Dear College of Business students,
As we look ahead to Fall Semester 2020, the College of Business has been reimagining what it means for our undergraduate and graduate students to be attending the College in light of COVID-19.
First and foremost, I want you to know that the health and well-being of our students, faculty and staff is of the utmost importance. We have been working with the broader CSU campus to create innovative learning and teaching solutions that keep our community healthy while delivering the top-quality educational experience you expect. We understand that it will take time to get comfortable with social distancing on campus and the new approaches to learning we are developing. The College of Business faculty and staff are exceptional, and we are all committed to making your fall semester as engaging as ever.
We know you have questions about Fall Semester 2020 and have designed this website especially for College of Business students to provide answers! In these pages, you will find answers to the many questions you have asked regarding your return to campus this Fall, in light of COVID-19. Click through to find information about how fall classes will be delivered, the technologies that we will use to create engaging classroom experiences and the measures we are taking to protect your health when you come to campus.
Many of your questions are related to campus, more generally. You can find information about housing and dining, athletics, events and more on CSU’s COVID-19 website. This website, as well as the College of Business pages, will be updated as new information becomes available.
We are especially excited to welcome you to campus this fall, as we navigate this new learning landscape together. The entire College of Business community –faculty, academic advisors, career counselors and me – are here to support your success and help you thrive. We are all looking forward to seeing you in August. Until then, enjoy the summer!
Dean, College of Business
The Fall 2020 semester begins as scheduled Aug. 24. Rather than returning to campus following Thanksgiving, the final three weeks of the semester (Nov. 30-Dec. 18) will be held entirely online. Students will not need to be present in Fort Collins to complete the semester. Visit the University’s COVID-19 recovery page for the latest information on the Fall 2020 semester.
With the exception of classes that were originally scheduled as “online-only” courses, all College of Business courses will follow the class meeting times established in the Fall schedule. You can expect that between 50–100 percent of course discussions and lectures will be delivered in real-time during your classes’ scheduled meeting times. Depending on their format (face to face, hybrid, online), courses may meet in the previously scheduled room, an alternative (larger) classroom or online. Instructional spaces are being reconfigured to establish 6 feet of physical distancing between classroom seats.
