The past several months have been trying for us all, but with summer fast approaching, we are making plans to get the College off to a good start in the fall. First, let me express my gratitude to the leadership of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the City of Boston for managing the COVID-19 pandemic promptly and appropriately. Fisher will continue to follow best practices and guidelines recommended by the CDC and our government officials.
Consistent with those guidelines, after much reflection on the part of College leadership, and with the understanding that all our decisions are to some extent impacted by external circumstances beyond our control, we have decided that Fisher College will plan to return to in-person instruction in early September.
The College is currently crafting a plan of risk mitigation that includes several adjustments to our usual campus experience on Beacon Street. We still have many details that need to be addressed over the coming weeks. We will continue to keep the College community updated on our planning throughout the summer months. Be sure to check our COVID-19 information page off the Fisher College homepage for the most recent information.
On behalf of everyone at Fisher College, stay safe, and thank you for your cooperation. Working together, we can make Fall 2020 a semester of excitement and academic accomplishment for our students.
