Congratulations on making it through the spring semester! I know it was not an easy one. I hope you are able to take some well deserved time for yourself in the upcoming weeks.

I shared this video message with all of you earlier this week—I’m sharing it again here in case you missed it (this link might also be easier to open):

Below are some new updates and reminders. Please remember that we—faculty and staff—are here for you, and please reach out to us if you need anything. Past Student Briefings can always be found on the Herberger Institute home page here.

UPDATE Summer career programming coming direct to you
This summer, Creative Career Services is offering a wide variety of summer programs to help you become internship ready, prepare for interviews, connect with industry leaders, and have meaningful conversations about what it means to be an artist or designer in this digital age.

Launching Assembly Required
 
Artists, designers and creative innovators are building our future world. Assembly Required brings together strategies for being a professional creative with approaches to new ways of working in art and design today. It is a platform of tangible skill sets for successful creative careers that connects the experiences of field leaders with future innovators.

Why do we need your voice to be part of these conversations? To learn about and contribute to creating space for new ways of thinking, emerging ideas and innovative pathbreakers, supporting your continued professional development no matter what level of expertise or starting place. The program will launch in May 2020 with a series of conversations on Creative Resilience with experienced leaders, recent graduates and field disruptors who are reshaping the future of art and design fields in the face of great uncertainty.

Exploring Creative Identity and Acts of Persistence
Date/Time: Friday, May 22 at 11 a.m. (AZ Time)
Register Here (You will be sent a Zoom link.)
How does your creative identity support your journey as an artist, designer, activist and community member? And how does your unique identity support your own persistence in how you approach challenges, solutions and questions? Join an interdisciplinary panel that spans choral music to photography to theatre to composition to discuss how your unique identity influences your work and your creative persistence.
Panelists: Miguel Felipe, Elaine Kessler, Bobb Cooper and Daniel Bernard Roumain

When Public Space Becomes Risky Space
Date/Time: Friday, May 22, 1 p.m. - 2 p.m. (AZ time)
Zoom: https://asu.zoom.us/j/95078791908
Public space is one of the primary platforms connecting people to art and design. Yet shelter in place measures are taking people away from experiencing the public art, parks and creative infrastructure projects in their city in the same ways they did before. Crises have previously created innovations in stewardship of public space; for example, tactical urbanism was born out of the 2009 financial crisis to repurpose suddenly abandoned spaces for public use as parklets or rotating small business platforms. Responding to this moment, what will be the lessons for the future of art and design in public space? What new models for community gathering and exchange can we build? How can we restructure our public spaces as more equitable and respond to pressing challenges facing communities?
Panelists: Wanda Dalla Costa, Carrie Christensen and Sadiya Muqueeth

Herberger Institute Student Briefing

April 22, 2020

Students:

Below are some new updates and reminders. Please remember that we—faculty and staff—are here for you, and please reach out to us if you need anything.

UPDATES

UPDATE An explanation of the ‘Y’ grade

  • What does the ‘Y’ grade mean?

The grade denotes satisfactory completion or passing a course.

  • Do all classes have the option of the ‘Y’ grade?

Many, but not all, courses have the option. Ask the instructor if it is an option and if they would consider it, if yes.

  • If the instructor offers the ‘Y’ in a course, can I still get a letter grade?

Yes, you may still choose to receive a letter grade even if other students choose to receive the ‘Y.’

  • Can the ‘Y grade fulfill a required course that requires a ‘C’ or better?

Yes, this will satisfy a degree requirement that requires the ‘C’ or better.

  • Can a ‘Y’ grade fulfill a prerequisite requirement that is seeking a ‘C’ or better?

Yes. You will be able to register for a class that requires a ‘C’ or better in a prerequisite.

  • How will a ‘Y’ grade affect my GPA?

The ‘Y’ has no effect on the GPA but you do receive the credit hours toward your degree.

  • Will the ‘Y’ have a negative effect on my financial aid or scholarships?

