As the government takes a phased approach to re-opening the province, Laurier has been working to develop a detailed and integrated plan for the resumption of university activities as permitted by provincial health guidelines.
The Pandemic Recovery Steering Group (PRSG) oversees the development of recovery plans for the university's operations – in support of the academic mission, and with the health and safety of our students, staff and faculty at the forefront.
The university’s return-to-campus planning and assessment activities are a dynamic, evolving process. Any functions or services that can continue to work remotely and effectively from home will continue to do so for the foreseeable future to limit the number of people on our campuses.
The PRSG developed a COVID-19 scaling framework to guide safety planning, decision making and priority setting in regards to campus operations and activities. The framework identifies four levels – low, moderate, high and critical – independently applied to ten campus categories.
The university is planning for and preparing for a return to our campuses in Fall 2021 within public health guidelines. The Winter, Spring, Intersession and Summer 2021 terms will take place primarily remote and online. Learn more:
