Bay Path Responds to COVID-19
It was early March, and Bay Path was nearing the midpoint of the 2020 spring semester. Suddenly, and seemingly at lightning speed, the University had to pivot in our operations to address the COVID-19 pandemic. As news from the state and health organizations on guidelines for the pandemic began to emerge, a COVID-19 task force was immediately established, and an online resource center was established on our website.
At the time of this publication, all classes are being held online, and all campus facilities are closed. Faculty and staff are working remotely, and only essential personnel are allowed on campus.
In addition, teams are working to develop a thoughtful and strategic plan that is looking at a variety of learning models, as well as the necessary steps and options to reopen Bay Path campuses, including this fall, when circumstances are favorable. We are looking at all options. At the same time, we recognize the unpredictability of the pandemic, and uppermost in our decisions are the safety and wellbeing of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and visitors.
