Spring Quarter

Find resources and tools to help you deliver your Spring Quarter classes online.

Spring Quarter classes are now online

The decision has been made to delay the start of Spring Quarter to April 6, 2020 for all schools except Law, the School of Medicine MD and MSPA Programs and the GSB who will keep to their original dates. Additionally, the entire quarter of instruction will be delivered online.  Instructors should prepare to teach from home for the duration of Spring Quarter, depending on when the shelter in place order ends.

While the various support organizations continue to develop tools and resources to guide you through this transition, we offer this starting point to help you begin your planning.
