UT’s mission has always been to unlock the potential of our students and prepare them to change the world. This mission will continue during the fall as we educate students, and they work toward earning their degrees.
As the university responds to the COVID-19 crisis, our goal is to reopen the Forty Acres in the fall semester, likely with some courses and activities held in person and others online as dictated by health and safety concerns. We expect to announce these plans by the end of June.
President Gregory L. Fenves and Interim President Designate Jay Hartzell are leading a university-wide executive committee to develop these plans. They will work with medical professionals, city and state officials, students, faculty members, staff members and off-campus partners to answer key questions.
