Menomonie (WQOW) - UW-Stout leadership says students will learn in and outside of the classroom this fall.

In a news release on Monday, the university announced classes will be a mixture of online and face-to-face learning.

In addition to that, a special set of online general education classes will be available for first-year students who do not want to go to campus.

“UW-Stout faculty and staff remain committed to providing a high quality academic experience for our students, ensuring they receive the educational and personal support they need,” said UW-Stout Chancellor Katherine Frank.

Stout has set a goal of having 50% of classes in person.

To achieve social distancing, some classes may have half the students in the classroom and half online, alternating each class period. In other cases, a full class might be spread out over two rooms, with the professor rotating between rooms. Some classes will meet in full in large spaces that will allow students to sit apart, such as Harvey Hall Theatre.
