UB Fall Semester Update

University of Bridgeport campus in the Fall

Dear Members of the University of Bridgeport Community,

We hope this message finds you and your loved ones healthy and safe.

Like colleges and universities across the U.S., UB worked quickly to transition from in-person to online instruction due to the unprecedented nature of the coronavirus pandemic. To ensure the continued health, safety, and protection of our students, faculty, and staff, both of UB’s summer sessions will be offered through online instruction.

We are taking this opportunity to let you know that UB is planning to resume on-campus operations and conduct in-person instruction, learning, and residential life for the fall 2020 semester. We want to assure you that we are considering multiple models that will account for our community’s health and allow us to safely open the campus consistent with best practices, as defined by: https://portal.ct.gov/-/media/Office-of-the-Governor/News/20200506-Recommendations-to-Governor-Lamont-for-a-phased-reopening-of-colleges-and-universities.pdf?la=en

We continue to monitor developments related to COVID-19 and assure you that we will adhere to state and national directives.

Like you, we are ready to get back to campus. We hope to be together again soon and welcome our new and returning students. We are grateful to the many members of the UB community who worked to ensure the continuity of our educational mission and business operations these past two months.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you soon.

 

Sincerely,

Stephen Healey
Interim President

Interim Provost
