We deeply appreciate the resourcefulness and flexibility shown by all members of the BU community in crafting solutions to these vexing challenges. There are many courses where in-person instruction, participation, or assessment is at the core of your experience. Thankfully, creative solutions have been found to bridge the gap between now and the scheduled end of term. Thank you to everyone for your tremendous efforts to make this happen.
We are taking these extraordinary measures as part of our responsibility to keep our entire community safe while also ensuring that students can complete their terms.
