Trine University has modified its fall semester schedule for main campus undergraduates, with classes beginning Aug. 10 and ending Nov. 25.
The schedule change does not impact students at Trine's Fort Wayne Center for Health Sciences or those enrolled in TrineOnline. Students at the Fort Wayne Center for Health Sciences will start Aug. 17, and TrineOnline students will begin Aug. 24.
In emails sent to employees, students and parents, Trine President Earl D. Brooks II, Ph.D., said the change is an effort to limit disruptions and provide the highest level of safety for the campus community in the wake of this spring's COVID-19 outbreak.
The university intends to welcome students back to campus to start the fall semester, in accordance with federal, state and local health guidelines. There will be no fall holidays or breaks in the schedule.
As the summer progresses, the university has implemented enhanced cleaning and disinfection procedures, and is modifying classrooms and other on-campus spaces to ensure social distancing. The university, in partnership with Cameron Memorial Community Hospital, also is expanding its student health center.
Measures to prevent or impede the transmission of COVID-19 this fall will include strongly encouraging face coverings in public spaces, providing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), maintaining proper physical distancing, and, if necessary, COVID-19 testing and contact tracing.
