Looking ahead to the fall

- University of Victoria

Message from President Hall

Dear UVic community,

In light of recent optimistic news from the provincial health officer, I am excited to share that UVic is planning for a full return to face-to-face teaching and learning this September.

I've heard from many of you how much you're looking forward to being on campus again and I am extremely encouraged to hear from our public health experts that British Columbians could be returning to regular activities as early as this summer!

We've begun planning how we can bring all students, faculty and staff back safely this fall and are continuing to work with government and partners to make sure the right measures are in place to keep our community safe.

There are still lots of unknowns, and many of you will have questions. We'll do our best to keep everyone updated over the coming weeks and months while building flexibility into our planning. When the final fall timetable goes live in May it will indicate how courses will be delivered and registration will begin in June as usual.

When this began a year ago, none of us knew how long we would be affected or the toll it would take on every aspect of our lives and work. I want to express our deep appreciation for all of your hard work and dedication and I look forward to welcoming you all to campus this September. It's going to be a great year!
