COVID-19 community update

Feb. 25, 2021

Over the past year, we have established processes and supports to address the safety and academic needs of faculty, staff and students. As we look ahead to Fall 2021, we will continue to operate with the principles of flexibility, accessibility and the safety of our community.

In the 2021-22 year, we will expand our in-person course offerings and on-campus activities in accordance with the prevalence of COVID-19 in the province and recommendations of Public Health.

Fall 2021

We are planning a safe and measured approach to increase in-person classes and on-campus activities in Fall 2021. We are working with faculty and staff to determine how to safely expand our in-person experiences on our campuses.

  • UNB campuses will be open with New Brunswick Public Health guidelines in place.
  • Programs will be delivered with a combination of in-person instruction and alternate delivery methods, with in-person classes available wherever possible.
  • Our approach may change depending on COVID-19 developments.

Visitors and Exchange Programs

Due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and travel restrictions, the following programs are suspended for Summer 2021 and Fall 2021.

  • Inbound and outbound exchange programs
  • Visiting faculty, students and researchers that require temporary foreign work permits

Together, we have overcome many challenges and shared many successes throughout this past year. It is encouraging to be taking the next steps in planning to expand in-person offerings and on-campus activities for Fall 2021. Updates on the 2021-22 academic year will be shared with you via email, UNB social media channels and unb.ca/coronavirus.

With kind regards,

Paul J. Mazerolle
President and Vice-Chancellor
