Classroom guidance now online for faculty to manage COVID-19 concerns

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State faculty interested in learning about the support available to them for classroom management during the pandemic should consult the Classroom Guidance for Instructors document, posted on the website for the Office of Student Conduct.

The document describes the steps that faculty can take to provide a positive learning environment and manage COVID-19-related concerns in the classroom. The guidance includes a sample statement for faculty to include in their course syllabi and a series of steps that faculty can take if a student fails to adhere to health and safety requirements.

Students who fail to comply with requirements will be referred to the Office of Student Conduct and will not be allowed to return until the matter is addressed through Penn State’s conduct process.
