Behind the Decision-Making
Biola is making decisions based on government guidelines, expert input and reliable information. Our specially commissioned Biola University Reentry Team (BURT) is composed of highly qualified academic, health, logistic, counseling, science, safety and communication leaders — whose experience includes infectious disease research with the Centers for Disease Control.
On Tuesday, December 8, the Board of Trustees met to discuss a plan put forth by Biola’s administration, a plan developed in consultation with representatives from across the university and based on lessons learned from those outside of Biola’s community. In its meeting, the Board approved a motion to begin a safe return to campus in the spring 2021 semester.
Coping With COVID-19
Our faculty and staff have produced a range of videos and articles to serve the Biola community and beyond — offering biblically grounded guidance on topics like mental health, relationships, job-hunting, remote church and more.
