  • Will Commencement be cancelled?

    The University plans to celebrate the Commencement of its graduating students later in the year. In the meantime, see President Crutcher and others’ well wishes for the Class of 2020.

  • Will performances at the Modlin Center continue?

    The University is cancelling all of the Modlin Center Presents events for the fall of 2020. The Modlin Center is exploring virtual programming options with artists and will support curriculum and classroom learning.

    See the Modlin Center website for further updates.

  • What about fall events?

    Looking ahead to fall, we are focused on preparing for the safe return of faculty, staff, and students to campus and putting in place the policies and capacity necessary to allow a full academic year of instruction on campus. The Resilience of Operations Working Group is charged with developing robust plans to help mitigate the risk of COVID-19 as we resume campus operations and residential instruction. As you know, these plans will include detailed physical distancing guidelines, based on public health guidance, that will apply to all aspects of campus life and operations, including classrooms, co-curricular programs, housing, dining, student activities, and offices.

    To enable us to meet the expected physical distancing requirements for classrooms, academic needs will be the first priority for much space on campus this fall. Accordingly, interim policies have been developed for University meetings and events on campus for this summer and fall. Please review these policies at the earliest opportunity to learn how they apply to your program. As you will see, with few exceptions, the University will not host any third-party events on campus through fall 2020.
