  • Return to Campus

    The University has prepared to gradually phase-in in-person activities beginning in fall 2020.  There will be a limited number of in-person programs and services, requiring a subset of students and employees to maintain a physical presence on campus. Please view this document for our detailed Return to Campus Plan. If you will be present on-campus you must read and understand the Statement of Shared Responsibility and Acknowledgement of Unique Circumstances.
