Announcement about Fall 2020

President Somerson just announced plans for fall semester.

RISD will open this fall with students on campus in a de-densified manner. We are pleased to have found a path to being back together next year. Students, faculty and staff on campus will operate under a multi-layered system of health and safety protocols. Core studio and shop-based courses will be held in person and other courses will take place online or in a hybrid online-plus-embodied version. While life on campus will be very different next year, we are glad we have found a path to being back together, and we look forward to welcoming back students.
