Dear ,

We need your input!

We’re writing as a follow up to President Paxson’s May 6 letter to request your feedback and preferences on different scenarios that the University is exploring for the 2020-21 academic year.

This survey presents three possible scenarios for the coming school year that have been designed to ensure that we can safeguard the health of our community while maintaining Brown’s high standards of teaching and learning. Each of the scenarios involves transitioning a large number of courses to online/remote/hybrid instruction, and we are investing significant time and resources to ensure that these courses are delivered in the highest quality possible. The likelihood of each scenario depends on how the COVID-19 pandemic evolves in the coming months, and the University’s ability to bring students safely to campus.

We value your input on each of these scenarios and, understanding the uncertainty that remains, will use the results from this to inform our planning. Please know that regardless of the scenario that we end up choosing for next year, the University is committed to supporting your success during these challenging times.

Thank you for participating in this survey. Your input is essential for helping the University plan for an academic year that best meets the interests of Brown students.
