Letter from the President on the Campus Life Plan

In March, when COVID-19 began to spread across the country, BJU — like most other universities — transitioned to online instruction. Faculty quickly changed their method of teaching, students adapted to a new way of learning and we completed the semester successfully.

Now that a new academic year is about to begin, our faculty and students have a fresh appreciation for learning in community. They want to enjoy the full student experience available through on- campus, in-person classes and a full complement of student activities.

To make this happen, we have put in place a BJU Campus Life Plan we hope will enable us to complete the semester on campus. The plan has been developed in conjunction with our BJU medical experts, local and state regulations and guidelines issued by the CDC.

Our priority is to guard the health of the entire campus community. This will involve everyone taking personal responsibility to practice safe hygiene, monitor their personal health and exercise good judgment in all activities and interactions.

Practical measures for mitigating COVID-19 will be implemented across campus — in classrooms, the dining common, residence halls, chapel, The Den — everywhere students are together. These measures will be updated as conditions change.

Thank you for doing your part to contribute to the health and safety of the BJU community and to a successful fall semester.
