Why this petition matters

Started by Jane Doe

As the coronavirus has spread and mutated across time, many colleges and universities have demonstrated compassion and care for student health by offering remote class options. While remote learning can be mentally and emotionally taxing, this option provides peace for students concerned about the spread of COVID-19. In the summer of 2021, this option was taken away from Wheaton students, requiring all students to become full-time, in-person students. This change was not well communicated to students, and was a shocking change for students who are classified as “at-risk” for international students who had been sheltered in place, and for students who otherwise expressed concern for returning to in-person classes. With the new variant spreading and confirmed case numbers rising, this petition is asking Wheaton to reconsider its stance on remote learning and allow students the option to take classes remotely.
