COVID-19 Update – The health, safety, and well-being of the Harvard community is our top priority. CES has been working hard to support Harvard's efforts to de-densify the campus. Beginning Monday, March 16th, CES will begin working remotely and the building will close to the public.
Special Notice to the CES Community:
On March 10, 2020 Harvard University announced that it will be transitioning to virtual instruction, in an effort to curtail the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the area. As a result, all events at CES have been cancelled effective immediately. Please visit the Harvard University Coronavirus website for regular updates on the university's policies.
Harvard will begin transitioning to virtual instruction for graduate and undergraduate classes. Our goal is to have this transition complete by Monday, March 23, the first day of scheduled classes following Spring Recess.
