Graduate Student Update

March 18, 2020

From Susan Fournier, Allen Questrom Professor & Dean

Dear Questrom Graduate Student Community, 

We write to respond to your requests for clarification regarding recent announcements:

  1. If you are a resident in a BU apartment you are not required to vacate your residence at this time as these housing arrangements are through the BU Leasing Office and not residence life.Should this situation change for any reason, the Leasing Office will be in direct contact with you.
  2. We understand that the new mandate to teach remotely for the remainder of the term, as well as the decision to reduce the on-campus presence of non-essential services, is incredibly disruptive. We also recognize that for many of you working full-time or part-time, you may be facing your own work challenges that are contributing to your stress. Faculty will be flexible and accommodating in helping you adjust, including attendance policies, class participation, and assessments. Please be in touch with your instructor if you are facing challenges.

  3. We are aware of the time that it is taking for class videos to be uploaded to QuestromTools.  Please be patient as we (and others across the world) work on this bandwidth problem relating to the ZOOM platform.

  4. There have been no decisions made regarding how grading will be handled this semester; please stay tuned.
