Following New York City’s lead, Bank Street College has closed its building and programs on 112th Street through summer. During this time, classes and conference groups will be held online. Resources for students, including online learning tools and information about contacting student services, is below.
Our primary concern is making sure that everyone in our community is safe, healthy, and supported to the extent that we possibly can. We ask that you contact Gretchen Adams at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-875-4461 if you think you may have been exposed to, or test positive for, COVID-19.
If you find yourself feeling anxious or in need of additional support, you can reach out to Peggy McNamara, email@example.com, who can help refer you to counseling services.
Notes on Summer 1 and Summer 2 Terms
Course meetings will be held via Zoom. The courses will maintain the days and times that were described in the catalog but the sessions will be shorter. On average, synchronous sessions will last no longer than 1.5 to 2 hours depending on the course, though there may be some variations. Most classes will start the synchronous meeting at the scheduled start time. The Zoom link for each meeting will be available in the Canvas space for the course. Please, make sure you regularly check your course in Canvas for updated information from your instructor.
Class meetings will be complemented with asynchronous and out-of-class activities to fulfill the requirements of the course. These activities may be individual, in small groups, or in pairs. You will need to assign times outside of the meeting times to do these activities (3-4 hours weekly of classwork apart from the time for readings and assignments) that may involve meeting virtually with other students in small groups and/or with your instructor.
