Messages to Campus

I hope you are keeping well and enjoying the first few weeks of summer.  The Acadia team continues to work diligently to plan for a safe and smooth return to your studies and campus this fall. As a result, I am pleased to encourage you to visit Acadia’s Student Life Page to review our Fall 2020 course formats and begin to familiarize yourself with what campus life could look like this fall.

I am writing today to provide some important updates and share some thoughts about where we are in our COVID-19 response and the financial impacts it is having on our university.

I know that these past few weeks have been increasingly stressful as we have announced our preferred intentions for the Fall and, at the same time, consider the financial impacts of the pandemic. I want to thank each and every one of you for all the work you are doing as we prepare to re-open the campus and offer our academic programs in the Fall.

We are still working on many of the details, but we are excited by our plans to welcome you to campus in September. We are discussing our plans with health and safety experts to ensure all the necessary precautions are put in place. We are equally committed to making the experience as positive as possible for those who will be unable to join us in person.

Dear Acadia Students,

Whether you are planning on attending Acadia for the first time in September or returning to Acadia to continue your studies, I understand that you are keen to know what approach Acadia will take for the fall term. I hope that you and your families and loved ones are all keeping well and healthy as we continue to live under these extraordinary conditions. I am pleased to be able to share some important information with you about Acadia’s intentions and preferred path forward.
