July 2020 

July 15, 2020

With the Fall semester fast approaching, our institutions are hard at work finding ways to safely return students to campus while keeping the spread of COVID-19 down. 

In this digest, we have included updates on each institution's plans for the fall, as well as information on NCCEP's upcoming GEAR UP Summer School. Please see below for more information, and stay healthy! 
Plans for Fall covid

As we get closer to the Fall semester, our NSHE institutions have been making plans for students to resume instruction while staying safe. Most institutions including UNR, UNLV, NSC, and WNC have implemented a mix of online and in person classes for students to attend, while others such as TMCC have opted for primarily online instruction. For more information on each institution's plans for reopening in the fall, please see the links below: 


School districts across Nevada are also continuing to prepare for the school year by presenting their reopening plans to their school boards and submitting them to Nevada Department of Education. Please see the links below for more information on recent school board meetings and town halls of our school districts:
