Back2BU Faculty Support

For more information on BU’s plans to repopulate our campuses, please visit the Back2BU website.

As BU resumes in-person, residential learning this fall and you return to your classrooms and lab spaces, we know there are many questions you may have. From resources to support your teaching to updated public health measures the University is instituting to help ensure the health of our community, we are committed to your success and safety this semester and always.

Below is a collection of resources and FAQs that we hope are helpful as you transition back to teaching and research on campus. We will continue to develop this page as more resources and answers come online, and also encourage you to review the updated Work Life for Faculty & Staff website, which will communicate the latest changes in our plans for campus operations and safety protocols in the summer and fall semester and a healthy return to in-person learning on campus.
