RE-OPENING OF CAMPUS FOR ACADEMIC YEAR 2021-22
AUGUST 30, 2021
Hope all of you are safe & healthy and attending the odd-semester online classes for the Academic Year 2021-22 at your respective GCRs based on your CBCS registration. While we understand your anxiety and excitement as much as we are also eagerly looking forward to receiving you on campus, there is a need to consider various factors based on experts’ advice and the surrounding circumstances with regard to the COVID_19 pandemic and its associated protocols.
Based on your online feedback and after various discussions by the Dean’s committee and with experts, we shall plan the campus reopening as below:
Online Vaccination Registration
Students were advised to vaccinate themselves during the study holidays and vacation (atleast first dose). The Management has also assured financial support for the same. We hope the vaccination is complete amongst the majority of students. To ascertain the vaccination profile, all students are advised to register at SASTRA COVID Vaccination portal beginning September 3, 2021 at www.sastra.edu. We would like to inform you that more than 90% of our teaching & non-teaching faculty have been vaccinated and we hope to complete 100% by end of September'2021.
Staggered Opening of Campus
Based on the vaccination profile, career priorities and hostel accommodation profile of various students, we shall plan a staggered opening of campus to resume the face to face classes in physical mode. The exact dates for staggered opening shall be decided on the prevailing COVID-19 conditions during the 1st week of October , 2021.
We would like to ensure a continuum of classes & exams without the need to break again and hence this calibrated approach to open the campus.
We solicit the support and understanding of all students & parents with an assurance that we shall deliver our best at all times with all safety protocols in place.
