Phase 2 and the Fall Semester

July 15, 2020

The July summer school session began this week, and we're excited because this term represents our partial return to in-person classes on campus. Under the implementation of the Nevada Governor’s Phase 2 plan, the College is offering classes in a variety of formats. A return to our in-person classes has, of course, come with certain restriction such as required face coverings, frequent sanitizing of surfaces, hand washing, social distancing, etc. All of the things that we have grown familiar with.

While the COVID-19 pandemic continues around the world, online classes remain a major feature of our class offerings. Our College of Business faculty are knowledgeable and experienced in providing the best of online education. Many of them lead online classes in our nationally recognized Online Executive MBA program, have facilitated the creation of other online graduate degrees or taught our core undergraduate business courses in an online format for years.

In bridging the difference between in-person and online, we have developed very robust and innovative practices in hybrid course offerings that blend online with resident instruction via parameters around participants, content and timing. We plan to continue this variety of course offerings in the fall as we provide the high quality of business education that our students expect and deserve. Our Student Success Center also continues to offer services at maximum capacity in everything ranging from enrollment and advising to career services and placement. 

Thank you to all of our outstanding students, faculty and staff who continue to deliver on making the educational experience in the College of Business at the University of Nevada, Reno globally recognized.

    In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and in compliance with Centers for Disease Control, Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health, and Washoe County Health District guidelines, Chancellor Reilly and Governor Sisolak's executive orders, the University has instituted alternative operations. As a result, the University has suspended until further notice all Major Events and Events as defined in UAM 5,301, Posting, Distributing and Exhibiting of Public Announcements (UAM 5,305), Commercial Filming, Videography and Photography (UAM 5,306), and any other use of University space.

  • Are the Nevada Global Business Programs canceled?

    Yes. After considerable thought and deliberation, we have come to the difficult decision to cancel all 2020 Nevada Global Business trips. The safety and security of our students, faculty and staff is our highest priority. Because novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to have devastating effects on communities across the country and the world, University and College of Business leadership believe this is a necessary decision.

  • Will students have access to in-person resources at The College of Business once all classes transition to online instruction after fall break?
