In April, President Hanno charged the Reopening Task Force with developing policy, protocol, and procedures for preparing the college for the return of students in Fall 2020, in line with public health guidance and recommendations provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Massachusetts Department of Public Health. As the guidance and developments of COVID-19 evolve, the Task Force will continue to keep the community updated on its impact and changes to operations and procedures at Wheaton.


Current status
Wheaton’s academic schedule is currently in Summer Session 2, which was moved to remote course instruction and student operations. A phased return of staff began on June 15 and included essential service and operations staff beginning preparations for the fall semester, with classes scheduled to start on August 24.
