Dear CU Boulder Faculty,

As you know, in response to the current situation we are facing with the COVID-19 virus, this morning Chancellor Phil DiStefano instructed us to begin teaching all classes remotely beginning Monday, March 16. Also today, Provost Russ Moore provided us with a guide for transitioning to remote teaching

These necessary and important actions support the state of Colorado and national initiatives to combat this dangerous virus. In these circumstances, and in as much as the faculty own the curriculum, the Boulder Faculty Assembly encourages all academic units to meet with their faculty to determine what alternative teaching strategies and mechanisms are most appropriate to each unit’s faculty.

As information reaches us, we will continue to update you.


Bob Ferry, BFA Chair
