Dear Colleagues,

As we prepare for the start of the semester, we know there are many questions arising among our instructors about what to expect and how to handle COVID-19 related events. You will find an Instructor FAQ posted online that provides answers to many questions we’ve been fielding this month.

The questions are particularly relevant to our instructors teaching in-person classes. However, we think all instructors and academic support staff will benefit, since many of you may hear questions from students or colleagues. We’ve tried to keep the document brief while providing detailed information, instructions, and important links for you and your students.

Please spend time with this document. We hope the information and recommended actions will help you and your students navigate these novel and unfamiliar times. We understand that your class or circumstance may have unique considerations not addressed in this document. Should that be the case, please contact your Dean or Adam Jussel, Dean of Students.

As always, I’m grateful for everyone’s commitment and flexibility in preparing for this new academic year. And, I know that your compassion, caring, and flexibility with our students will demonstrate the values of the UWM Panther community.

Take care,


Johannes Britz
Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs
