Life Sciences and Biochemistry Students, 

First, I want to thank you all for your patience and endurance during these last few months and hope that you have remained safe and healthy during these difficult circumstances. I have heard from many of your professors who were all extremely impressed with your ability to adapt to the challenges associated with the end of winter term. As you will now know the University, after careful consideration and on the advice of Public Health Officials, has announced that undergraduate classes for the Faculty of Arts and Sciences will be delivered remotely for all students in the Fall of 2020. 

Despite the fact that circumstances are evolving rapidly, we have been preparing for this scenario for some time and are confident that we will be able to offer the necessary course requirements for both the Life Sciences and Biochemistry Programs remotely. While I’m sure you are disappointed with this news, we are here to support you and will be posting details on course offerings, including virtual laboratories, well in advance of registration on our website. In addition, please continue to read our weekly updates for more information. 

I am reaffirming that we are here for you and are making every effort to ensure that your academic experience is the best possible. For more information, updates, and FAQs please visit our Fall 2020 page.

Dr. Winn
