Dear EP Students,
In light of all the recent emails you have received from the university and its response to COVID-19, we wanted to clarify several Whiting School and EP-specific matters. We truly appreciate your patience and attention to all the messages and communications that have been sent out—we know it can be a lot, but things are moving rapidly. Note that even the policies described below may be superseded by even more restrictions to campus access.

All academic activities for graduate students should transition to remote delivery immediately. Student already enrolled in online courses should proceed as normal. EP students who take face-to-face or virtual live courses should pay close attention to the following:
  • As this week is spring break, your classes will begin online on Monday, March 23, 2020
  • Please be reminded that even if you are around the Homewood campus or APL when classes resume next week, you cannot attend any of your classes in-person. This includes any lab-based courses. All activities will only be held remotely. 
  • Please let your instructors and/or us know immediately if you anticipate (or encounter) any issues with internet access or have any other limitations that may keep you from participating fully in the remote delivery of your courses and other academic activities.

Resources for Support  
This is an uncertain time and it is completely normal if you have questions and concerns. Please don’t hesitate to tap into any of the JHU resources here to assist you. We have also developed a Whiting-specific FAQ page for our community.

We understand the challenges that you may be facing in this unprecedented public health situation and encourage you to also visit for any additional resources that could be of assistance. Please reach out to us with any questions and to each other (virtually) for community and support. Even a quick call/FaceTime/Teams chat can help maintain that vital sense of connection to each other.
Take good care of yourself in this stressful time, and we’ll be in touch again soon.