No, the ‘Y’ will be treated as follows for financial aid and scholarships:

    • Obama/CAG/NAMU Scholarship Recipients
      • Passing grades (‘P’ or ‘Y’) count toward credit hour renewal.
      • Failing does not count toward credit hour renewal.
    • Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) measurement
      • Passing grades will count as attempted and earned hours for the purposes of pace rate and max hours calculation.
      • ’P’ or ‘Y’ will be excluded from the GPA measurement.

UPDATE 2020 Spring commencement
Considerable effort is being made to make the upcoming virtual graduation ceremonies a memorable experience in acknowledgement of this incredible milestone.

All students that have applied to graduate for Spring or Summer 2020 will be included in the Spring 2020 virtual ceremony regardless of whether or not they had indicated they would be attending the in-person ceremonies. If you did not RSVP for graduation on your MyASU page before 4/2/2020, you no longer need to do this. The RSVP function on MyASU was deactivated when the university made the switch to virtual ceremony planning.

Graduates are also invited to return and walk in the December 2020 or May 2021 in-person ceremonies. Your information will automatically be entered into the system for these ceremonies. Messaging to RSVP will be sent to students beginning in mid-October for the December ceremonies and mid-March for the May ceremonies.

There have been multiple requests sent out for student participation in the upcoming May online ceremonies. Participation in these requests is NOT required for inclusion in the ceremony. We would love to have your submissions in any of the following formats. It is up to you how you would like to engage and how personalized you want your experience to be.

  • The university is requesting that students submit a photo, a personal message and a 10-second “Thank You” video. ASU Graduation filters for Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest have been created and will be available this week. If you have not received your cap and gown yet, we encourage you to use these filters in your photos. The photo and message will be included in your individual recognition slide as part of the ceremony. Your "Thank You" clip will be added to a personalized commencement video clip that you will receive after the ceremonies. Please submit this information through the individualized link you received via email. All university requested submissions must be in by 11:59 p.m. on Monday, April 27.

  • Herberger Institute is asking students to submit Reflection videos sharing their experiences at ASU, particularly your experiences this semester. We would also like photos of your senior projects. Submissions will be vetted and used as content during the Herberger Institute convocation ceremony. There is no set deadline to submit this information, but the sooner you submit, the more likely your content will be considered for inclusion. You may submit your Reflection video and senior project photos by filling out the online form.

The University Commencement will go live on Monday, May 11.
The Herberger Institute Convocation will go live on Tuesday, May 12.
If you have any other questions please visit https://graduation.asu.edu/ceremonies/faq and https://herbergerinstitute.asu.edu/graduation for the most up-to-date information.
If you still have questions, please email HerbergerGraduation@asu.edu.

However, residents currently living on-campus as of April 16, 2020 will have the opportunity to complete an application for 2020 Summer Housing soon. This briefing will be updated when students can apply for summer housing. To qualify for 2020 Summer Housing, students will also need to register for classes during the Summer and Fall 2020 semesters. If you currently live on campus and are interested in summer housing, but cannot register for Summer and/or Fall 2020 classes, or you know of students who are housing insecure and need resources for housing, please share this with our “community that cares” team: herbergerinstitute.asu.edu/caring. We will work with you or the student you submit regarding housing resources.

Out-of-state students who left their belongings need to retrieve them by May 10 or as soon as local, state, national or international circumstances allow. If you are an out-of-state student and cannot move by the May 10 deadline due to your local conditions, contact ASU Housing by emailing Housing@asu.edu or calling 480-965-3515 to confirm your situation. Students can use third-party vendors to move belongings.The process and details for using a third-party vendor can be found at the University Housing FAQ page.

Herberger Institute Student Briefing

March 31, 2020

Students:
As you know, yesterday Governor Ducey issued a Stay At Home Executive Order. This order encourages Arizonans to practice physical distancing and except for essential activities to remain home whenever possible. The order goes into effect at 5 p.m. today and is effective through April, 30, 2020.

ASU, as an academic institution, will continue to maintain operations for its education and research mission. Faculty will continue to have access to their offices and labs for educational and research activities. Specific university-wide updates related to this order are here.

The Herberger Institute has made some minor changes to facilitate the new situation.

