UC classrooms to remain dark until fall
OAKLAND – (INT) – The University of California announced Monday that in-person instruction won’t resume until September. UC officials said the decision is being announced now “to enable prospective and current students as well as their families to understand our goal well in advance amid the uncertainties of the pandemic.”
“As the University continues to monitor the evolution of the pandemic, we are also carefully planning a safe return to in-person classes,” said President Michael V. Drake, M.D., who made the decision in consultation with the 10 UC chancellors. “Current forecasts give us hope that in the fall our students can enjoy a more normal on-campus experience.”
Specific plans for resumption of fall classes, including additional safety measures and starting dates, will be announced by individual UC campuses.
