University Classrooms to be Used for Jazz Festival

February 13, 2020

The 2020 Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival will be held Feb. 28-29. In order to host the festival, some university classrooms will be used for student competitions and educational sessions. Those whose classrooms may be impacted have already been contacted by the Registrar’s Office. Some classrooms being used to host the festival will not be available after 5 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 26, and others after 5 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 27. These classrooms will also be used for the festival all day on Friday, Feb. 28. During this timeframe, regular classes may be affected.

Those with classes scheduled in the impacted classrooms will be asked to consider alternatives for delivering their class such as: meeting online; scheduling class at a different time and/or location (following FSH protocol); holding alternative learning activities such as service learning (potentially related to the festival), group projects, field projects or related activities; or volunteering to assist with delivery of the festival.

Please work with your department chairs, and, as needed, your dean’s office, if your class is impacted by the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival to ensure a reasonable accommodation can be found.
