resume April 6, though some semester programs are resuming online coursework as early as March 23. Please consult with your departments for further details.
