Wheaton provides a transformative liberal arts education for intellectually curious students in a collaborative, academically vibrant residential community that values a diverse world. As we work to ensure the safety of our community and make temporary adjustments to some of our practices during this pandemic, we must make certain that our modes of instruction honor these commitments.

Our approach will:

  • Follow and operate within CDC as well as state safety precautions and protocols
  • Prioritize student experience and success
  • Leverage our strengths in teaching and mentorship
  • Be accessible for all of our students
  • Provide clarity to both faculty and students
  • Be flexible to respond to the changing needs of our students in an ever-evolving public health landscape
  • Be logistically feasible for Wheaton
