IUA Statement 20.04.21 – IUA Universities plan for return to campus
The Presidents of the member universities of the IUA welcome the recent comments by Minister Simon Harris on seeking to maximise the return of students to campus in the autumn. The universities are united in their commitment to work towards a return to campus for the next academic year to the greatest extent possible within public health guidelines.
Universities are now actively working on plans and are hopeful that the vaccine roll out will, by the autumn, facilitate a much greater level of activity on campus than in the current year. The IUA and its university members will continue to work closely with Minister Harris and his Department and other government stakeholders, as well as staff and student representatives at national and local level, to advance plans for the autumn.
