In an email to students, faculty and staff, Curry College president, Kenneth Quigley, announced that Curry will return to full, in-person campus operations for the Fall semester.
Here is the full statement:
Dear Curry Students and Families,
As we pass the halfway mark of the Spring semester, I want to thank each and every one of you for your continuous hard work, cooperation and dedication to the success of our entire campus community.
Our students, faculty and staff continue to show an extraordinary shared commitment to keeping each other and our College healthy in our classrooms, study spaces, playing fields and residence halls. This is a worthy accomplishment. Your continuous hard work and dedication to the success of our entire campus community are what have made this possible to date. Thank you.
As a result of your efforts, we have contained the spread of COVID-19 on campus, increasingly continue to re-introduce some of our regular campus activities, and are now actively planning for an in-person Commencement ceremony for our Classes of 2020 and 2021 on the weekend of May 22 and May 23.
As we look to the future, we’re pleased to share that the College is planning to return to our full on-campus operations for the fall semester, including in-person classes, student activities and support, and athletics. Though we anticipate some safety precautions may remain in place as informed by the then current guidance, we’re excited for a traditional 2021-2022 academic year.
We have all long anticipated the day when our community could gather again in person, and I have great confidence that our campus will be full and busy again with activity this year. Please know that our community’s health and safety will remain our utmost priority in all of our planning for the upcoming academic year.
I am immensely proud of how our Curry community has come together this academic year to make learning and living on our campus at this challenging time successful, safe and healthy. It is crucial that we remain vigilant and committed to our health and safety protocols so that we can continue to stay together through the rest of the semester this spring successfully.
Thank you for all you do.
Kenneth K. Quigley, Jr.
