Husky Strong Task Force

The University will offer classes 100% remotely in the month of January, returning to in-person/hybrid instruction on Monday, Feb. 1 (read more).  We are continuing the ample precautions put in place last year to ensure the safety of both students and instructors.

This website includes protocols and guidelines for both students and faculty to observe and maintain upon entering the classroom. All protocols are in alignment with or exceed Texas state standards.   New safety precautions that may be established will be published here.  Please see the Announcements section below for the latest news from the task force.

If you are an HBU student and are experiencing COVID symptoms, please see the directions for reporting symptoms.

The University’s plans to keep faculty, staff, and students safe will be based upon the following three principles:
  • The first effort must always focus on reducing the number of people in a space, proximate to each other. Lower attendance in classrooms, physical (social) distancing, virtual meetings and limiting outside visitors to campus are ways to accomplish this.
  • Once the lowest number of people has been achieved, then we have to protect them from possible contamination. Handwashing is the single most important action one can take to reduce the spread of any virus. Finally, considerations about barriers such as masks, face shields, acrylic business barriers and closed office doors are all possible actions.
  • Finally, the activity spaces must be deep-cleaned and disinfected. Aramark custodians will be using enhanced versions of existing high-touch cleaning methods and special chemicals to maintain public spaces. Employees should be ready to disinfect their own work areas such as office phones and cell phones, keyboards and desks.

The faculty and administration of HBU have worked diligently to ensure that the blend of in-person, hybrid, remote and online courses does not diminish the quality and value of a degree from HBU.  Please find information for all our Husky Family in the links below.
