Reopening FAQ of the day

How will the AC² (AMP & CSTEP Community) Program adapt to a new campus environment in fall 2020?
As a program of academic support and enrichment for students intending to major in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) fields, AC2 will be well-positioned to provide all tutoring, study group and enrichment activities in either seated or virtual formats depending on guidelines and activity type.
The College's fall 2020 reopening plan is highly detailed and dense, and our corresponding list of FAQs runs to nearly 10,000 words (and counting!). In an effort to make this very important information more digestible for campus community members, we're highlighting questions and answers in this newsletter, one per day, as the fall semester approaches.
Please note: We are working to update and add FAQs as planning continues and this situation evolves. We will prioritize sharing the most current information in this space.
