We move forward, together.

A Safe Return to Campus

Our return to campus will require that all students, faculty, and staff make significant changes to how we live, work, teach and learn. Despite these challenging times, we are working to provide an engaging and fruitful learning experience for our students where they can continue to discover their purpose.

KNOW that we are committed to protecting our community.
NOW is the time to move forward, together.
