Dear Brockport Community:
Yesterday, New York State opened COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to those aged 16 or older. This is a significant milestone in our battle against this pandemic. A survey has gone out to our community to determine interest in receiving the vaccine on the SUNY Brockport campus. We have already received our first shipment of the vaccine and will begin offering a clinic next week. I’m grateful that we are playing a role in helping more and more of our community to become vaccinated.
Now it’s time to look toward the future. SUNY Brockport is committed to restoring the vibrant campus experience our students expect and deserve for the fall 2021 semester.
As such, Academic Affairs is planning to offer almost 100 percent of 100 and 200 level courses in a traditional face-to-face format this fall. In addition, we are planning to offer at least 75% of our 300 and 400 level courses face-to-face. Many graduate level courses have long been offered online and will continue to be offered in that format moving forward.
Our undergraduate students choose SUNY Brockport because they are seeking a high quality, dynamic, face-to-face educational experience inside our classroom and an enriching experience outside of our classrooms. Now that the COVID-19 vaccine is widely available, we believe we will be able to meet those expectations fully once again come fall.
In order to make this a reality, however, we must continue to remain vigilant in the fight against COVID-19. This pandemic is not yet over. Please continue to wear your face coverings, wash your hands, avoid large gatherings and get vaccinated! Together, we can Protect the Nest.
