Coppin State University Plans In-person and Remote Instruction for Fall Semester

BALTIMORE – Coppin State University (CSU) plans to welcome students back to campus for the fall semester in a hybrid capacity, combining in-person instruction with remote learning.

Fall classes are scheduled to begin on August 31, and the university will implement plans that continue to prioritize the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff.

CSU’s commitment to the health and safety of the university community is paramount. A team of representatives from campus health professions, including the university community health center, public safety, student affairs, campus life, academic affairs, and other units across the university are working to prepare the campus in a way that protects students, faculty, staff, and visitors.  CSU also continues to work with Governor Hogan’s office, the University System of Maryland (USM), local, and other state agencies to monitor and manage the COVID-19 pandemic.

Plans call for making residence halls available in a reduced capacity that allows for proper health distancing, based on guidelines provided by the state, USM, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). CSU is also exploring ways to assist with guidance to the surrounding Coppin community, which remains an important priority of the university.

The COVID19 pandemic evolves, constantly, and plans may change for the university to ensure compliance and safety of the campus.

A more detailed announcement will be made, in the coming weeks. In addition, updates will continue to be provided as they are developed, and additional information can be found at www.coppin.edu/coronavirus.
