  • Remote Instruction & Large Gatherings

    On Thursday, March 19, the College will transition fully to remote instruction. This means that all course work must be done remotely. Our faculty is working incredibly hard to find solutions for providing the educational experience MMC is known for in a safe, healthy environment while adapting to the current global circumstances. Faculty are developing plans for remote teaching and will be communicating with students about how this will happen in their specific classes.

    In alignment with our shift to remote instruction, the College will also begin implementing a policy prohibiting large gatherings of 25 or more people in any campus buildings as of Thursday, March 19 and continuing until the end of the spring semester. More details regarding specific plans for rescheduling events or performances at a future date will be communicated as details are confirmed.

  • Building Access

    In his NYS on Pause executive order, Governor Cuomo announced that “all workers in non-essential businesses across New York state are required to stay home in an effort to combat the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.” In accordance with this guidance, only essential employees will be allowed into main campus buildings starting Sunday, March 22 at 8:00pm. Faculty and staff who have not been designated essential staff should not access their offices beyond March 22.

    To further limit the number of people on campus, the library will be completely closed starting tomorrow, Saturday, March 21, 2020. Any students who rely on the library for technology or Internet access necessary for remote instruction should email studentaffairs@mmm.edu  with information about your needs.

  • Off-Campus Teaching Locations

    Ballet Hispanico, MMAC, and Pearl Studios are closed to student access as of Thursday, March 12.

    Martha Graham Studios and York Theatre are closed to student access as of Thursday, March 19.

    Students who are enrolled in courses of study at our formalized consortiums at other institutions (including ICP, Pace, Hunter, etc.) are subject to the policies of those individual institutions.

We will provide instruction on how to retrieve items left behind as soon as plans are finalized.
    • The no guest policy remains in effect to protect the health and safety of our students, as well as their families. Families will be able to meet their students at the entrance of the building to help move any items, but only residential students will be allowed access to the rooms

Resources for Remote Instruction

  • Blackboard Resources

    Many of your instructors will be using Blackboard to hold remote classes. Please use the links below for instructions on logging into Blackboard Learn and the Blackboard App.

  • Zoom Resources

    Many professors will begin to use Zoom, a live web conferencing tool, to conduct online classes. Zoom allows instructors to hold classes virtually with many people at the same time from any physical location. 

    Your professors may also use Zoom for things like hosting a remote guest speaker, having class discussions, and enabling student presentations.

  • Free Internet Options

    In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, nearly 80 broadband and telephone services providers and commissions have signed on to what it’s calling the “Keep Americans Connected Pledge.” The agreement is aimed at ensuring residents and small businesses don’t lose broadband and phone service during the current pandemic, which has led to many service and employment disruptions.

    Check out this article for a list of companies (major providers, as well as local and regional companies) who have committed to fulfilling the pledge. These providers service a variety of regions and may not all be relevant.

    Please note that you are responsible for contacting individual providers yourself. The College is permitted to call on behalf of any student, faculty, or staff member.
