Your health and safety remain our priority as we plan for the upcoming semesters.

We have watched the numbers of coronavirus cases increase in US and global communities, and this sobering trend has informed our approach to on-campus policies. We are finalizing our protocols for return to campus driven by science and research-based evidence, recognizing our knowledge of the virus continues to evolve. We will be responsive to emerging guidance as the start of fall semester approaches.
