University Resilience Operations Committee

student walking on campus

The University is now preparing for the Spring 2021 semester using a deliberate and thoughtful approach to examine our options to provide a safe educational and operational experience for everyone. Our goal is to welcome students back on campus for the spring 2021 semester, following federal and state COVID-19 guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff.
