UMASS-Boston’s interim chancellor: We’ll be online this fall

WBUR reports the interim chancellor at UMASS-Boston believes there’s a very good reason to keep students away from campus this fall.

“We know other universities have come to different decisions, and we respect that,” Newman said. “But in very important ways — especially the extent of daily reliance on public transportation and the prevalence of students from communities most affected by COVID-19 — UMass Boston is unique. Public health officials have urged every campus to look to its particular circumstances. As a large, urban, commuter institution, we have done exactly that.”
