Dear DBU Family:

We are thrilled to have the DBU Family back on campus for the start of the fall semester.  You bring energy, excitement, and interactions we value and have missed.  We are committed to fostering our wonderful learning community throughout the semester and want to support as many opportunities for you to connect with faculty, mentors, and fellow students as possible.  However, as you may be aware, the Delta variant has caused many schools, businesses, and local governments to revisit their COVID protocols.

We continue to actively monitor this situation and feel it is important to take steps now to mitigate and help prevent the spread of COVID.   To provide further insight into our decision-making, we constantly strive to strike a balance between steps that reduce the spread of the Delta variant with efforts to further your educational and social experiences on campus.

Effective on September 7, 2021, we have decided to temporarily require face masks in all classrooms and during Chapel services.  To facilitate the in-class experience, masks are optional for faculty while they are teaching.  We are also encouraging student organizations to hold meetings outside as much as possible and for everyone to socially distance to the extent feasible when not wearing face masks.  Certain campus events may also have similar requirements depending on the nature of the events, and event organizers will communicate those requirements to attendees.
