Return to Campus

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 has been a top priority in our decision making as we continue to plan for the upcoming academic year.

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. 

Together we will transform our campus to protect Husson.

As we move forward, we will provide you with as much timely information as possible. If you have any questions not answered on this page, please contact the Welcome Center at 207.941.7000 between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm.

Core Responsibilities & Guiding Principles

Husson University’s planning for return to campus Fall 2020 is 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 is 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 are addressing 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 are all being addressed. 

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

Flexibility, compassion, and patience will be needed as we come together to face this new challenge. The goal is to work towards returning to normal campus operations as soon as it is safely possible. We want to do all that we can to reduce the risk of a COVID-19 exposure on our campus to protect Husson.
