Uncommon Return: CUAA student return plan for fall semester
Dear Concordians, June 5, 2020
It is not lost on me that this letter comes to you in the midst of two remarkable situations occurring in our nation: the ongoing challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic and the nation-wide demonstrations following the senseless killing of George Floyd. Concordia University, its faculty, staff, and students continue to respond in these moments with faith and fortitude. I recognize this communication might in some ways seem out of place in the midst of these many challenges, but we have important information to share that will help you prepare for the fall.
Like your faculty, staff, and administration, I know you are eager to return to campus in the fall. We are looking forward to welcoming you and continue to invest our best care and planning into the many details necessary to ensure you will be, as always, safe-on-campus.
Our administration has teamed with members of the faculty, local public health leaders, and public health experts to develop the student plan for an Uncommon Return this fall. That plan is available to you here.
