Returning to Yale: The Academic Year Ahead
Updated August 6, 2020
President Peter Salovey and Provost Scott Strobel announced on July 1 that Yale will welcome graduate and professional school students and a portion of the undergraduate population back to campus for the fall semester. The reactivation of campus-based research is under way already.
Health and safety are Yale’s paramount and continuous concerns as it pursues its educational and scholarly missions in the 2020-21 academic year. Please see the health and safety webpage for an explanation of Yale community member responsibilities in connection with returning to campus. The university’s plans adhere to the advice of public health experts and reflect the input of Yale’s own COVID-19 Contingency Planning Committees, and are in accord with Governor Ned Lamont’s roadmap for reopening Connecticut.
