SCS Wednesday Wire

A weekly update from the SCS Dean’s Office

 

January 20, 2021 
 

With the arrival of the new year, SCS WEDNESDAY WIRE replaces SCS TODAY as I plan to share updates weekly, each Wednesday, and as needed.

SCS NEWS
— New research shows that “smiling eyes” may not signify true happiness or tell how you really feel inside.

— Researchers have started daily nationwide surveys – which Facebook distributes daily to a portion of its users – to determine U.S. acceptance of COVID-19 vaccines and pinpoint where people are most skeptical of the shots. Surveys show that northeast and west coast residents are most likely to accept vaccines.

COMING UP
— Friday, January 22, 1:30 - 2:30 p.m. The SCS Undergraduate Student Advisory Committee will host a students-only event for anyone coming to campus in the spring to have an opportunity to speak with those who were on campus during the fall. The event is open to all SCS students. Click here for the Zoom link

SPRING SEMESTER UPDATE
— While the Pittsburgh campus remains in the Restricted Services posture, it was announced yesterday that the first two weeks of classes this semester will be remote only with in-person classes starting on February 15 (one week later than originally planned). Additionally, if you are not already on an approved return-to-campus plan and need to visit campus, check the SCS Return to Campus page to learn more.

SCS DEI UPDATES
— Regular SCS DEI Updates will resume starting this Friday.

BE SMART  |  STAY SAFE  |  WEAR A MASK  | PLEASE!

Until next week,

All of us share A Tartan’s Responsibility and as members of the CMU community we must do our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19. If you plan to come to campus, you must complete the CMU Self-Assessment Survey. Even if you’re not coming to campus, CMU Community Health & Well-Being strongly encourages daily completion of the survey.
