North Greenville University announced it will resume in-person instruction at its Tigerville and Greer campuses beginning Aug. 20.
The university plans to continue its health and safety protocols, which include sanitization and managing student density in classrooms and the dining hall.
“We are excited to welcome students back to campus for the fall semester,” said Gene C. Fant Jr., president of NGU. “We will overcome these challenging days together as the North Greenville family. Every necessary precaution will be put in place to ensure the safest educational experience is available to the students we serve.”
To prepare for the fall, a new wellness center has launched, which will include an on-campus health clinic staffed professionally and mental health services offered by the university’s office of counseling services. In addition, NGU will not host summer camps to allow for its facilities to be deep-cleaned.
“Throughout the upcoming summer and academic year, university officials will continue to exercise diligence and responsiveness in determining what steps they need to take to protect all students, faculty and staff, especially high-risk populations,” Fant said. “We will have the ability to put unique precautions in place.”
The university has also developed a new program called NGUcares. This initiative pairs each university student with a personal NGUcares partner, who will remain in contact with the student throughout the summer and into the start of fall academic term.
