Since the start of the pandemic, the University has convened a group of on-campus experts, who have worked in close partnership with local and state health departments, to follow and implement appropriate measures to protect the health and safety of our campus community. This applies to all operations across SBU, including our in-person classroom protocols. We continue to follow the science and guidance from the CDC and other officials, and have developed, implemented and continue to update policies as necessary to protect the entire campus community.
