The health and well-being of our campus community is the University’s top priority. UCR students and employees experiencing respiratory illness (fever, cough, shortness of breath) or flu-like symptoms should call the Student Health Services24/7 hotline for support and guidance: 951-827-3031.
If you are well, be ready to temporarily attend your classes online during this sudden and prolonged campus closure. During this time, it’s critical for us all to take care of ourselves and others. Please ask for the help you need from your instructors and other people on (virtual) campus. Connect with people you care about. Rest. Hydrate. And please remember that your course instructors are almost all teaching online for the first time themselves--we’re all learning how to be teachers and learners in the online space together, so please approach each other with patience and understanding.
During a Campus Closure, Make Sure You:
1. Check Your Course in iLearn Daily
iLearn is the main space for your course communication, so make sure to sign in at least once per day. Use iLearn to message your instructor, access course materials, and turn in assignments.
2. Look to Your Instructor for Further Information
In the case of a campus closure, give your instructor 24-48 hours to make any necessary adjustments. If you don’t hear from your instructor within 48 hours of a campus closure, contact them via email. If you're unable to connect with your instructor, contact XCITE (Exploration Center for Innovative Teaching and Engagement) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Remain Flexible
There may be circumstances where you are unable to make timely progress on part of your work (e.g., no access to power or internet). First, check to see if your instructor has sent you any guidance for these situations via email and iLearn. Communicate with your instructor in a timely manner regarding any needed accommodation. Your instructors care about you and will remain flexible as well.
