The health and well-being of Jaguar Nation is the institution's top priority. We are dedicated to the mission of the institution and look forward returning to campus to get back to doing business in the "new normal". Campus leaders, faculty and staff have been working closely with the USG to make sure that we have a thoughtful and detailed plan for our return which includes changes in our physical workspaces, our cleaning protocols, our event planning and other parts of our daily operations.
