Return to Campus Fall 2020

Guiding Principles

In developing our plans for returning to campus, JMU was guided by these principles:

  • The public health and well-being of our students, faculty and staff are our top considerations.
  • A hallmark of the JMU educational experience is the interaction between our students and faculty in classrooms, studios and labs.
  • An in-person classroom experience for our first-year students is the preferred choice when academic units are evaluating their fall teaching schedule to make necessary modifications.
  • In-person labs and other experiential classes are prioritized when possible.
  • Students should have the opportunity for frequent face-to-face contact with their instructors even when modifications to classes are made to increase their health and safety.
  • Class schedule modifications should allow students to make progress toward their graduation.
