Yes. Students, employees and visitors within college-owned or leased spaces and on college property may be asked to leave if they do not adhere to any required health and safety rules we have established.

We are committed to cleaning and sanitizing all university spaces to minimize the ability of the virus to spread. Our Facilities and Physical Plant Operations team has developed rigorous sanitation procedures and processes.

This will allow for better ability of students to clearly hear the instructor and reduce fatigue on the instructors when speaking for long periods of time. If a student is hearing impaired and must visually see the instructor speak, the instructor must return to the designated lecture area and remove their mask, while maintaining social distancing.
