For the first time since the University moved to remote instruction one week after the first day of class due to COVID-19 outbreaks, the DTH talked to Chancellor Kevin Guskiewicz over Zoom to discuss the fall semester and plans going forward. "I don't regret any decisions. We've learned a lot — and there's some areas that we know, as we reflect back on the development of that roadmap and the implementation of it in the start of the semester, that I believe we'll look closely at and and modify as we make plans for the spring semester." Guskiewicz said he hopes to bring students back on campus in the spring, and a group is being assembled to begin making plans.
