Joseph Jones, Ph.D., president of Fresno Pacific University, presented this video message this week regarding current plans for Spring 2021. Leaders continue to work to balance the university’s committed to the safety and well-being of faculty, staff and students as well as providing a quality education across five campuses in four different Central Valley counties.

“It is our hope that by exercising great prudence; following county and state guidelines; exuding a sense of shared responsibility for ourselves, our students and our co-workers; and using the beautiful and spacious outdoor space that marks many of our university sites, we can slowly and safely phase in a return-to-work-and-study plan. We believe such a plan will allow us to offer the kinds of experiences our students want and deserve. Let’s all work together to do this as carefully and successfully as possible,” Jones says.
