Event Management System 


We have reserved some rooms for faculty to use for group office hours and/or advising. The following guidelines must be followed regarding testing:

For faculty who wish to hold group office or advising hours:

If you plan to return to campus routinely for group advising or office hours, you will need to enroll in the College’s surveillance testing protocol. Contact Human Resources to get enrolled. You must also schedule a test in HC Clear for your first day back to campus. 

If you plan to return to campus for occasional group advising or office hours, you must schedule a test in HC Clear at the testing center for the day of your scheduled return.

Note on Having Students Return to Campus

Please note that you cannot require or encourage students who are not in the College's COVID-19 surveillance testing program to return to campus. Doing so places them in jeopardy of conduct violations, and creates significant health and safety concerns. Students who are not in the testing protocol cannot join it at any time during the semester
