EmmanuelForward Update: March 31, 2021

In advance of the long Easter holiday weekend, we remind our entire community of the importance of continuing to follow guidelines and public health best practices for minimizing the spread of COVID-19. While eligible individuals are increasingly receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as the City of Boston and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, advise all to avoid gathering in large groups, to physically distance and to wear a mask.

Infection rates on our campus remain low, but there are areas of the city and state seeing increases in cases. As we move into the last weeks of the semester, we ask all to be vigilant in keeping our campus safe.

Academic Update

The College has published the 2021–2022 Academic Calendar. The calendar outlines key dates for both the Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 semesters. In light of vaccination timelines nationwide, as well as our own experience during this current semester in maintaining a safe environment for living and learning on our campus, we anticipate a full resumption of in-person activities within classes, residence halls, and other venues on campus.

Additional dates, such as the residence hall move-in schedule, will be shared at a later date.
