West Chester University is set to open on time with dorms at full capacity for the fall semester, writes Michelle Caffrey for the Philadelphia Business Journal.
WCU announced it will adopt a hybrid approach of in-person and virtual interactions for the next academic year to ensure that students can start the semester on its 406-acre campus.
The school, which has an enrollment of more than 17,500, will start bringing back students for the next semester on Aug. 24.
As part of its reopening plans, WCU will require that all employees and students wear face masks on campus, offer both virtual and in-person classes, limit the number of staff on campus, and wrap up the semester remotely after Thanksgiving.
And while the university plans to bring students back to the campus at full capacity, WCU President Christopher Fiorentino said the university will “implement modifications in support of the safety of our students, faculty, staff, and community.”
These include offering both in-person and remote components for every class, holding all faculty office hours and student advising remotely, and ramping up the cleaning and sanitizing procedures.
