I hope everyone is keeping safe and healthy. In Hyde Park, NY, we are busy preparing our campus for the return of students resuming their Spring semester lab courses starting in August. Meanwhile, our students and faculty at our Greystone and San Antonio campuses have truly embraced our CIA SAFE guidelines (details below) and have been hard at work in this new normal since June 15.
As has been the case since this Spring, this page is intended to provide updates on current COVID-19 protocols and our campus reopening plans. Of particular note:
As always, the health, safety, and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff are our top priority. As such, we have adopted a closed campus policy. Our campus restaurants and public programs will remain closed for the time being and outside visitors are not permitted on campus.

Our reopening plan, CIA SAFE (Shared Accountability for Everyone)—focuses on ensuring the health and safety of our entire campus community—students, faculty, and staff. The following highlights some of its core components:
CIA academic campuses (Hyde Park, NY; St. Helena, CA; and San Antonio, TX) will remain closed to the public and other visitors until further notice. This includes outside guests and visitors to residence halls.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Students and employees will be required to wear masks in all classrooms, labs, and common areas. Masks are also required in all outdoor public places.
