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.

DBU Family:

Thank you for your continued commitment to DBU’s Core Responsibilities and doing your part to slow the spread of COVID-19. We currently have 31 active reported cases of COVID-19 among the student body. All of these students are currently isolating off campus and recovering well. I am pleased to report that we have no students in the hospital due to COVID-19, and most students only have very mild symptoms with 1-2 students having symptoms that would be comparable to a tough case of the flu. A number of students who had COVID-19 earlier in the semester have recovered and are cleared by our Health Services and Student Affairs team to return to campus.

DBU staff are in touch with all of the students with COVID-19 on a regular basis and providing care and support for them. I know our faculty are also working with these students and those in quarantine due to direct exposure to help them continue with their academic responsibilities while learning remotely. We determined that an aggressive quarantine plan for our exposed students was the best way to prevent a large outbreak on campus, and to this point of the semester, this strategy has been effective and keeping directly exposed students learning remotely and out of the normal campus circulation during their 14-day quarantine period.
