  • Primary Goal: Closely monitor expanded activity from Step 3.  If guidelines and environment permit, consider opportunities for pilot in-classroom experiences for certain early-start graduate programs.
  • Estimated Dates: Mid-to-late July through early August, with exact dates to be determined.
  • Key Conditions: 
    • Pilot classroom experiences for programs starting in July, if allowed by state guidelines.
    • Repopulation of certain percentage of remote faculty and staff.

  • Key Conditions: 
    • Increased percentage of staff and faculty on campus.
    • Most campus buildings open and functioning. 
    • Lessened restrictions on travel, events, and visitors.

Step 6: A New Academic Year

  • Primary Goal: Safely begin the core academic year on campus for most undergraduate and graduate students.  
  • Estimated Dates: Mid-September and continuing.
  • Key Conditions to be Determined, but could include: 

    • Juniors and seniors, and limited exceptions for freshmen and sophomores, on campus.
    • Most staff and faculty on campus.
