Undergraduate instruction, activities move online for Fall 2020

Citing a concerning resurgence in COVID-19 infections and related public health trends, both in Baltimore and across the nation, Johns Hopkins University announced on August 6 that it now plans for all undergraduate instruction, labs, and co-curricular activities to be held online for the duration of the fall semester.

In considering whether to have students return to campus for the coming semester, JHU weighed health and safety as the paramount concerns, university leaders said.

"Our faculty, staff, and students, including your colleagues on the Student Advisory Committee, have worked tirelessly over the past several months to explore and develop multiple options for a safe return," JHU President Ronald J. Daniels, Provost Sunil Kumar, and Vice Provost for Student Affairs Alanna Shanahan wrote in a message sent to undergraduate students.
