Message from VP of Student Life – Sept. 4

Dear Students,

Thank you for your vigilance to curb the spread of COVID-19. I am proud of the resilience shown by all of you who continue following our UA Health and Safety Guidelines as we strive to complete a safe fall semester.

Two weeks ago, we implemented a 14-day moratorium on in-person student organized events. This moratorium will be extended through September 13.

We will continue to evaluate our policies and protocols as we meet with student leaders and follow the guidance of our Health and Safety Task Force.

If all of us continue to do our part, I believe we will get to a position to consider relaxing some aspects of the moratorium.

Please know your efforts are making a difference as you:

  • properly wear a mask
  • practice social distancing
  • refrain from gathering in large groups

During this Labor Day weekend, we hope you will responsibly connect with your roommates or a small group of friends (3-4 people) and explore our campus and state. Here are a few opportunities the Student Life team has put together for you to consider:

Over the past few weeks, I have talked to many of you, answering your questions and concerns through town hall sessions, meetings, and phone calls. Your investment in our campus community is what makes the Capstone so special, and I will continue to address your questions with clear and transparent answers.

Thank you again as we all do our part to stay Tide Together.


Dr. Myron Pope
Vice President for Student Life
