UVM, Champlain to go to remote classes soon due to coronavirus - Seven Days

Following Middlebury College’s lead, both the University of Vermont and Champlain College will soon go to remote learning only as a result of the coronavirus. Furthermore, the Vermont State College board will meet tomorrow to decide whether to follow suit.

"UVM Medical School students will remain on campus, and classes will continue as scheduled. UVM students are currently on spring break and were due to return to campus on Monday, March 16. Classes on that day and the next are canceled, and remote instruction will begin on March 18, according to a statement from UVM President Suresh Garimella. "This decisive action reflects our commitment to help slow the spread of the virus while also promoting the academic progress of our students and protecting the health and safety of our community," he wrote. The protocol does not apply to UVM's Larner College of Medicine, "which is developing a separate action plan centered on their unique needs." Champlain College is currently on spring break and will extend it until March 23, after which "remote instruction will be in effect for at least three weeks, and students and faculty should expect that a longer period of remote instruction is likely," interim president Laurie Quinn wrote in an email."
