CSU pushes 2021 spring break back 4 weeks

Colorado State University will be keeping its weeklong spring break next semester, but it will take place in April, four weeks later than originally scheduled. 

The new dates are April 12 through April 16, 2021, according to the email announcement sent out by CSU Provost and Executive Vice President Mary Pedersen. The spring semester will still start the same day as planned on Jan. 19, 2021.

“Now CSU is seeking to match the fall percentages of in-person, hybrid and online courses offered in spring semester, according to the email.”

Similar to the fall break plans, the remainder of semester courses will be held fully online after the break, but the University will remain open. Keeping the full week of break recognizes the “potential for a high level of fatigue,” but the decision to change dates was based on public health recommendations, Pederson wrote in the email.

“This adjustment will help eliminate additional risks of exposure for the community that could result from extensive travel during spring break,” Pedersen wrote.

According to the email, CSU was trying to coordinate the break with Poudre School District, but the latter is not yet prepared to decide on its spring schedule. 

In spring of 2020, CSU decided to go fully online March 16, the first day of spring break, due to the rapid development of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now CSU is seeking to match the fall percentages of in-person, hybrid and online courses offered in spring semester, according to the email.

The University was able to offer 64% of its fall classes with all or some in-person instruction, according to a SOURCE article.

“We know these are challenging times both personally and professionally,” Pedersen wrote. “And CSU’s success is the direct result of your dedication, compassion and hard work. Thank you, Ram Family.”
