A majority of Ryerson’s 2020 fall courses will be delivered online as Toronto continues to grapple with daily new COVID-19 infections, the university announced Friday.
Mohamed Lachemi, the school’s president and vice-chancellor, said despite the announcement, the school continues to explore a plan that would see students and faculty gradually return to campus and a mix of online and in-person classes.
« I appreciate that uncertainty is challenging for all of us; we all want to be able to make the best decisions for ourselves and our loved ones, and to do so with confidence, » Lachemi said in a written statement issued Friday.
« I can assure you that our fall term will take place. »
Lachemi said the school will offer as many campus activities as permitted by health officials, along with « an array of online extra-curricular programming and academic supports. »
