UB Plans To Conduct In Person Classes In The Fall
SUNY College campuses have been closed to students for a few months now. There was uncertainty what was going to happen in the fall, but UB made their decision today.
The plan is to start back with in person classes once again this fall. However, just like many other businesses, there will be restrictions.
They intend to have students back on campus but the class sizes will be much smaller and the focus will remain on online classes. Also, according to WGRZ, faculty, staff and students will receive face coverings, as face coverings and other means of social distancing will be the new normal.
"This decision will preserve our mission as a place-based, public research institution, while providing us needed flexibility to continue caring for our campus community and providing the best possible educational experience for our students," UB President Satish K. Tripathi and Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs A. Scott Weber
The library will be open as well, but there will also be online options available.
The residence halls will be open but as with everything else will be at a reduced capacity. For those who will be living on campus and have questions about eating at dining halls, the University says that there will be more options for take out available.
UB says they will give more details about the plan for the fall semester very soon.
