What is UB doing to plan and prepare for the 2020-21 academic year?

UB is actively getting ready for the fall semester. We are planning for scenarios ranging from a full return to on-campus instruction, to continuing distance learning, to modified in-person instruction in a safe campus environment. Our hope for the 2020-21 academic year is to return to normal campus operations as soon as possible, in accordance with guidance from local and state public health officials.

The university’s overall goal is to deliver the best educational and research programs possible while protecting the health and safety of the university community. We will provide regular updates on our plans for the fall  – and gather feedback from students, faculty and staff – as we monitor the pandemic and plan for the new semester.  More information will be posted at www.buffalo.edu/provost/coronavirus-planning.html.
