Important message re: COVID-19 from Associate Dean Sevilla

Dear Heavener students –

As you are aware, COVID-19 has prompted UF to move all classes online through March 30 (http://www.ufl.edu/health-updates/). This message is intended to provide you with specific guidance on the Heavener School’s action plan for all class activity, advising, and student activities here in HSB, effective Monday March 16 through at least March 30.

  1. Classes: all classes will be delivered online, effective 3/16. For EP courses, you will not have the option of attending the live session. Faculty will teach their course to empty classrooms.
  2. Advising: all academic, career and study abroad advising appointments will be conducted via Zoom (or similar), phone or email. This includes all advanced registration advising. You will not have the option of coming to visit with a Heavener advisor or team member in person. More details on advanced registration advising will be coming soon in a separate email.
  3. Student Activities: all CLP, BCS, BCC and student organization activities will be suspended or conducted remotely. No UF associated programs or activities will host in-person activities or meetings during this time. In accordance with UF strategy, student travel for university related activities must be suspended (e.g., student organization professional development trips). We do fully encourage and support zoom meetings.

To support these measures, the 3rd floor of Heavener Hall and all classrooms in Heavener Hall will be closed to students from March 16-30.  You will have access to breakout rooms and common gathering space. We highly encourage the recommended 6ft social distancing at all times in all spaces in Heavener (and in all of your daily activities).

This is an unprecedented event, and we will continue to do all we can to deliver a high quality academic experience, while also maximizing your safety and the safety of the UF community.
