William Jessup University is excited to see so many lives being transformed across all of our student populations. Campus-based and distributed options are flourishing at Jessup, even as we navigate the wind-down of the spring semester during the Covid-19 pandemic. Jessup faculty and staff have been heroic in their efforts and impact upon students’ lives under the most trying of circumstances. Jessup students have shown themselves to be amazingly flexible, compassionate, and resilient during this uncertain and disruptive time; their character exemplifies the spirits of transformational leaders and Jessup Warriors.
Thankfully and mercifully, Jessup has remained free of any confirmed coronavirus cases across our student, staff, and faculty communities. Please join me in continuing to pray for God’s provision of health and safety over our students, our staff and faculty, and the Jessup community as a whole.
Many are now asking, “What’s next?” I want to be clear that our mission remains the same: “William Jessup University partners with the Church to educate transformational leaders for the glory of God.” We are a Christ-centered university, equipping men and women for God-honoring influence across every sphere and sector of our society.
So, what is next? Jessup will continue to work with our respected County and City leadership, along with our healthcare and law enforcement professionals to maintain a thriving educational environment on our campuses. Thankfully, all three of our large and spacious campus environments allow us to accomplish social distancing and other appropriate measures as needed. Our goal for summer includes the provision of science classes for a limited number of students, with appropriate social distancing and healthcare protocols, to ensure that our health sciences students in the community can be prepared for fall. It is also our strong and faithful intent to resume on-campus instruction at our Rocklin, San Jose, and Elk Grove campuses this fall.
We recognize that Jessup is not just a school, it is a community – connected by our love of learning, each other, and our Lord. It is important educationally, socially, and spiritually, for us to be together. With input from our local health officials, we are working diligently towards resuming our personalized transformational education on campus as soon as possible.
We look forward to the time when we safely gather, learn, and worship together in community…on campus and distributed…as One Jessup.
We will provide you with further details regarding our protocols and practices in the days and weeks to come. Please stay alert to our website and social media platforms for more up to date information.
