CBU to resume some classroom instruction for 2020 Summer Session 2

California Baptist University plans to resume limited face-to-face classroom instruction for the 2020 Summer Session 2, officials announced today.

The notice from the CBU Executive Council comes after the university transitioned all academic programs to remote instruction and shifted many employees to working from home during the spring 2020 semester. That unprecedented move followed an order by the Riverside County Public Health Officer to close all schools, colleges and universities in the county in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The closure order for colleges and universities was rescinded May 9, 2020, permitting CBU to schedule a limited number of in-person classes for Summer Session 2 starting June 29.

CBU plans to reopen student housing and continue face-to-face instruction for the fall semester. A university task force is developing plans and recommendations to welcome students for classroom instruction during Summer Session 2 as well as for the fall terms.

“Our top priority is to provide a safe environment for students and employees as they return to campus,” said Kent Dacus, CBU vice president for enrollment and student services.

“Students are looking forward to a vibrant campus experience and we look forward to welcoming all of our new and returning students,” Dacus said.
