CU Boulder is beginning the process of returning to research and creative work operations on campus starting with a soft launch May 26. 

Our plans prioritize the safety and wellbeing of our students, faculty, researchers, staff and community. Please be patient as we gradually support more research and creative work on campus. 

Note: Any work that can be done remotely should continue to be done off-campus.

Our return will take place in phases. Phase 1 (limited work on campus), starting May 26, will incrementally increase on-campus research and creative work while introducing safety and monitoring processes that can evolve as we transition to less restrictive phases over the coming year. 

Planning for Phase 2 (expanded work on campus) and Phase 3 (full operations) is already well underway. A faculty-led committee has developed general guidance and criteria for selecting what research and creative work and field work will resume through these phases.
