Phased Reopening Update for Students from UHV President Bob Glenn

Dear Students:

I just wanted to let you know that UHV will remain at Phase 2 for the next two weeks. We are encouraged by the downtrend in COVID-19 cases within the last few days. We will continue to monitor conditions affecting both the Victoria campus and the UHV Katy instructional site and will keep you informed. But for the next two weeks, both the Victoria campus and UHV Katy will be operating at Phase 2. As we are able, we will announce any changes and keep you up to date about what is happening in Victoria and Katy. Local conditions will prevail, which could mean that the Victoria campus and UHV Katy will not be operating at the same level if conditions are different in both locations.

Some students have inquired about commencement. We continue to hear that our students want a traditional commencement ceremony rather than a virtual one. We still plan to hold a traditional commencement ceremony when it is safe to do so. Sadly, I cannot accurately predict a precise date. I will continue to update you as we have more information. Please continue to be patient with us as we chart a course forward.

As always, you may feel free to contact me directly with questions. If I cannot answer your question, I will connect you with the person who can.

Bob Glenn
President
