Moving to Phase 5 Message to Faculty and Staff from UHV President Bob Glenn

Dear UHV Faculty and Staff,

After receiving a recommendation from the UHV Reopening Task Force, the UHV Executive Committee has determined that the university should move to “normal” operations starting Monday, Aug. 2.

“Normal” operations, or Phase 5 of the UHV Phased Reopening Plan, means that UHV and UHV Katy will be fully operational with faculty and staff on campus, classes fully occupied and campus events taking place without restrictions. Many of us have already been coming to campus since the university moved to Phase 4 on June 1, but you should work with your direct supervisor to determine your unit’s safe transition back to campus.

It is important that all units come back to campus Aug. 2 to begin the fall semester. Fall classes will begin Aug. 23 with students arriving Aug. 19. Please know that we continue to monitor CDC guidelines, state mandates and community conditions to ensure everyone’s safety. Our goal is to return to campus in the safest manner possible.

Let me thank you again for your commitment to UHV’s success. Please continue to stay safe and consider being vaccinated if you are not already. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Sincerely,
Bob Glenn
