Spring 2022 Hybrid/Hyflex/Remote
Dear School of Education Students:
We understand that there remains a lot of uncertainty regarding the health pandemic. With the surge of a new COVID variant, we remain cautious even as we continue our important social justice work. While our plan is to return for hybrid and in-person instruction this Spring, we have made the decision to remain remote until February 7, 2022 due to the new highly contagious Omicron variant. As well, please remember that the COVID-19 vaccine and booster are required for all USF students, staff and faculty for Spring 2022.
For reminders and guidance about our return, please reference the Spring 2022 Learning via Hybrid/Hyflex, Remote and In-Person Instruction Guide. This guide will be updated frequently throughout the semester as new questions arise. Please reference it regularly.
Please also review the letter from Dean Koirala-Azad with resources and information about returning for Spring 2022 the week of February 7th.

With over 20 master's and doctoral programs, including programs at the University of San Francisco's additional locations, we welcome students who seek to make an impact and who are committed to serving those most in need.
The School presently enrolls approximately 1,100 students enrolled in five departments:

The school’s mission is to act collectively and leverage our resources in ways that are driven by our Jesuit mission and responsive to our constituents’ needs. We strive to have a measurable impact in schools and communities, particularly for those most affected by injustice.
The University of San Francisco was established in 1855 by the Jesuit Fathers as San Francisco's first institution of higher learning. The university has grown from a one-room schoolhouse to become San Francisco's largest independent university. Founded in 1947, the University of San Francisco School of Education has driven new ways of thinking about Education since its inception. Today, the University of San Francisco School of Education is an urban destination that draws inspired scholars and social justice advocates to our credential, master's and doctoral programs.
