Over the past two months, the executive administration has been planning for the return to campus for the fall semester based upon the guidance available from Governor Wolf’s office, the Pennsylvania Department for Health and the Center for Disease Control, as well as other local and federal agencies. As Pennsylvania, Chester County and our surrounding areas move into the next phases of reopening, I established the Return to Campus Task Force, charging its members with continuing the development of a strategic plan to safely bring our students, faculty and staff back to campus. The task force is comprised of broad membership across the University, with the goal of transitioning efficiently and effectively, while being as comprehensive as possible.
The task force held its first meeting on May 28, 2020 and will continue to meet on a weekly basis, reporting progress to the executive administration.
While there is much to consider, please be assured we will release information as soon as available, so that everyone can plan for the return to our safe and vibrant campus.
