A Message From President Standifird

Dear Bradley Community,

I can’t believe the time is here and we are about to begin the fall semester. Move-in begins this week, our final orientation sessions are underway and soon our campus will be bustling once again with activity - properly distanced of course. Many of you, I am sure, might be a bit anxious but hopefully, you are as excited as we are to get things started.

My first semester at Bradley is no doubt going to be unlike anything any of us have ever experienced. I am confident we will persevere and it will take all of us working together. The campus is going to be a bit different this semester and we put this video together to show you some of the changes. We are ready!

I want to remind you that facial coverings are required. So, Mask Up. Physical distancing guidelines are in effect and it is important you follow all of the return to campus plans we have created. Incredible teams have worked all summer following the science, following best practices and incorporating some ingenuity and imagination.

To our students and faculty who are learning and teaching remotely, we are ready for you too. Our instructors have completed online learning and design trainings and the Canvas learning management system has launched. The Bradley education will be first-class, just as you would expect.

We are prepared for hybrid learning, face to face learning and to pivot fully online if we must. You will be hearing from us quite a bit as we inch closer to the first day of classes. Please pay attention to your email and visit our Coronavirus website for the latest updates.

Stephen Standifird
