HAMMOND & WESTVILLE -Purdue University Northwest has announced it is planning for an in-person fall semester. According to a university news release, Provost Kenneth Holford initially shared in early February that administration expects to see a return to robust operations of the university with significant interactive classroom experiences by the beginning of the fall 2021 semester.
The release says the university's decisions have always, been based first on the health and safety of the university community and that the Senior Leadership Team continues to closely monitor the community spread of COVID-19.
The university urges its community to remain collectively vigilant to university protocols and to continue to protect each other.
PNW administration expects that some of the measures to protect public health will continue in the fall and that most people who wish to be vaccinated will be by that time.
Classes will begin August 23 with priority registration for fall semester beginning March 29th.
Indiana University Northwest announced last week that it would be returning to in-person learning as well.
