COVID-19 & the CU Anschutz Community
May 15, 2020
A Message from Chancellor Elliman
As our campus begins a slow and cautious return to campus, I ask you to take a moment to familiarize yourself with our new return to campus website
The site provides an overview of our safety protocols and guiding principles for a gradual return. We will build on the resources there as plans progress, and I encourage you to visit regularly for the latest information.
Please note that these key operational decisions remain in place:
- You must be formally invited to return to campus. Those individuals or units who are invited will be contacted directly with detailed instructions, and a formal review and approval process is in place.
- All activity that can be accomplished remotely should continue to be done remotely, including working, teaching and learning, meetings and events, data research and administrative activities.
- Our campus remains effectively closed to all but a limited number of areas for which select in-person activity has been deemed essential.
- Only those individuals approved as critical should be on campus at this time.
We have developed highly tailored plans and safety protocols for a gradual, phased return to the CU Anschutz Medical Campus, often exceeding state and local guidance for protection against the virus. These Friday updates and our own website are the best
sources for the latest information on campus operations.
Thank you for doing your part to stay healthy and stay informed. We look forward to the day when we’re all back on campus safely together, and your partnership will help
make that day possible.
We are excited to celebrate the Class of 2020 next Thursday and Friday, and the entire campus community is invited to take part. A special virtual ceremony will take place Friday, May 22, at 9:30 a.m., and details on all of our recognition events
are on the spring 2020 commencement website. You can download celebratory Class of 2020 Zoom backgrounds to
help our campus community get into the commencement spirit. Join us as we welcome our newest graduates into our distinguished alumni community.
