BAC 学生们 Transition to Online Learning

It is important to note that the BAC remains open while shifting to another educational modality. As a pioneer in distance learning for design, we are uniquely positioned to offer our students continued excellence in education.

BAC Cleaning and Sanitizing Process

500 Internal Server Error

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application.

The Facilities team has been instructed during their cleaning regimen to use one rag per floor, using a germicidal disinfectant solution to wipe down all high-touch surfaces. A combination of aforementioned solution and Lysol disinfectant spray is being used on all surfaces in the restrooms. Newly installed hand sanitizer dispensers complete the coverage around the campus, which is on each floor in both buildings and 955 Boylston office.

Our cleaning company provides their own cleaning products which contain germicidal disinfectants and clean all high touch surfaces around the campus on a nightly basis. We will have MSDS (materials safety data sheet) available shortly for employees concerned with any cleaning product ingredients used.

If there are any concerns or questions, do not hesitate to reach out to Ellen Yee (ellen.yee@the-bac.edu)或者给Fulas(daniel.fula@the-bac.edu)。
