Mustangs Return - Return to campus. Return to learn.

Mustangs Return!

Mustangs lead in times of change. As we prepare to return to campus, we continually ask “What is best for our Mustang Family in our changing world?” While there are many unknowns as we prepare for fall and beyond, our Mustangs Return Planning effort aims to provide a robust learning environment in which students can discover and engage, while also keeping our students, faculty, and staff healthy and safe. Leading through change is not only what we teach, it’s what we do.

Mustangs Return to Campus

Wear a mask. Physical Distancing. Good Hygiene.

The Mustangs Return Plan sets the following goals that provide guidance as we move to reopen campus.

  • Protecting the health and safety of our faculty, staff and students
  • Providing students the best academic and student life experiences and enabling them to progress toward their educational goals while providing a safe learning environment
  • Maintain the financial sustainability of the University
  • Pursue the strategic directions and priorities of the University
