We are grateful for how our community has responded during the last 18 months of the pandemic. It’s clear with the Delta variant, the pandemic is not past us. Public health conditions are changeable and we will need to continue to be flexible during prolonged uncertainty. As shared by university leadership, we are proceeding with returning to near-normal operations this fall in support of the student and residential experience.  

The health and safety of our community is our priority and the university has established tools such as Health Check, vaccine, testing and masking policies, as well as other protocols to ensure community safety. We will keep a close eye on the situation, monitoring CDC and public health guidance and keep our community updated on any changes.

Please consult your supervisor or your school/unit HR Manager if you have concerns or questions about circumstances that may affect your return.