UPDATES

UPDATE Effective 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 31, all Herberger Institute computer labs will be closed and locked for access. Additionally, by 5 p.m. Friday, April 3, Herberger Institute buildings will be locked and secured for faculty and staff SunCard access only. If you are a student who has materials, projects or personal possessions in a HIDA building, we are asking that you work with your school leadership to secure your items and remove them by 5 p.m., Friday, April 3. If you are unable to retrieve your items by Friday, please contact your school director and we can work with you to arrange for securing your items.

UPDATE Reporting significant illness or confirmation of COVID-19
We are here to support you, and your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us. If you are significantly ill, or have been confirmed to have COVID-19, or are living with someone who has, there are a variety of resources to assist you. If able, please submit your information to herbergerinstitute.asu.edu/caring. If you are unable to submit your own information, someone (friend, family member, faculty member, etc.) may submit information on your behalf. The dean’s office team will reach out to you with additional resources as needed as well as inform the appropriate university offices to assist you with absence notifications, health services resources, and more.

UPDATE Laptops for students
Laptops and hot spots are available to students. The library is the access point, and they will be shipped if the student is out of town. More information is here: https://lib.asu.edu/laptops-and-hotspots

UPDATE ASU statement on refunds
We understand that along with the health and well-being concerns caused by the coronavirus COVID-19, an increasing worry for people is the economic disruption and financial impact of this public emergency. ASU’s top priority right now is the health and well-being of our students. While we are not giving out refunds at this time, as things stabilize with COVID-19, we will be looking into potential accommodations for services that may have gone unused by students, such as meal plans. We understand your concerns and appreciate your patience as we work through these issues.

UPDATE Grading
ASU will not be moving to pass/fail grading. Look for details at the end of the Student section in the FAQ.

UPDATE For thesis and dissertation defenses
The Graduate College is not requiring defenses be recorded. They do suggest using the “waiting room” or “break out room” features for committee deliberations so they can remain confidential. Anyone with Zoom conferencing questions should review the Zoom Video Tutorials as well as tutorials on Using the Waiting Room. Please contact your faculty member for more detailed instructions.

Herberger Institute Student Briefing

March 26, 2020

Students:
In the last week, I’ve been cheered and inspired by the generosity of our students, faculty and staff. I see innovation and experimentation and kindness happening in Zoom, in Slack and in other virtual spaces as we adapt and change with our world. We know that information changes rapidly and are doing our best to consolidate and clarify information in these briefings.
You may also track university updates here.

UPDATES

UPDATE Submit a question
We are collecting your feedback and questions as related to the COVID-19 pandemic in order to provide answers, connections, and thoughtful responses to the arts and design community. As answers become available, we will be posting them in the public Student Support Resource page.Submit a question, feedback and ideas here.

UPDATE Concerns about the news
A recent AZCentral story disclosed that we have several diagnosed COVID-19 cases in the ASU community. Students have asked, “How will I know if I was near any ASU student who has been diagnosed with COVID-19? How are the students being traced, and how will I be contacted?”

The answer is that individuals that test positive for COVID-19 work with the State Health Department, who then leads a tracing process, mapping the possible contacts over the previous 14 days. If you have not been contacted, then assume there was no contact with known infected individuals. HOWEVER, as Arizona has a documented level of community spread, all students, staff and faculty are encouraged to practice social distancing protocols and self-awareness of symptoms: https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/conditions-and-diseases/coronavirus/coronavirus-social-distancing-and-self-quarantine

UPDATE What do I do if I have symptoms?
If you are experiencing symptoms—cough, fever, vomiting, shortness of breath—contact ASU health services: https://eoss.asu.edu/health/contact, or call your health care professional or medical provider if you have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, or if you live in or have recently traveled from an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19.
Your health care provider will work with the local health department and the Arizona Department of Health Services to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19.
There are now commercial laboratory tests available with a doctor’s orders; do not go directly to a commercial lab to get a COVID-19 test. The Arizona State Public Health Laboratory also has testing capability with a faster turnaround time, but there are limited number of tests and testing must be authorized by local and state public health.
Additionally, the state’s COVID-19 information hotline is 1-844-542-8201.

