As much as it is possible, we are planning to return to full face-to-face learning as our default mode of instruction. We will use hybrid and remote learning as needed on a case-by-case basis to mitigate risk. Deans, Division Chairs and Program Directors will need to approve such changes through the Vice-President for Academic Affairs.  

Classrooms have been returned to pre-COVID configurations. Plexiglass barriers will remain in high traffic areas and in some labs. Although we are not currently mandating face coverings, we recommend that everyone has one with them in case it is needed. Distancing is always an option if deemed necessary. 

As we move into the fall and forward, we will be carefully monitoring local, state and federal guidelines for COVID-related actions. Vaccinations are not mandatory on campus, but they may be mandatory for certain clinical majors (Education, Nursing, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, etc.) due to regulations at the clinical or teaching site. Students in these programs will be required to follow such guidelines or they will not be able to complete their required clinical or student teaching courses.
