JEFFERSON CITY — Carson-Newman University announced its plans to resume classes and residential living for the fall semester.
Classes will begin Aug. 19. Like many universities, in-person instruction for Carson-Newman will conclude by Thanksgiving and resume with online instruction for the remainder of the semester. Dining and residence halls will remain open.
Though planning continues, the university’s fall plan encourages every member of the campus community to conduct daily health monitoring, practice physical distancing, wear masks when appropriate, practice good personal hygiene, and report symptoms or possible exposure. The university has also implemented enhanced cleaning protocols.
Carson-Newman will make several accommodations to retain in-person instruction while meeting physical distancing requirements. These measures include moving sizeable courses into large classrooms, dividing sections into smaller meeting groups during the week, and providing hybrid-learning opportunities to enhance face-to face-courses.
Fall break has been canceled. The university is also encouraging students to limit travel and remain on campus during the fall semester.