Additional resources:

The Arizona Department of Health FAQ has some good information.

UPDATE Am I going to get a refund?
From ASU’s FAQ: While we are not giving out refunds at this time, as things stabilize with COVID-19, we will be looking into potential accommodations for services that may have gone unused by students.

ASU Counseling Services I need some support. Is counseling still an option?

UPDATES

UPDATE Lab access
We have been working through steps to ensure that students who want to have lab access to specialized labs can in this modified learning and work environment. Faculty have been instructed to modify student work and assignments so that lab access is not required. We are working to ensure we have adequate cleaning supplies to keep proper sanitization available in labs. Today, we are opening the following labs:

  • MUSW225/290
  • DGH258
  • DN255/263
  • Best Hall C 114

Hours

  • Mon-Fri: 9 a.m.–1 p.m., 5 p.m.–9 p.m.
  • Sat–Sun: 10 a.m.–4 p.m

Labs will be staffed by student workers. Student workers will NOT clean equipment. We will follow social distancing (limited occupancy) at labs, and supplies (gloves, wipes) will be provided so that students can clean equipment before and after use. We will also abide by proper social distancing in the labs. We will maintain this structure and lab hours only as long as adequate staffing and cleaning supplies are available. We will close labs if staff and supplies are unavailable. This is a shifting situation. Please bear with us as we try to support our students while maintaining practices that are sensible and safe.

We are also working hard to secure home licenses for specialized software, but that is case-by-case. Again, you will not be required to complete an assignment using software that you do not have access to remotely.

Students:

As we continue to monitor this situation, we will provide a daily briefing to the Herberger Institute Community to keep you up to date. You may also track university updates here.

During this unprecedented time, Herberger faculty and staff have done incredible work responding to minute by minute changes in order to make sure our students, our research and our community partners are held up and supported. Each day, please make space to thank and encourage those in our community working to make this interruption smooth, clear and effective! At the end of this message, I share a note I received from one of our faculty members this weekend – testimony to the creativity and generosity each of you is using to approach this work.

UPDATES

UPDATE Travel Advisory: All staff, faculty and students who have traveled to a Level 3 Country in the last two weeks, or who live with someone who has, should stay home and practice self-quarantine for 14 days.

UPDATE Finance and Travel: ASU has instituted special procedures for procurement and travel during the COVID19 event. Your unit Business Operations Manager (BOM) has been briefed and you should direct questions to the BOM in your unit. Please continue to submit requests to travel to the Dean’s Office for approval, per President and Provost’s instructions. We are prioritizing decisions about travel planned in the next 30 days and may not respond immediately to requests for travel further out as this situation is dynamic.

Cleaning: ASU has increased its cleaning and sanitization in the last week and will continue to respond based on state and federal public health recommendations. If you need supplies, please work with your unit business operations manager to order immediately. To report an area that is not been sanitized please contact Jamie LaRue at jamie.larue@asu.ed

I want to close by sharing this extraordinary note from a faculty member in the School of Music -- received at 6:30 a.m. on Saturday:

“This is an extraordinary time. A time to: 1) reflect and tell our story and 2) create and innovate. Through it all, this week has been a roller coaster and quite invigorating at the same time. Though a bit challenging at first, current events have inspired us all to focus on the things that we can control - although with a bit of discomfort - which can be interpreted as a sign of growth. I believe that this is also a time to approach everything we do with positivity and resilience, including our own teaching and our individual artistry.

Despite current events, I see this as a time of inspiration and motivation for us as artists and educators to embrace change and CELEBRATE! Instead of looking to the outside world for the answers, we can turn inward and collaborate/communicate amongst ourselves to find the answers, to be the thought leaders that we pride ourselves in being.”

With gratitude and pride for everything everyone is doing.

Herberger Institute Public Events Briefing

ASU Guidance as of 3/14/2020

For the next 30 days, all events on any ASU campus or in any ASU building that are not directly related to the educational or research mission of the university are canceled in order to limit the community spread of COVID-19. Check with event organizers before attending events. More information at coronavirus.asu.edu/faqs.

