Return to Campus Guidebook

3 Dear DBU Family: I am thrilled to welcome you back to DBU for what is certain to be a fall semester unlike any other in DBU’s history. Although we’ve experienced significant changes these past few months, DBU remains committed to offering you robust and vibrant experiences this coming year. Because your health and safety are a primary consideration for us, daily life at DBU will look different. What has not changed is our commitment to the excellence of your education, your academic progress, your spiritual growth, and your ability to connect with fellow students and faculty members on campus. You will be starting this semester amid health rules, practices, and policies that none of us could have expected we would need but are vital for our DBU Family to persevere in our mission this fall. This guide will walk you through many of the requirements and expectations for campus life. I know it can be overwhelming, but I want to encourage each of you that you will not be doing it alone. We have new opportunities to love our neighbor during this time, and we can do it together as a DBU family. Despite these changes, there is still so much to be thankful for and look forward to this year. Classes will take different forms, but your ability to learn will continue. Chapel services will change, but your opportunity to worship will endure. Social activities will look different, but your engagement and connection will continue to thrive. We are here to support and pray for you. I invite you to watch this short video with remarks from me to learn more about fall semester. Sincerely, Adam C. Wright, Ph.D. President, Dallas Baptist University COVID SAFE RETURN CAMPUS GUIDE
