Reminder: Students in the Community for Internships, Service-Learning, Community-Based Experiences during COVID
Please be reminded that if students are in the community for internships, service-learning, or other community-based experiences, a number of requirements must be followed to ensure safety. SUNY has provided guidance for community-based experiences during COVID-19, strongly recommending that remote projects and experiences be developed for all courses that incorporate experiences that normally take students into the community. There are many opportunities for remote projects and experiences that can be mutually beneficial while considering the health and safety of our students and vulnerable community members, including resource development, remote delivery, and research-based activities. We encourage you to transition these experiences to remote activities rather than cancel your community partnerships.
If students continue to be placed in the community, a faculty checklist has been developed to ensure that a number of requirements are followed to safeguard the health and safety of students and community members during in-person, on-site experiences (not for remote experiences). Please contact Laura Hill Rao, director of civic and community engagement, with questions or concerns.
