Return to Class

While the COVID-19 pandemic has brought unique circumstances and challenges to institutions across the globe, Bradley University continues to uphold its core values of student success, knowledge and discovery, inclusiveness and connectivity, and excellence. The following decisions involved in having our students return to class will support their learning through a high-quality education, while implementing efforts to care for the health and safety of the entire Bradley family.

What's Ahead:

In-Person Learning - As an institution, we are looking for creative ways in which we can continue our emphasis and quality of in-person learning while respecting the health of all involved.

While in-person learning is a priority for the fall 2020 semester, we also must prepare to teach online. It is imperative that all instructors must be prepared to deliver their courses in a hybrid style. This highly flexible manner will allow us to meet classroom physical distancing guidelines and students’ potential needs. Accordingly, we will continue to develop quality remote and in-class learning opportunities with the assistance of technology. We will invest time, energy and finances toward seeking opportunities for improvement.

Available Resources - Inclusiveness is one of our core values and we will continue to focus efforts to grow towards this value. With that, we are seeking and acknowledging the individual needs of our students, faculty and staff. We will be prepared to help accommodate students and provide them a Bradley education where they are.

Additionally, we encourage all members of the Bradley family to familiarize themselves with COVID-19: What You Need to Know, a training module based on CDC guidance. Training on proper physical distancing, health guidelines and campus expectations will take place over the coming months for Bradley’s faculty, staff and students.

As this situation is fluid, all made decisions could change based on new information or guidelines.
