SU President's Briefing – November 18, 2021

Salisbury University President Charles Wight delivered a live, virtual briefing on Thursday, November 18. Highlights included:

  • SU’s COVID-19 case and positivity rates remain low. Please continue the behaviors that have kept the campus safe, particularly heading into Thanksgiving break. This includes observing the SU face mask policy, which remains in place for the remainder of this year, but will be reconsidered by the University Health Team for spring 2022.
  • SU continues to offer the COVID-19 vaccine and boosters on campus for students and employees. SU also will participate with the Wicomico Health Department to offer the vaccine on campus for children ages 5-11. Details will be sent to SU community members via email.
  • SU recently took part in the annual international education celebration, co-sponsored by the U.S. Departments of Education and State. SU welcomed international students back to campus this fall, while others are taking SU classes remotely from their home countries. Study abroad for SU students also returned this fall and is expected to increase in the spring.
  • SU Athletics continue this weekend, as football opens the first round of playoffs against Johns Hopkins University, and women’s basketball and the men’s and women’s swimming teams take on Goucher College. The field hockey team also advanced to the second round of NCAA Division III championship play.
