Campbell University will remain in remote learning mode through Tuesday, Jan. 25, President J. Bradley Creed announced on Jan. 14. All classes will remain online/virtual for all undergraduate, graduate and professional programs and run through Jan. 25.
The first day of in-person instruction is scheduled for Jan. 26. Graduate and professional students in the Divinity School, the College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences and the School of Osteopathic Medicine will receive more specific guidance from program directors on additional schedule modifications.
“On behalf of the leadership team at Campbell University, I want to thank our students; the parents and family of our students; and our faculty, staff and alumni for their patience and support as our leadership team thoughtfully works to make decisions that are in the best interests of our entire University community,” said President J. Bradley Creed.
This new announcement follows a Jan. 4 notice that Campbell would begin the spring semester with remote learning and other safety measures. COVID-19 cases in the state and region are at record levels due to the highly contagious omicron variant. Campbell leadership is planning the return to campus on Jan. 26 to coincide with public health models that show the current wave of COVID-19 cases peaking in North Carolina in mid- to late-January.
Residential students may return to Campbell’s main campus in Buies Creek any time before Jan. 26.
Other guidelines and restrictions, courtesy of the Health & Safety Committee, are listed below:
