President Pinto's Message: Return to Campus Guide

Dear UC Community,

The Fall 2020 Semester will be unlike any in our university’s history. We plan to welcome our returning and new students to campus with courses opening on August 24, and have planned a combination of online, hybrid, HyFlex and in-person courses, along with an adjusted calendar and enhanced health and safety measures. Academic units are preparing to offer the majority of courses online and are developing all modes of teaching in ways that uphold our strong academic excellence and student learning outcomes. Please review our online Return to Campus Guide, which covers safety, teaching and learning, campus life, housing, contingency planning and other resources related to Fall Semester. Continue to check our public health website for updates. Know that while our Fall Semester may be different from usual, the University of Cincinnati will continue to provide the highly respected experiential and co-curricular education for which it is known.  

Go Bearcats!

Neville G. Pinto
President
