A Hybrid Fall 2020 Semester
Ready to Learn and Ready to Pivot
What does a hybrid Fall mean? It means that UNM is offering a mixture of ways for students to take classes and benefit from support services. There are entirely remote classes accessible via UNM's learning management system UNMLearn, entirely face-to-face classes offered in UNM classrooms, and classes that are partly remote and partly face-to-face. A hybrid Fall makes it possible to reduce the total number of people on our campuses at any given time.
This reduction allows social distancing and wise public health precautions to address COVID-19. We know that many of our students thrive when they have personal contact with faculty and support staff, so we don't want to eliminate all in-person learning and activities.
A hybrid Fall makes it possible for students to have an engaging educational experience in a safe environment. Although this may change as we complete scheduling and monitor health conditions in the region, about 2/3 of UNM Main campus classes are currently planned as entirely remote classes. Our hybrid planning also makes it possible for UNM to pivot rapidly to address changing health conditions in the State of New Mexico.
