DePauw University has announced students, faculty and staff will return to normal classroom and living conditions in the fall. President Lori White says the decision is based on the university’s following of health protocols and the availability of COVID-19 vaccines.
“Although we can’t know with certainty what guidelines and practices the Centers for Disease Control and local, state and national agencies will require this fall, we are optimistic about a return to a fully residential campus,” White said.
White says the university’s COVID-19 mitigation team will continue monitoring the pandemic and will continue to work with local and state health officials on health and safety requirements. White says details about fall plans for class registration, residence halls, work policies and vaccinations will be made available by Academic Affairs and Student Academic Life divisions once they are determined.
