Protect Husson

Together we are transforming our campus to protect Husson.

At Husson University, our vision is to provide professional programs where students succeed, experiential learning is championed and global engagement is emphasized. During this unprecedented time, the health and safety of our Husson community continues to be a top priority in our decision making. 

To make sure our campus is a safe and healthy learning environment, we’ve carefully considered all of the challenges associated with a return to campus. This has been a complex process. 

To see what steps the University has taken to protect our students, faculty and staff as we returned to campus, please read our Return to Campus Plan.

As we move forward, we will provide you with as much timely information as possible. Please note the link below to updated COVID testing numbers, as well as information regarding the CARES Act.

Core Responsibilities & Guiding Principles

Husson University’s plan for return to campus Fall 2020 was guided by two key principles:

  • to protect the health and safety our community including students, faculty, staff and the greater Bangor area.
  • to return to on-campus instruction with residential opportunities for students.

To make sure our campus would be a safe and healthy learning environment, Husson created a series of task forces responsible for developing policies and protocols for different aspects of the University while complying with the health and safety guidance from the State of Maine, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other public health organizations. These task forces addressed issues affecting housing, dining services, academics, athletics, health, safety and more. Questions concerning cleaning protocols, hygiene, testing, contact tracing, isolation and quarantine, and the use of personal protective equipment, physical distancing policies, and other measures were all addressed. 

This was a complex process, as we looked at all of the anticipated challenges associated with reopening campus. Our plans were part of a much larger effort. Husson University was one of 38 colleges and universities in Maine who helped develop a reopening framework for higher education.

Flexibility, compassion, and patience continue to be needed as we face this challenge together. We want to do all that we can to reduce the risk of a COVID-19 exposure on our campus to protect Husson.
