Make Your Spring 2022 Courses Successful

This post was updated January 4, 2022

The Duke administration decided that classes will be online until January 18 in order to reduce the spread of COVID. Given that the new variant of COVID is highly transmissible, instructors should be prepared for students absences and perhaps a longer time online. To stay informed, check Duke’s Covid-19 page for the latest news.
