First major call for the spring term: Cal State U system to remain online

The president of the California State University system indicates in a press release that CSU institutions will remain online this spring.

After extensive consultation with campus presidents and other stakeholders, and careful consideration of a multitude of factors – regarding the pandemic and its consequences, as well as other matters impacting the university and its operations – I am announcing that the CSU will continue with this primarily virtual instructional approach for the academic term that begins in January 2021, and also will continue with reduced populations in campus housing.

I believe this is the first indication from any college or university as to how it will offer instruction this spring. I recognize some institutions announced a few weeks ago that some students would be allowed on campus in the fall and a different set of students in the spring, but the underlying presumption was that some on ground instruction would take place in both terms.
