Returning to Campus


Caring for our Pilots. Caring for our community. Caring for the world.

We're excited to welcome our Pilots Back to The Bluff for Fall 2020. Task forces of faculty, staff, and students have been working all summer to develop protocols to promote your safety when you return to campus. Fall semester will include a blend of in-person classes and remote instruction, as well as a variety of campus life experiences that meet safety guidelines set forth by the State of Oregon. Please return to this page often! Many of our protocols are still in development, and our plans are subject to change as our understanding of COVID-19 evolves.