In design, arts and culture, the act of presenting our work to the public is critical to our crafts. We believe in the vitality of communities and the livelihood of artists, designers and the institutions that support them. We have nearly 1000 public facing events per year–many led by and with our incredible students, faculty and community partners. We do not take the cancellation or change of artistic events lightly. We understand the real creative and financial harm that occurs when we change events.

However, we must follow ASU policy, and so we have made every effort to postpone or modify delivery of events when possible. This includes public events that are integrated with student courses or culminating requirements such as recitals, solo shows, exhibitions and performances. This means we may explore artistic presentation via Zoom or enact social distancing in performance disciplines so the “show can go on,” but differently.

We have updated the Herberger Institute Events Calendar through March 31. We will continue to modify events as changes occur, and we ask that you check this page regularly for updates.

Below are School and Museum updates. If you have questions we recommend you contact your faculty member or school school/museum director for clarification.

ASU Campus Recruitment Visits: Visits, recruitment events and programs (Sun Devil Days, Experience ASU program etc.) will continue as scheduled and additional social distancing measures are being enacted to support safety during these events.

  • Messaging is being sent to prospective students that tours are still on, but other options are available by contacting their admission representative. A virtual tour option is being explored.
  • Tour meeting locations have been moved outside, except for Arts, Media and Engineering, which has elected to keep their usual meeting location:
    • School of Art (ART) – meet in front of the Art building.
    • School of Film, Dance and Theatre (FDT) – meet in front of GHALL building.
    • The Design School (TDS) – Meet in the breezeway between CDN and CDS.
    • School of Arts, Media and Engineering (AME) – Stauffer B Building 102.
    • School of Music (SOM) – Meet in the fountain area, in the courtyard.
  • The recruitment team is calling all visitors (in addition to email reminders) to confirm their attendance/cancellation for the tours scheduled between March 16-27.
  • Visitors will be reminded to keep social distancing and practice good healthy habits.
  • Tour leads will have portable microphones. Masks and sanitizer will be provided if available.

Please direct all questions about Herberger Institute campus tours to Yi-Chun Kuo at Sunny.Kuo@asu.edu.

Public Events in the Schools and ASU Art Museum: We have updated the status of all events through MARCH 31. Events after 3/31/2020 will remain in the calendar as we monitor the situation.

School of Art

  • Exhibitions in the School of Art’s Harry Wood, Step and Northlight galleries will continue as scheduled. Galleries will be open to the public with social distance measures in place, however, all public Opening Receptions are cancelled until further notice.
  • MFA Thesis Exhibitions will take place as scheduled.
  • We are working to reschedule Visiting Artist and Scholar lectures. Please check the events calendar for updates.

School of Film, Dance and Theatre

  • Theatre and dance rehearsals and technical and shop work will be cancelled for the next two weeks and a revised schedule will be posted after March 20.
  • The Crucible performance will be postponed until September 2020.
  • Studios and theatres in the School of Film, Dance and Theatre are closed until further notice. The computer labs, however, will remain open.

School of Music

  • Degree recitals will continue with audience limited to immediate family members and will be live streamed for anyone wishing to view the recital. Streamed concerts are available here: music.asu.edu/events/streamed-concerts.
  • Rehearsal spaces will be managed on a reservation basis. We ask that all students who utilize spaces be responsible for maintaining hygiene for yourself and for the space. Students must wash their hands before and after using a practice room or piano. Students are asked to keep in mind and respect the CDC’s recommendation for social distancing, specifically the recommendation for maintaining 6.5 feet distance between people.

The Design School

  • All events through March 31 are cancelled.

School of Arts, Media and Engineering

  • All events through March 31 are cancelled.

ASU Art Museum

  • The galleries remain open daily during regular hours.
  • All events, openings and fundraising events have been cancelled through March 31.

