Since early April 2020, members of the Fall Task Forces, drawn from every area of the University, have been developing plans for a variety of scenarios in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. All along, our goal has been to ensure that we can continue to deliver an outstanding education while protecting the health and safety of all members of the university community.

Working together, we have developed a plan to return to campus this fall in a significantly modified in-person format. This plan allows us the flexibility to prioritize the health and safety of our University community while delivering the best possible academic and campus life experience for our students.

Throughout this pandemic, our decisions have been grounded in public health considerations and directives from local, state, and federal government. The State of New Jersey has taken a phased approach to reopening, which governs how we may return to campus. Currently, the State of New Jersey is in Stage 2. We will continue to act and respond in the context of this emerging guidance.

As we move forward together, we will rely upon Monmouth University’s core values, which prioritize a safe learning environment and mutual respect for each member of our community. Successful implementation of our plan is dependent on each one of us accepting the shared responsibility to keep the University community safe and healthy through our individual actions. Thank you in advance for your commitment to each other.

The University’s plans and protocols are subject to change in response to evolving guidance from local, state, and federal government and public health officials. We will continue to update this website regularly and encourage you to check back often for the most up-to-date information.
