Message From the Provost: Onsite Class Delivery Fall Quarter

Dear City University Students:

I hope that everyone is staying well and safe during these difficult times. I know there is a great deal going on in the world and much uncertainty. I write today in hopes of providing at least one point of certainty about our fall quarter courses. the University continues to pay close attention to guidelines from government and health officials about exactly when we can return to campus and what guidelines we must follow when we do. While certain areas are beginning to reopen more widely, it is clear that a full return to campus for all students and all classes is not likely in the near future. We believe it is in the best interest of our students, faculty, and staff to continue to offer the majority of courses normally scheduled as in-class or mixed mode via synchronous video throughout fall quarter as we have done for spring and summer quarters.

However, we will be offering some in-person or face-to-face class sessions for international students. We are committed to supporting our international students in maintaining their studies, and despite recent positive news from Homeland Security, as allowed by the state and county, we plan to provide select face-to-face instruction options to maintain international students’ visa status. We have plans in place to be able to do so safely and ensure health and safety guidelines are followed.

If more clear guidance suggests we are all able to safely return to campus at some point in fall, we will announce a comprehensive plan to begin doing so. Until then,
stay well, stay engaged,

Provost Dr. Scott Carnz
