Banana Slugs—we can’t wait for you to be back on campus. UC Santa Cruz is carefully beginning to resume some on-campus research and in the coming months plans to increase other operations.

COVID-19 requires us to rethink how we teach, research, and work. There are new policies, guidelines, and protocols that we must all follow to reduce the virus’s spread. The campus’s information dashboard provides an regularly updated status on COVID-19 at UCSC.

This site is meant to provide everyone in our campus community with crucial information as we work toward resuming more and more in-person research, teaching, and work.

This will continue to be an incredibly dynamic moment in our lives. Never before have Banana Slugs needed to move so fast and adapt so quickly. Together we are Slug strong.
