The year 2019-20, the fourth year of Building on Strength, was a historic year for Connecticut College and for all of higher education, with the global coronavirus pandemic causing ordinary in-person instruction to cease in March 2020 and requiring all activities at the College — including Commencement — to be completed remotely. Most accomplishments listed in this report thus took place over not a 12-month but a 9-month period between June 2019 and February 2020. The many actions taken by the College to mitigate the effects of COVID-19, while extensive, are not included.



New actions on the strategic plan since the May 2019 progress report  are shown in red typeface. Completed items are indicated with a green check mark.
