Blueprint for Fall 2020

CCSU BLUEPRINT for a Successful Fall 2020


Welcome to the Fall 2020 semester!

As the oldest public university in the state, CCSU has a long history of survival and success, and our deep commitment to quality, affordable, and accessible education continues this fall.

Like everyone, we had to adapt to a “new normal” and we have learned quite a bit. After campus went fully remote in March, 16 work groups began to map out how to address the academic, social, and emotional needs of the campus community. They have since developed virtual and limited in-person campus experiences using technology and creative use of physical space with health protocols in mind. We call it the CCSU Blueprint for a Successful Fall Semester. (Read the whole plan here.)

From technology upgrades and reconfigured classrooms to isolation and quarantine plans, this Blueprint informs Fall 2020 operations and events on campus. To learn more about the Fall 2020 plans in the Blueprint, keep reading or click on the links to the left. Please be aware that the plans and protocols outlined here can and must be adapted as COVID-19 conditions change. We deeply appreciate your patience and Blue Devil spirit throughout this unprecedented time and transition.

HyFlex & Remote Pathways

Classroom with desks 6 feet apart

Over the summer, the university announced its decision to offer Fall 2020 classes online and in a HyFlex format as a safety precaution amid the continuing COVID-19 pandemic. HyFlex courses are delivered in person and broadcast online at the same time by the same faculty member. If pandemic conditions require campus to close again, HyFlex course instructors will be ready to shift to an all-online format.

Student in teleconference on computer

CCSU has invested nearly $2 million in technological upgrades in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

When campus closed down in March, the CCSU Information Technology team got to work that day to make sure the campus community stayed connected. From communication and online learning software to hardware rentals and support services, IT has been at the forefront of CCSU’s transition to a hybrid educational institution.

Student Life

At CCSU we strive to provide frequent opportunities for students to form friendships and connect with the campus community. Students have, and always will, come first, and student engagement during the Fall 2020 semester is more important than ever. The Division of Student Affairs worked throughout the summer to develop virtual and limited in-person campus experiences with health and safety protocols in mind.
