  • Remote work requirements (with only critical operations on campus) remain in place until further notice.
  • The planning continues for how we return to the workplace or transition to new ways of working in order to protect faculty and staff.
  • We are planning for a very low-density population on campus this fall.
  • Fall Term 1 and 2 classes will be offered remotely.
  • Condensed academic terms may allow us to bring students safely onto campus in phases.
