Academic Continuity

With Novel Influenza A (H1N1) cases continuing to occur in communities throughout Wisconsin, it is anticipated that UWM will continue to be affected by the outbreak this fall and winter. We are continuing to monitor the situation and plan for various contingencies, including the possibility of significant student, faculty and staff absenteeism during the fall term and appropriate campus responses should that occur. Keep in mind that, per guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, if a student is ill with flu-like symptoms, s/he should not come to the university. Depending on levels of H1N1-related absenteeism, there may be a need during the course of the semester to modify course assessment strategies (e.g., quizzes, paper due dates, examinations) and class attendance policies. Faculty are encouraged to discuss flexible response strategies to student absences with their department chairs, and to develop backup plans if they themselves should become ill.
