Each Harvard School and Unit adopted a variety of adaptable approaches, return-to-campus dates, and plans for the academic year based on their respective needs and priorities to welcome back students for as much in-person learning as possible.
Our ability to safely resume in-person academics, research, work, and study is based on public health conditions and our collective adherence to the proven health and safety measures, testing, and exposure, quarantine, and isolation protocols we have implemented across campus.

Harvard’s Guiding Principles
Our adaptable, multi-pronged approach for reopening on-campus activities is guided by two core principles:
- Health and safety: We will continue to prioritize the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and surrounding community in every decision we make
- Education and research: We are committed to ensuring that the teaching, learning, and research of our students, faculty, and postdoctoral fellows will continue at the highest levels of excellence. Every decision we make must be in service to this mission.
