A Progressive Return to In-Person Learning: The Graduate Center Announces Fall Plans

Graduate Center leaders today shared with students, faculty, and staff details about plans for fall classes, public programs, and on-site work and research.

“After more than a year of remote classes and operations, we look forward to a progressive and safe return to in-person learning, study, and work this fall,” they wrote in the fist issue of the bi-weekly GC Forward newsletter.

“Our primary goal for the fall is to welcome students back to The Graduate Center. We are making plans for the return of in-person instruction and expanded access to lab spaces,” wrote President Robin L. Garrell, Interim Provost and Senior Vice President Julia Wrigley, and Senior Vice President Brian A. Peterson.

Specifically, plans are underway for each doctoral and master’s program to offer at least two classes that are either in-person or hybrid (a mix of in-person and online). Importantly, all international students will be able to come to New York. Most classes will be kept small to allow for physical distancing. Larger classes may be offered in bigger spaces.

In-person public programs will not resume in the fall.

More information is forthcoming on the anticipated partial return to in-person work this fall.

The newsletter also offered details on student use of space, access to student services, and planning for on-campus work for staff and faculty.
