Activities and Events
It is important to understand that fall semester 2020 will begin, and perhaps remain, unlike any other semester at BYU. As part of a phased approach to returning to BYU, there will be significant restrictions on activities and events. The beginning of fall semester will include a very limited number of on-campus gatherings and events that will be planned in accordance with the state of Utah's Phased Health Guidelines. Students should also be aware of and comply with state and county restrictions on the size and nature of social gatherings as they plan their own activities.
If circumstances allow, some additional activities and events may be approved. Event organizers must receive initial approval from the responsible vice president before beginning the Event Approval Process through BYU Risk Management and Safety. Final approval may be granted by the responsible vice president once the process is complete.
Determinations for when and how BYU will resume public events, including BYU Arts performances and BYU Athletics events, will be made in accordance with Utah's Phased Health Guidelines and guidance from other external partners such as the NCAA and athletic conferences.
The BYU Education Week program initially scheduled for August 17-21 has been changed to an online-only format. Information regarding the dates, times and scope of the online delivery will be posted on the Education Week website when details are available.
