UNC Set to Bring Back On-Campus Learning in August
Many educational institutions are still questioning what learning will look like in the fall. UNC has stepped up to say that they'll be ready to reopen for the next academic year.
According to the Reporter-Herald, the President of UNC, Andy Feinstein, sent a letter to students on Thursday, April 30, 2020, saying that the university has made plans, though tentative, to have students and staff back on campus for traditional learning with the start of the fall semester in late August.
From the letter:
We have proven our resilience and ability to adapt to changing circumstances on short notice. Because of that, I am confident that we have ample time in the next 115 days to make necessary and reasonable accommodations to ensure that we can return to campus while continuing to protect the health and safety of our community
I don't know how I feel about this. I can see how the university needs the money provided by on-campus students, and I'm sure they'll have every safety measure that's required in place, but it still seems early to make the decision.
It's all above my 'pay grade,' that's for sure.
How do you feel about it?
