An Update Regarding Winter 2022

The Government of New Brunswick has announced that as of December 27, 2021, the entire province will function in accordance with Level 2 of its COVID-19 Winter 2022 Management Plan. In the published guidelines for this level, the Provincial Government does not restrict face-to-face instruction in high schools, colleges, and universities.

As the University seeks to minimize the COVID-19 exposure risk for students and employees, except for a few MM cohorts, most graduate-level students have already been informed that their courses will meet online during the Winter 2022 semester. However, because of the unique learning needs of undergraduate students, the nature of instruction required for some programs, and following consultation with Provincial officials, the University plans to facilitate face-to-face learning as much as possible for the Winter semester. This means that, as of this date – assuming the province continues to function within Level 2 guidelines by the scheduled start of the Winter semester – all undergraduate classes will meet face-to-face as originally scheduled.

If the Government determines at a later date that the Province needs to function at Level 3, or if they determine that education delivery must transition to online formats, the University will release alternate plans for delivering courses. The University is prepared to pivot quickly to online course delivery or a blended model of online instruction and face-to-face instruction for courses with appropriate physical distancing and monitoring in place if it is required by the government.

Regardless of the format of instruction during the Winter Semester, the residences at Crandall University will be open for student occupancy as scheduled. Colburne House access will be limited to residents of Colburne House. Mitton Court access will be limited to Mitton Court residents and their guests from Colburne House. All student interaction in campus housing and off campus is expected to be in compliance with the COVID-19 Winter 2022 Management Plan, which for Level 2 means a “Steady 10.”

“We want to thank everyone in the Crandall community for their resilience as we continue to navigate the pandemic,” said Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Jon Ohlhauser, who also serves as chair of Crandall’s COVID-19 Advisory Group. “We know that uncertainty about changing restrictions can be a source of stress for many, and we encourage everyone to take advantage of available supports as we approach the winter semester.”

Students and employees are reminded to monitor their university email accounts for the most up-to-date information regarding Crandall’s COVID-19 response. Anyone who is travelling over the holidays is also advised to familiarize themselves with federal and provincial travel advisories and requirements as needed.
