Planning Groups

The following working groups are charged with making recommendations to President Smith and her senior staff to inform her decisions on how to move forward with the 2020-21 academic year.  While each group has a specific charge, the College remains guided the following overarching principles:

  • We will hold paramount the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff members.
  • We will continue to deliver to our students the highly engaged, intellectually enriching educational experience that is foundational to all that we as a College do. 
  • We will make decisions about College finances and operations with empathy, compassion, and humanity and work to maintain operational continuity and retain employees to the greatest extent possible.


The work of the Academic Continuity Group and the initial COVID-19 Planning Group has concluded.
