  • UW Releases Draft of Plan for Fall Semester

Temple University has unveiled plans to reopen its campus for the fall semester, painting a picture of what life at the Philadelphia college will be like in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

"After the Thanksgiving holiday, finals will be conducted remotely November 30 through December 4 for MCV Campus classes and November 30 to December 7 for Monroe Park Campus classes", the university announced. The traditional undergraduate fall break (originally scheduled for October 19-23) will be moved to the end of the semester and term so that undergraduate fall semester and terms end a week earlier.

Students will be able to move into their dorm rooms beginning in mid-August, the president said.

VCU will require students, faculty, and staff to complete return-to-campus training.

Respect social distancing measures (6 feet).

The Wolfville, N.S., university announced it will be welcoming students back to campus in September, offering in-person and online courses. As of now, Temple is in the first phase, which allows medical and safety staff, and construction and facilities workers on campus. "We are taking every precaution and making every preparation possible so they can do that safely".

The government will continue to pay the same amount as previously, with no contributions being required by business. This should help employers gradually get people back to work, protecting jobs and helping the economy to recover.

The second phase will begin later this month and will allow research and clinics to resume at select locations on campus. The following phase, slated to begin at the end of June, allows for a small number of summer classes to be held in person.

"At this stage, we're looking at trying to develop a hybrid plan that will have some on-campus activity, but also have remote or virtual offerings", said Dale Keefe, the university's vice-president academic. Remote learning activities and options will be a component of most classes, and some classes will be offered entirely in a remote format.

Many courses may be blended, conducted in-person and online. Students wouldn't return to Morgantown until the beginning of the spring semester on January 19, 2021. Input is being accepted through Friday, June 5, at this online portal.

While the fall 2020 term will differ in many ways from fall 2019, the guiding and unchanging principle will remain the same: fulfilling Webster's mission to providing high-quality, accessible educational experiences in an environment that maintains the health and safety of everyone in our community.

Similar to Temple, Drexel University assembled a task force to decide the best way forward regarding the upcoming semester. Decisions regarding post-Thanksgiving instruction will be made at a later date based on the state of the virus.

Although restrictions are slowly being lifted in Tokyo and Rome, where Temple has campuses, university-sponsored worldwide travel remains suspended, and domestic travel is "strongly discouraged", the university said.
