President's Email to Campus Community (October 19)

The following email was sent to the campus community on October 19, 2020.

Subject: Update on fall schedule

Congratulations! We’ve crossed the halfway point through the fall semester.

I appreciate the diligence shown in wearing masks and practicing social distancing while on campus. It’s working.

Based on our current number of positive COVID-19 cases, we’re planning to complete the fall semester as originally planned.

Following Thanksgiving break, classes will continue in their current formats. Finals will take place as scheduled.

While we’ve seen large improvements in the number of positive COVID-19 cases since early September, we need to stay vigilant.

I encourage everyone to continue to take precautions to protect yourselves and others.

Let’s finish the semester strong.

Go Bears!
