Academic Continuity


Continuing Academic Progress When Faced with Disruptive Events 

When meeting face-to-face is not an option, Clemson University’s faculty and students can participate in eLearning through online class sessions as a way to maintain Academic Continuity.

What is Academic Continuity and why do we need to practice?

Academic Continuity refers to the continuation of academic services at Clemson University through eLearning (online modalities) in the event of all or parts of instructional site locations being closed and/or unavailable. 

Clemson University must continue to make a significant investment in its academic continuity program by having more academic continuity exercises. In a real emergency which often occurs with little to no notice, knowing what to do and how best to do it will contribute greatly to our community resiliency and academic recovery.

When is the next Academic Continuity Exercise?

What is the focus of this Academic Continuity Exercise?

The February 19th exercise is to focus on the academic component of continuity and our ability to utilize online tools, methods, and strategies in the event where face-to-face instruction is not possible.

Will campus be closed?

No. Campus will remain business as usual on this day. Only face-to-face instruction will be moved online.
