Guidance For Student Return To Campus For Spring Semester
Due to rising COVID-19 infection rates in Marin and surrounding counties, Dominican University of California will move to remote teaching for a large number of courses for the first two weeks of the spring semester, President Nicola Pitchford announced today. The University will return to in-person classes on Monday, January 31.
Remote delivery will not be possible for all classes, including some with labs and/or clinicals. Students will receive an email on Monday, January 10, about whether distance learning is feasible for specific courses. At this time we expect to reopen the residence halls as planned (the weekend of January 15). Students should continue to check for email updates after January 10 for more details.
The campus and its buildings remain open. Campus tours will continue as planned.
Members of the University’s Pandemic Response Team have been working throughout the holiday break to establish additional safety protocols for the campus. Additional information will be shared with campus in coming days regarding any other changes to campus guidance.
For more information about campus health and safety, including Dominican’s booster mandate, please visit our COVID-19 Campus Health and Safety page.
The presidential inauguration events scheduled for mid-January will be postponed until this spring. Tentatively, we are looking at merging the installation ceremony into Commencement weekend in May.
