The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences cares deeply about the health and academic progress of our students, as well as the safety of our faculty, staff and their families. We are committed to supporting the SEAS community during this transition to online learning while working together to take the necessary precautions to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
For campus-wide updates, visit the UB COVID-19 Information site.
In addition to the information being distributed out of the Office of the Provost and Center for Educational Innovation, our Office of Digital and Online Education and SENS are here to support the SEAS community.
Please use the template below to provide on-campus students, faculty and staff with information, instructions and office hours for your office. Once completed, feel free to print and post where appropriate. In addition, please upload your file to the UBBox folder below so that it can be included in the SEAS Safe Start Status page, a web-based database of research lab and office space information.
If you have questions about department announcements or the SEAS Safe Start Status page, contact Holly Evert.
Although it is highly encouraged, we are not requiring all videos in UBLearns to be captioned during this time if you don't have the resources. Videos need to be captioned when an instructor has a student in their class that requires captioning because of a disability.
If you are creating Panopto™ recordings and wish to discourage file sharing, please review the settings and restrict permissions (no podcast downloading) accordingly. If you have questions, reach out to Lisa Stephens, Jim Michalowski or firstname.lastname@example.org.
