La VerneSafe Return

Preparing for the Return to Campuses

This document is the university’s official COVID-19 prevention plan, developed after a comprehensive risk assessment of all work areas, work tasks, and student interactions. It is in full compliance with all federal, state, and regional public health mandates, and in some areas exceeds guidelines and recommendations.

The University of La Verne’s plans for a safe return to campus prioritize the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff while also honoring our historical commitment to a student-centered and personalized education.

Until the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health grants approval for expanded on campus operations for institutions of higher education, the university will adhere to the department’s directive that colleges and universities in Los Angeles County will not be able to resume all in-person academic instruction. Operations at regional campuses will be evaluated based upon state guidelines as well as the guidelines of the county in which each campus is located.

Upon state and county approval, the University of La Verne will resume a phased return to face-to-face and on-campus operations, and this plan will guide that phased approach.

Additional information about ongoing remote university operations, including resources for students, faculty, and staff, is available at
