COVID-19 Updates & Resources

COVID-19 Updates from IVC

November 2, 2021

Dear Student:

Our response to the pandemic continues to evolve based on science, data, and the advice of public health experts. Some restrictions and practices were lifted when the science and public health data no longer supported them. Other, new policies and facility improvements were added--so that we could continue to keep you healthy and confident in your safety on our campus as you return to physical classrooms, labs and studios. Our goal has never been to eliminate all risks but rather to prevent outbreaks of COVID-19 on our campus. Our goal has never been to take away student choices but rather to add to those choices, particularly for the vast majority of students who support health and safety measures and want to be able to choose face-to-face classes and labs again and partake in a robust campus life that has been missing for over a year and a half.

Dear Lasers,

I hope you're enjoying your summer. I wanted to update you on preparations that are currently underway for the Fall 2021 semester, where we are anticipating having more students physically returning to campus. We are actively scheduling in-person classes, student support services, activities, events, and some beloved IVC traditions as we move into the new academic year with health and safety remaining first and foremost as our top priority.
