April 15th, 2021 — Carolina University is successfully wrapping up it’s 2020-2021 academic year. With much thanks to our students, faculty and staff, we were able to remain face to face for the entire academic year.
Carolina University had many mitigation strategies in place to ensure our campus was safe for all. Those strategies were implemented with guidance from the CDC, as well as state and local agencies. Some of our preventative efforts included mandated masking, social distancing, limited capacity in classrooms, dorms, cafeteria, gymnasium, and all public spaces. Students, faculty and staff were asked to complete a daily online self-assessment as well as report any sick symptoms to our campus nurse. We were able to provide ample quarantine and isolation rooms, as well as meal delivery services to ensure that those who were ill could remain on campus while keeping the surrounding community safe from potential virus spread.
As we plan for the 2021-2022 school year, we are continuing to monitor the state of the pandemic and maintain policies and procedures that ensure we keep our beautiful campus healthy. To date, students returning to campus this upcoming Fall 2021 will see some exciting changes including plans to open our campus and dorms to full capacity. Mask mandates and social distancing will continue to be enforced per CDC guidelines. We will continue the use of our online self-assessment tool, as well as provide isolation and quarantine rooms for our residents, as needed.
We at Carolina University look forward to another successful academic year, amidst COVID-19, in Fall 2021.
