As we complete this academic year and move toward our summer activities, we are now able to continue our gradual expansion of on-site work. Plans are being developed in cooperation with the Offices of the Provost and General Council. 

This will begin with faculty in May, and is expected to be available to some staff in June or early July, gradually expanding to include all staff through the summer months, with the goal of being fully operational and ready for students to return before the end of August. Faculty can expect to receive more information via email soon, and Staff will learn more in the upcoming State of the College.
