DBU COVID-19 Response and Protocols

In an effort to maintain the momentum we are experiencing, the DBU Administration has have made the decision to not have a Fall Break this semester and modify the Fall Break Mini schedule. For more information, see our latest updates.

Please read DBU's latest Clery Act Fall 2020 Notice for the entire DBU Community.

All students, faculty, and staff MUST fill out a Daily Health Check that will allow them access to campus activities.

DBU is blessed with small class sizes and a magnificent campus, giving us the ability to offer students in-person classes while maintaining social distancing guidelines. We will be asking all students, faculty, and staff to wear face coverings while in DBU buildings when they cannot maintain at least a 6-foot distance.

DBU is also offering hy-flex and hybrid classes so that students can have the classroom experience for those who want the classroom experience while minimizing close contact with others.

In addition, we have a variety of online classes for students who prefer that format. In fact, DBU offers over 30 degree programs entirely online and is poised to provide a seamless transition to online classes should the State mandate we do so.

Please continue to visit this website for further information and campus updates throughout the Summer and Fall. We are excited to welcome you to campus and are grateful for the support and steps each of you will take to help ensure a successful and safe Fall 2020 semester.

Dear DBU Faculty and Staff:

By all measures, you have done a tremendous job in following DBU’s health and safety policies. We are proud of the combined efforts you have taken to help ensure a successful fall semester. As we continue to progress through the semester, we want to provide an update on our current case count and how we can best respond to active cases of COVID and quarantine on campus.

Currently, there are 29 active COVID cases in the campus community, and, because of our aggressive contact tracing and quarantining, we have approximately 100 students in quarantine. As we’ve seen cases in Dallas County rise, we expect to see increases on-campus as well and generally, we anticipate having times of increase and decrease throughout the semester. In any event, these numbers are still lower than many of our sister institutions and we know that each of you are doing your part to help flatten the curve.
