Students and their faculty mentors are encouraged to identify projects that can be completed remotely where possible during the time period in which Cal Poly has limited access to campus due to the COVID-19 outbreak. In limited cases in which this is not possible, funded student researchers must work with their faculty mentors to request university approval via existing processes and follow all campus COVID-19 prevention and safety protocols, including frequent handwashing, cleaning protocols, physical distancing, and wearing a face covering. More information can be found on the Research, Economic Development & Graduate Education website. Faculty mentors must also have all participants sign a safety acknowledgment.
