To help us all navigate the necessary changes, we've outlined ways to keep yourself and our community healthy.

Most important, we need to remember to do all we can to Protect Our Herd.

From the Chancellor – Our COVID-19-ready return to campus

Throughout the last few months, under guidance from our world-class research and innovation teams in partnership with our dynamic and dedicated faculty and staff, we worked together to create, implement and now execute our Road Map to Fall.

A COVID-19-Ready campus experience and flexible academic instruction modalities are top priorities as we welcome Buffs back to campus for the fall 2020 semester. None of our in-person learning is possible without upgrades to our buildings and sanitation. We have spent millions of dollars investing in personal protective equipment, air filtration systems and enhanced cleaning and disinfection protocols.

Serving the public good is more vital now than ever. With that in mind, we've implemented changes to the student code of conduct and introduced a public health awareness campaign, "Protect Our Herd", as a daily reminder of the basic actions we all must take to ensure the safety of our community.

This is just a fraction of the work we’ve done over the last few months and moving forward we will continue to be flexible and adapt as new data, innovations and capabilities become available.

Learn more about our COVID-ready return to campus plan from Chancellor DiStefano at the link below.

Fake News. 🗣
New research shows when it comes to social media, Facebook is the preferred platform and the further out on the liberal-conservative spectrum you are, the more likely you are to share it.
But why?

Who shares the most fake news? New study sheds light

Extremely conservative Facebook users are responsible for sharing the bulk of fake news, but extreme liberals are responsible for a good chunk of it, too, according to a new study. Those who lack trust in the media, and in society in general, are also more likely to share it.
