The safety and well-being of our university community and the St. Louis region are our highest priorities. As we continue to prepare for the 2020-21 academic year, we will provide updates and share our plans for the year ahead.
Health and Safety Requirements
There are a number of requirements for being on campus. These include:
- Complete daily self-screen
- Wear face coverings
- Physical distancing
- Practice good hygiene
Danforth Campus Town Halls
The Danforth Campus community was invited to attend a series of town halls June 17-22 to learn more about our planning process for the fall semester, and to ask questions and share feedback with members of the Fall Planning Committee.
For those who are now on campus, whether for short periods of time or for full days, there are a number of important steps we all must take to help keep our community safe and healthy.
The Board of Trustees has approved a temporary suspension of the university contribution to the employee 403(b) retirement savings plan for the 2020-2021 fiscal year.
Although many aspects of our planning are continuing to evolve, it is clear that nearly every course will have an online presence. This will enable us to offer remote instruction to students who choose not to return to campus in person or become subject to quarantine at some point during the semester, and to pivot seamlessly should public health considerations require a return to alternate operations.
