The Path Forward

We are at our best when we are in community together, and it is for that reason we are pivoting toward bringing students back to campus in the fall, with safety as our highest priority.

The UD Path Forward Task Force, supported by several working groups, state and local health officials and an expert medical panel, developed the plans below following the University's guiding principles. The Task Force also developed the plans after several weeks of consultation with constituents across campus, which included a survey and town hall meetings.
