4 students in a commons area with masks on


On May 17, 2021, Chancellor Donde Plowman provided the following update to the Campus Mask Policy:

Consistent with newly updated CDC guidance, fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks or social distance on campus, indoors or outdoors.  The CDC encourages individuals who are not fully vaccinated to continue wearing a mask and distancing for their own protection.  We encourage the campus community to stay up to date on CDC guidance.

For Chancellor Plowman’s full statement regarding the Campus Mask Policy, please read here.
