Research and Creative Inquiry
Brandeis is scaling up its research activities in a careful and gradual three-phase process consistent with our commitment to campus health and safety. This includes separate plans for scaling up research in the sciences and creative arts activities.
Please note that as of Nov. 23, due to an increase in positive COVID-19 cases in some of the science complex buildings, Brandeis is ramping down to Phase 1b. This means the number of people allowed in labs (including principal investigators, graduate students, postdocs, undergraduate students, and other technical staff) has been reduced to one-third the usual density. Any researcher who can continue to work remotely will be required to do so. This ramping down only applies to science labs, not the library or art studios.
Teaching in the Fall Semester
Brandeis is following a hybrid teaching and learning model. Classes are being conducted either primarily in person, remotely or through a combination of both approaches.
The instruction options offered are highly adaptable to the needs of students, whatever their individual circumstances might be. Faculty who are teaching in person must be prepared to move their course online should the public health need arise. Faculty who are teaching in person also need to be able to accommodate students who may need to go into quarantine or isolation due to COVID-19.
