At DeSales University, it is our priority to keep our students, faculty, staff, visitors, and their families healthy, especially in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. This Return-to-Campus video playlist highlights key points on how we keep our campus community safe to every extent possible. The plan will only succeed with the support of each and every member of the DeSales University community students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
