Dear Faculty Colleagues: We write to give you more detail on the spring semester schedule to help you plan your spring syllabi.

Faculty from the Schools Abroad in eleven countries will offer remote courses to students in the Middlebury community, since they aren’t able to teach them locally.

I am writing to provide an update about CTO (combined time off) for the remainder of this fiscal year.
The Return to Campus Guide describes Middlebury College’s phased approach to opening our campus for staff, students, and faculty and fulfills a State of Vermont requirement that we publish a return-to-campus plan. It includes the multilayered protective protocols we will operate under for fall 2020, and possibly for the entire 2020–21 academic year. The significant amount of detailed information here is commensurate with the seriousness of the issues before us. We expect you to refer to this guide frequently and thoroughly—and to adhere to every one of its directives.
Key elements of the guide that will require particular attention from the entire campus community include these critical areas: Student Health Pledge, Employee Health Pledge, Prearrival Quarantine, and COVID-19–Related Conduct Policy.
