Fall 2021 Reopening

Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s planning is well underway to safely welcome more students, faculty and staff on to campus this fall.

“We at Sask Polytech are confident in our ability to support student and employee health and wellbeing, which will always be critical priorities for us. As an applied learning institution, we have successfully provided limited in-person learning throughout the past year. This experience positions us well to effectively manage safely reopening our campuses to more students and employees this fall,” said Larry Rosia, President and CEO.

Some of the new ways of doing things coming from this past pandemic year are positive and will continue.

“Faculty embraced the opportunity to be innovative over the past academic year enabling students to receive a quality educational experience through the pandemic. These instructional enhancements are being integrated in our delivery of programs in fall 2021. I am excited for the future. Incorporating additional, flexible education approaches will provide an enriched learning experience with improved accessibility and adaptability for Sask Polytech students,” said Dr. Has Malik, Provost and Vice President, Academic.

The institute continues to collaborate with the Ministry of Advanced Education, the University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan, and to follow the guidance of the Chief Medical Officer of Saskatchewan. The health, safety and wellbeing of students and employees guides our decision-making.

Sask Polytech is taking a cautious approach. While more programs will be taught primarily on campus in fall 2021, some courses within programs and some programs will continue to be delivered online where it makes sense to do so.  All student-facing services, like the library, student services, bookstores, will be available on campus to some extent in the fall.

Sask Polytech is optimistic about reopening for fall 2021, recognizing the COVID-19 landscape remains somewhat fluid. For this reason, Sask Polytech will maintain the capacity to pivot how programs are delivered dependent on any changes to the COVID-19 public health measures of the Chief Medical Officer of Saskatchewan.
