Pivot to Fall

There are many committees working with one focus—to safely welcome back students, faculty, and staff to campus and plan for the many possible ways that we will safely meet our important teaching, research and community engagement missions. The Pivot to Fall 2020 is the planning document intended to keep faculty, staff and students safe while providing an excellent educational experience to our students in the fall.
