Always Forward: Returning to St. Lawrence

This website outlines St. Lawrence’s plans for the 2021-2022 academic year. Details, announcements, and updates will be added as decisions are made throughout the year. Provisions in this plan are consistent with guidance issued May 25, 2021 by the American College Health Association (ACHA) and New York State guidance, based on CDC guidance, issued June 15, 2021. The University reserves the right to decide up until August 15, that the college can proceed with plans as described.

When considering options, every decision we make is being guided by these principles:

  • The University remains committed to its mission: to provide an inspiring liberal arts experience for students from all over the world who come here with purpose and promise.
  • The safety and well-being of our entire campus community remains our top priority.
  • Decision making will be as inclusive and equitable as possible and in consultation with stakeholders and local public health officials and in accordance with guidance from federal and state agencies.
  • Flexibility and innovation will be required, which extends to our responsibility for the long-term strength of the institution.
