Law School Plans Hybrid Learning Experience for Fall 2020

June 16, 2020

Dear WCL Community,

Today, President Burwell shared an announcement regarding the Fall 2020 plans for American University, AU Forward. Consistent with this plan, Washington College of Law (WCL) has been developing a plan for WCL instruction and use of our Tenley Campus for Fall 2020 that reflects our mission, commitment, and community values.

WCL is planning a hybrid learning experience for Fall 2020, to provide you with an engaging and inclusive education without disruption.

We hold three imperatives at the center of our planning efforts:

  1. Protecting the health and safety of our community, including students, faculty, and staff;
  2. Ensuring engagement, excellence, and continuity with respect to our core educational mission in ways that will allow us to adapt to any future COVID-related restrictions to campus access; and 
  3. Fostering an environment in which all members of our community can contribute to the best of their abilities, consistent with WCL’s commitment to inclusive excellence.
