A note about fall planning: Our number one priority is the health and safety of our students and campus community. We are optimistic that we will be able to start in the fall on campus as planned; however, none of us can predict how the public health crisis will evolve in the weeks to come. In preparation, we are creating plans for several possible scenarios that will enable us to adapt to public health and governmental restrictions that may be in place. We are 100% committed to teaching and supporting our students with the highest quality and care, regardless of the impact COVID-19 may have on the coming academic year.
