Bradley University will be returning to more normal campus operations with over 90% of classes returning to in-person face-to-face instruction. This decision was first announced on Feb. 17 with an email from university president Stephen Standifird.
Since the pandemic, there was an influx of classes that had to adjust to online and hybrid style teaching. Now courses are returning to pre-pandemic numbers of in-person classes.
In Fall 2019 — 97% of undergraduate classes were in-person, 2% were online and 1% were in a hybrid format. In the Fall of 2020, 59% were in-person, 33% were fully online and 8% were hybrid, according to Vice President for Student Affairs Nathan Thomas in an email interview.
Thomas then said the anticipated statistics for Fall 2021 are 95% in-person, 3% online and 2% hybrid.
Bradley has not specified if classes in the fall will require masks, but it has required them for summer sessions.
