TOWSON, Md. — Towson University is planning for the return of in-person classes for fall 2020, beginning August 24.

The start of in-person instruction will be rolled out in phases combining on-campus and remote learning. The university says the basic framework will include commitments to health and safety, excellence and shared governance, student success, inclusion and equity, and fiscal responsibility.

In-person instruction will be scheduled to end in conjunction with Thanksgiving break. Classes and exams after Thanksgiving will continue in a distance format until the term ends.

Over the next two weeks, each University System of Maryland (USM) institution will announce their fall 2020 term plans. Each campus will follow general guidelines and critical factors determined by the Return to Campus Advisory Group appointed by USM Chancellor Jay A. Perman in April.
