College of Education Updates
Poe Hall will be unlocked for all students, faculty, and staff beginning the first day of classes from 7:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. Graduate students can use their university ID to access Poe Hall during after hours. Undergraduate students requiring after-hour access should contact their supervisors or advisors.
Consistent with the university’s Community Standards, please follow these safety guidelines when you are in Poe Hall.
- Do not eat in common areas and shared spaces inside Poe Hall.
- Remain outside of the building unless you have a specific activity to accomplish inside.
- Do not congregate outside or sit in the hallways to avoid impacting the traffic flow.
- Respect the maximum capacity signs for classrooms and conference rooms.
- Do not move furniture within a room or to a different location in Poe Hall.
- Dispose of gloves and masks appropriately.
- Follow all directions provided on monitors and signage. Do not move or remove signage.
Hallways: The traffic pattern on the 2nd floor will flow one-way, counter-clockwise to minimize close contact. On all other floors, remain 6 feet apart and follow additional instructions where posted.
Restrooms: Please stand in line, 6 feet apart, outside the bathroom when occupancy is too great to maintain safe distances inside.
Elevators: Students are encouraged to use the stairs. Preference for elevator usage should be given to those with accessibility or physical needs. Elevator capacity will be limited to 2 at a time. Those waiting for the elevator should stand 6 feet apart.
METRC will reopen to provide site-dependent services including book and equipment circulation and printing. Limited single-use study space will be available; students can remain in METRC for up to one hour. The front doors of METRC will become entrance-only and the back door (facing the double-elevator) will become exit-only. We encourage students to request books versus coming into browse for books. Books and some equipment will be placed in a 72-hour no-touch location upon return; due dates will be adjusted accordingly and fines will not be implemented.
SSAC will open on January 11th and will maintain office hours from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Monday through Friday) with staff rotating shifts to maintain 50% occupancy and to decrease opportunities for exposure if a resident is infected. Students who have a scheduled/confirmed face-to-face appointment with a SSAC staff person must wait in the seating area located in the hall adjacent to the SSAC 505 suite. Upon the time of their scheduled and confirmed meeting, the student must enter the SSAC conference room through the dedicated “Entrance Only” door to the Center. Virtual visits are encouraged to minimize the number of students in the space and points of contact for the staff. There will be no face-to-face appointments scheduled for Wednesdays and Fridays to allow for thorough cleaning procedures*. Masks will be available for students who have a confirmed appointment but are not in possession of their mask.
Technology assistance will be provided to students by contacting The Help Desk via phone (515-1760) or email (email@example.com).