Herberger Ticketing Box Office: Many events have been cancelled per ASU policy. Per Herberger Box Office Policy, tickets already purchased are non-refundable except in the case of a cancelled event. Exchanges for cancelled events can be made for a different performance at the discretion of the management when requested prior to the start date and time on the original ticket. You may contact the Box Office for further information.

Dissertations and Theses: The Graduate College has sent out guidance on thesis and dissertation defenses. In light of the recent decision to transition classes to online instruction for the next two weeks (effective March 16), the Graduate College is authorizing the use of Zoom video conferencing to conduct dissertation/thesis defenses. Thus, students can hold their thesis/dissertation defenses either on campus OR virtually on Zoom.

Because a public defense is a graduation requirement, the Graduate College must record the committee’s decision on how the defense will be conducted. For students with a defense scheduled in the next two weeks: Please email Graduate College grad-gps@asu.edu immediately if the defense will be held via Zoom. Please include the following information necessary to advertise the defense:

  • Student Name
  • Student ID#
  • Defense Date/Time
  • Zoom Link
  • CC Committee Chair and Student

Once the Graduate College is alerted, they will provide instructions for holding the defense on Zoom and advertise the Zoom link in place of a building location. Faculty and students should work together to manage these steps and work with the Graduate College to change events as necessary.

Questions not addressed here related to public events can be routed to your school director or the ASU Art Museum Director.

Herberger Institute Community Briefing

March 12, 2020

Students:

I am writing this message in light of recent developments, and ask that you please read this message in its entirety. If you have any questions at all, please let me know—things are continuing to evolve and information will continue to flow. We will provide a daily briefing to the Herberger Institute community to keep you up to date. You may also track university updates here.

As we continue to monitor the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the health and safety of our community continues to be our top priority. Out of an abundance of caution, ASU is preparing to temporarily transition its face-to-face teaching and learning activities to remote delivery. The university is open.  There is no change in incidence rates or the assessed risks on campus. Moving courses that can reasonably be delivered remotely to an online platform is a smart precaution.

  1. Remote Delivery of Instruction: All classes that can be taught remotely will move to online/remote delivery of instruction for the next two weeks as per messages from President Crow and Provost Searle. There may be some exceptions to instruction that will continue in person. All students should be informed by their faculty instructors about course status by noon PST on March 13, 2020.

  2. Student Accommodations: As we make the transition to online instruction, some students may need additional ADA accommodations. Please inform your instructor of necessary accommodations. The Disability Resource Center has tools that are available to support this transition. If you have additional questions about student accommodation please contact both your school director and associate dean, Kathryn Maxwell at Kathryn.maxwell@asu.edu.

  3. Travel Approvals: Please continue to submit requests to your school director, who will work with the Dean’s Office for approval per President and Provost’s instructions. We are prioritizing decisions about travel planned in the next 30 days and may not respond immediately to requests for travel further out as this situation is dynamic.

  4. Cleaning: ASU has increased its cleaning and sanitization four times in the last week and will continue to respond based on state and federal public health recommendations. Labs and studios where students continue to have in-person instruction will have increased sanitization.

  5. Public Events: Remain as planned per the President and Provost. We will update you if this stated policy changes.

  6. Student Workers: Student workers will continue to work and be paid as normal. If you have questions about your work or work schedule, please communicate with your supervisor. The institution has made the move to remote delivery of instruction to minimize exposure and risk; however, the campus remains open for other business. We recommend all employees take appropriate precautions and follow all CDC recommended guidelines for hygiene.  Specifically, if you feel ill, or live in a household with ill individuals, please stay home. If you a health condition deemed as high risk by the CDC, have childcare/family care issues due to school/daycare closure and/or child illness which affect your ability to work, or otherwise need to work remotely, please contact your supervisor.

  7. Monitoring the Situation: As this is a dynamic situation, we have implemented daily briefings that will be sent to students, staff and faculty.   

The health and safety of the Herberger Institute community is our first priority. We will do our best to keep all communication channels open and provide accurate and timely information to our community as soon as it is available. We will provide a daily briefing like this to keep you as informed as we can. If you have additional questions, please send to HIDADean@asu.edu. Please be patient, please be kind, and please be careful.
