Fall 2020 Semester

May. 01, 2020

As we approach the end of the spring semester, the COVID-19 Task Force, in consultation with the president and her cabinet, is working diligently within the ambiguity of the COVID-19 pandemic to anticipate and plan for the immediate future. At this time, Agnes Scott is planning to resume on-campus instruction, operations, and residential experience for the fall 2020 semester. 


We will be prepared to make any necessary adjustments for safety and learning and pivot to other options, in the event the situation does not allow a safe return for our faculty, staff, and students. Our planning scenarios include options for in-person learning, for substantive and well-designed remote learning modules, as well as a combination of the two. As we collect and analyze the information we will adapt these plans in alignment with public health guidelines and safety recommendations. Preserving the health and well-being of the Agnes Scott community will remain at the forefront of any decision making, with recommended health and safety measures in place.


Given the uncertainty about the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), and how it will continue to impact us as a community, it is challenging to provide more definitive answers at this time. We will continue to keep you apprised of the latest developments over the next few weeks and throughout the summer, as we gather the most up-to-date information from public health officials, and consider all of our options.  


Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this uncharted world of COVID-19 together. 


Ken England and Karen Goff, on behalf of the President’s COVID-19 Task Force
