A Message from President Valerie Nurr’araaluk Davidson
Dear APU community,
Quyana (thank you) for your patience and flexibility during the past several months. Faculty and staff committees have assessed all of our campus programs and, with input from public health experts, we are ready to announce that APU plans to open campus for instruction through both face-to-face and distance delivery for the Fall semester. Our goal is to make our educational programs accessible and to make working and living on campus as safe as possible. This is a shared responsibility.
The Campus Reopening Plan outlines the activities and protocols we will employ to mitigate risk. We recognize that some members of the APU community will not be able to come to campus because those in their homes or communities are at high risk. We will work with individual students and employees to accommodate telecommuting when necessary. We believe we can safely restart activities on campus through comprehensive planning and individual effort. Please take the time to inform yourself and others about our new campus protocols.

Staff will return to campus in three stages. This staged approach is currently underway, with a number of senior staff and others now working on campus. Stage 2 will expand the on-campus staff presence, with senior management approving teams and employees to return beginning in early August. We aim to have all staff returning to onsite work in Stage 3, at a date to be later determined.
Some of us are excited to return to campus. Some of us are anxious. This plan is designed to allow for renewed engagement on campus while protecting one another and our families. We are grateful to reconnect and move forward together through these challenging times. We are a creative, caring, and resilient community, and I am confident that we will be able to implement our plan and have a strong Fall semester.
Quyana for all you do for APU,
Valerie Nurr’araaluk Davidson
