This week, Chancellor Subbaswamy shared his reopening plan for the fall 2020 semester. As part of the plan, each student who returns to campus—either to live in residence halls or access physical resources on campus—agrees to sign the UMass Agreement, a set of behaviors to support the health and safety of themselves, their peers, the faculty and staff, and the local community.
Schedule will revert back to regular course day/time matrix with the 15-minute break between classes, with no adverse effect on health and safety.
