Dear Duke Chemistry Students:
We recognize the high level of stress and uncertainty brought on by the constantly shifting circumstances of the Covid pandemic. Please know your faculty and staff in Chemistry have been working diligently to develop an academic plan that considers the disruptive changes and tries to accommodate students in so many different situations. We cannot solve everything, but we are doing our best! The nature of the pandemic means that in many cases, faculty learn of new policy changes the same time students do, so please bear with us as we respond to the shifting landscape.
We have made several substantive changes to our course offerings this Fall that we want you to know about. These include:
We hope these explanations answer some of your questions. If you do not find answers to your situation, we encourage you to contact your academic advisor or academic dean for further guidance, or email your query to firstname.lastname@example.org.
