Viking Flex Plan — Fall 2020

Augustana University is committed to providing an in-person learning experience for students this fall. This experience, called The Viking Flex Plan, will incorporate both face-to-face learning as well as an integrated virtual learning component in many classes. The Viking Flex Plan is being implemented for the health and safety of all of our students, staff and faculty, as well as to create the best possible curricular and co-curricular experience on campus.  The plan includes the ability for students to live in campus housing, with a number of health and safety protocols implemented across campus, including frequent cleaning, physical distancing, air quality controls, and mask recommendations or requirements in specific spaces. Viking Flex provides for flexibility, ongoing analysis, and is subject to adjustments due to the dynamic nature of pandemic and in order to keep our community safe.
