Dear Woodbury Campus Community,
With the COVID-19 pandemic affecting the world, we face unprecedented challenges to meet the multiple recommendations that affect our community, our city and our day to day lives. We know you are following media reports as the situation intensifies. As such, we would like to take this time to provide updates on Woodbury University’s plans moving forward. The State of California has implemented measures in conjunction with the advice of the CDC to halt all gatherings with 50 people or more and just yesterday, the federal government issued recommendations reducing the number to 10.
Due to these recent events, the University is taking the following steps to develop stronger social distancing protocols:
Please be on the lookout for updates on our process for providing pro-rated refunds for housing as we are working through on how to accomplish this best. These transactions will take place at a later time and we appreciate your assistance.
If you are a student who lives on campus and has left for spring break, we ask that you do not return to retrieve your belongings until notified. We are working to provide a safe and effective way to accommodate this process. Please note that your belongings are safe, and all rooms will be locked and monitored by campus security.
The health and well-being of our Woodbury community is our first priority. Due to the latest social-distancing practices, we believe that by implementing our latest changes, we can keep everyone safe.
Should you have further questions, please reach out to HelpDeskCampusSecurity@woodbury.edu
Also, visit our website www.woodbury.edu for the latest information.
Our objective is to ensure the safety and security of all members of the Woodbury family. We will continue to communicate with you on specific areas. Clearly, we are faced with fast-changing developments and recommendations from various government entities at the local, state and federal levels; and we will continue to keep you updated.
We deeply appreciate your understanding and collaboration during this time of unprecedented national emergency, both socially and economically. We are a very resourceful nation that has faced many crises in our history and I am personally confident that we shall prevail during this global pandemic.
