Preparedness is not limited to the emergency response community. Academic instructors should take steps to ensure that you are personally prepared for emergencies and disasters, both at work and home. Review our Emergency Preparedness for Instructors guide (PDF document) to understand your important role in evacuations, medical emergencies, and other disruptive situations.
Academic continuity is critical to the mission of the University. To assist faculty members in maintaining instructional continuity, an Academic Continuity Planning guide (PDF document) provides suggestions on how to best be prepared.
If circumstances require a temporary interruption of face-to-face instruction, faculty may need to use alternative methods and tools to continue class activities remotely. Class activities will depend on the subject and teaching methods. The Cornell Center for Teaching Innovation provides planning, strategies, and tools to help faculty rapidly shift to an online learning environment.
