Update Regarding Start of Fall Term: Message from the Provost to Pittsburgh Campus Faculty

August 20, 2021

Dear Pittsburgh Campus Faculty Members and Instructors,

The summer seems to have passed swiftly—and during these weeks, we have been working in real time to respond to the continually shifting landscape that the pandemic has presented to us.

I know that this remains a time of stress and unpredictability for us all. The Delta variant is proving to be a very difficult opponent in the fight to control the COVID-19 pandemic. As you may be aware, colleges and universities around the country are changing plans for fall semester teaching and learning.
