TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Indiana State University plans to resume on-campus teaching and learning this fall.
The plans were announced in a letter from ISU President Dr. Deborah Curtis Monday.
According to the letter, most classes will be offered face-to-face with some courses being online.
Officials are working to make adjustments to promote social distancing in instructional settings.
The university will also provide two face coverings to each student, faculty and staff member this fall to wear in instructional spaces and indoor areas where social distancing is difficult.
The letter states the end of the semester after Thanksgiving break will be completed online so students do not have to return to campus.
As for this year’s homecoming, the university says plans will be forthcoming this summer and will be based on recommendations from the Homecoming Committee. The committee will consult with campus governance groups and community stakeholders.
“What rings clear to us is the need to engage, not only as a campus but also certainly with the community leadership and the mayor’s office has been wonderful on our planning last year. We’re going to rely on them again to talk thorugh this with us as well as some of the local business owners,” says Curtis.
Curtis says these plans are subject to change as more guidance becomes available from public health and government officials.
