California State University of Long Beach President Jane Close Conoley announced that the university will be continuing virtual learning throughout the Spring 2021 semester.
“Earlier this afternoon, Chancellor Tim White shared that the California State University system will continue with a primarily virtual environment this coming spring. Arriving at a decision now is appropriate because, with fall semester now well underway, our attention has turned to planning for our next semester,” said Conoley in her email to all employees and students in an email sent out September 10.
The immediate future of the intercollegiate athletics program and the May commencement ceremony remains unclear.
“I know so very well that this pandemic has challenged you over these past months, and it will continue to challenge us as a university community in the months to come. But we’re up to it. We continue to make possible what, at times, felt impossible. You have my gratitude for coming together as One Beach, and for staying together in common purpose through the end of this pandemic, “ said Conoley.
