BU Enters Phase2

Earlier this week University Provost Jean Morrison and SVP for Operations Gary Nicksa announced the University is entering Phase 2 of its four-phase reopening process. New protocols, requirements and advisories for BU employees can be found in the Back to On-Campus Work Guide, Phase 2 Re-Entry, Summer 2020 edition, published on the Back2BU website.


The GMS Masters graduate program proposals for Learn from Anywhere have been approved and are posted on the GMS website and Back2BU website for graduate programs.


Today, the Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine officially opens its brand-new Simulation Learning Center (SLC), located on the third floor of 635 Albany Street. The new SLC has 117 student simulation stations and two teacher stations, but under current physical-distancing guidelines, capacity will be limited to 50 individuals. The new SLC is equipped with state-of-the-art dental and digital technology, and will greatly enhance the preclinical pre- and postdoctoral educational experience of the school’s students and residents.
