With the COVID-19 pandemic, many Salisbury University students have been wondering whether they will be able to return to campus in the fall. That question has finally been answered.
Earlier in the day, Jay Perman, University System of Maryland chancellor, announced that colleges in the University System of Maryland, including SU, will welcome students to campus in the fall, according to an email sent to SU community members from SU President Charles Wight's office.
However, according to the email, classes will be in a hybrid format, including both online and in-person instruction. The email also said that in the event of unforeseen circumstances, SU's plans will remain flexible as long as COVID-19 is a potential threat.
To prepare for students' return to campus, SU set up a COVID-19 Task Force and Planning Teams, which released the Return-to-Campus Overview.
The overview details steps the university plans to take in order to keep students safe and healthy, including plans for multiple operational scenarios for the fall semester. Though SU is welcoming students back to campus in the fall, areas such as housing and dining, academic affairs/instruction and research may be affected by new policies.
