We have been working through campus protocols and procedures that embrace a safe and healthy process for attending classes, participating in curricular and co-curricular activities, eating in the dining facilities and living in community. Our preparations focus on maintaining a quality academic experience, while practicing the highest level of healthy best practices.
Important Information for You
Since we left early in March 2020, campus leaders and faculty have been engaged in work groups to study and plan for a healthy return to a new academic year. Many of these groups include experts and colleagues outside of our campus to ensure that collaboration and community communication are strong. We are committed to working closely with local, regional and state health officials to incorporate guidelines and safely protocols for a healthy and safe reopening. We continue to partner with our regional health providers to guarantee access for our students, faculty and staff who many require medical attention and testing.
