Fall 2021 Return to Campus Plans

The delta variant of COVID-19 has spurred changes to the fall 2021 return-to-campus plans for many institutions. In this special call-in episode, AACRAO members share the approach their institution is taking, answering the following questions:

  • Who are you, where are you from, and how many students are enrolled at your institution?
  • Is your institution requiring students/faculty/staff to be vaccinated, and if so, how are people providing that information?
  • Will masks be required? What other mitigation strategies will be used, if any?
  • Is your institution back to pre-covid primarily face-to-face / a blend of face-to-face and online / still primarily online?
