News & Notes
Colleagues, welcome back for the spring semester. As I am certain you are aware, on January 8th, the
Rhode Island Department of Health and CDC declared flu widespread in the state. URI will be issuing a FLU ALERT encouraging all students, faculty, and staff who had not been vaccinated this year to seek vaccination prior to returning for classes.
As new semester approaches, I want to remind faculty of the following policy regarding students participating in University-sanctioned events
As you all know, your course syllabus is an important document that communicates mutual expectations between you and your students, including your course expectations, learning outcomes, deadlines, attendance policies, grading criteria, and other important information.
As you prepare for the start of the new semester, I would like to call your attention to several important dates listed below.
