Adler University to Continue Virtual Instruction for Spring Term

Updated December 10, 2020

Adler University will continue virtual instruction on its ground campuses in Chicago and Vancouver through the spring and summer terms, January 4 through August 2021, due to COVID-19 precautions.

In both Canada and the United States, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve and change. After a steady decline from summer peaks, new COVID-19 cases are on the rise again in the U.S. and British Columbia, where our Vancouver Campus is located, is among the Canadian provinces entering a second wave of the pandemic

To protect the health and safety of our University community, instruction for the spring and summer 2021 terms will remain in an online format and faculty and staff will continue to work remotely. Students can expect to learn virtually for the entirety of the spring term. For the summer term, if conditions on the ground allow, we will explore optional blended (online and in-person) instruction.

Pending public health guidance and campus-specific conditions, limited access to physical campuses will be considered for students who need quiet or private places to study and complete virtual learning.

The University engaged in broad stakeholder feedback to inform the decision. This included input from current students, faculty, staff, authorizing and licensure bodies, peer institutions, and public health officials in both British Columbia and the city of Chicago.

“From all segments of the Chicago and Vancouver campuses, we continue to hear that – although remote learning, teaching, and working is not ideal – we all prefer it to ensure the health and safety of our communities,” said Adler University President Raymond E. Crossman, Ph.D.
