PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The University of Portland is planning to reopen for its fall term.
University officials said Tuesday it’s planning to open on Aug. 17.
In-person classes will resume on Aug. 24 after a week of campus move-ins, orientations, coursework introductions and other training sessions, KOIN-TV reported.
The university says its traditional fall break in October will be eliminated and all in-person classes will end by Nov. 25 ahead of Thanksgiving. Final exams will be taken online.
University President Rev. Mark L. Poorman said the on-campus experience will be very different for students with strict health and safety protocols including social distancing, sanitization measures and face masks.
Three task forces will create and execute a full plan for the university’s reopening.
