We are pleased to announce that we intend for a full return to campus for the Fall 2021 term, and we look forward to welcoming students back to an in-person learning environment. COVID-19 still poses risks to our community, and we continue to enforce our required safety protocols. Please continue to follow our mask policy and perform a daily symptom check.
