UE Planning Return to Classrooms in August


The University of Evansville says it will return to “normal operations” and offer most courses in-person this fall. 


In a release, UE says the plans were developed in accordance with COVID-19 trends at the local, state, and national levels.

The university also noted the increasing availability of vaccines and reduced rates of virus transmission.

UE President Christopher Pietruszkiewicz said precautions may still be in place when the school year begins in late August, but he said the university has “every intention of providing the complete in-person college experience.”

Pietruszkiewicz also thanked everyone who helped prevent the spread of COVID-19 on the campus during the current school year.

UE said safety remains a top priority, and the university will continue to follow CDC guidelines.

The fall semester is slated to begin Wednesday, August 25th.
