Across Johns Hopkins University, planning for the resumption of academic activities is well under way. At Peabody, we have assembled a task force comprised of 25 faculty, staff, and students drawn from across the Conservatory to provide critical input to this planning.
This process includes developing flexible instructional models under which Peabody will be able to operate and meet our mission at the highest possible level in the coming academic year and, at the same time, remain responsive to a still-evolving public health situation. This is a complex challenge that recognizes both the critical nature of the on-campus experience for students of the performing arts and the significant risks posed by the ongoing public health threat.
Peabody’s planning process, like the University’s, is informed primarily by two essential values: ensuring the safety, health, and security of the entire community – faculty, staff, and students – and delivering the highest level educational experience for our students. We remain fully committed to delivering a high-quality Conservatory experience in the coming academic year, and look forward to sharing our plans and decisions in the coming weeks.
