Back2BU Faculty Support

For more information on BU’s plans to reopen, please visit our Back2BU website.

As BU resumes in-person, residential learning this fall and you return to your classrooms and lab spaces, we know there are many questions you may have. From digital resources to support your teaching through the Learn from Anywhere model to new measures, guidelines, and accommodations the University is instituting to help ensure the health of our community, we are committed to your success and safety this semester and always.

Below is a collection of resources and FAQs that we hope are helpful as you transition back to teaching and research on campus. We will continue to develop this page as more resources and answers come online, and also encourage you to review this BU-specific PDF guidebook?helpful, which further details the phased return to on-campus work.
