Return to Campus Plan
We are currently in Phase 1 and making good progress toward Phase 2 which we hope will be early July. We believe we are on track to be in Phase 3 when students return to campus.
Anderson University’s Response
Anderson University isn’t a place. It’s our people. It’s our students who choose to learn with us. It’s our faculty who dedicate their lives to the most noble pursuit of educating the next generations. It’s our staff who work tirelessly to make sure the campus is the best place to get a college education.
This unprecedented event that we are living through is our chance to live out real life together. It’s all of us working together to do the most good that we can.
We believe that the good we can do extends outside of the classroom. We believe that right now, especially, it has to. We have to care for our community, the one on campus and all of the ones surrounding it.
There have been hard decisions we’ve had to make already, like postponing trips, canceling or rescheduling events, and moving classes temporarily online. These are not decisions we make lightly. We know these events and activities are important to students. They’re important to us, too.
Even more important to us, though, than the day-to-day activities that make up college life is the safety of the people we spend those days with. Because of this, a Task Force has been set up to quickly make decisions to ensure the safety of our community.
