Chancellor Gow: UW-La Crosse hoping, preparing for more traditional fall semester,

Chancellor Joe Gow shared this message with the UW-La Crosse campus this afternoon:

“Dear students and colleagues:

“It’s been almost a year since COVID-19 altered our world, and I’m sure many of you are experiencing pandemic fatigue. Sometimes, it feels as if COVID-19 will never end, and we’ll never get back to the best parts of our old traditions. But I assure you there is a light at the end of the tunnel. UW-La Crosse is hoping and preparing for a much more traditional fall semester, and we need your help to make that happen.

“Here’s what fall 2021 could look like:

  • A vast majority of undergraduate courses (up to 95%) held in-person
  • A restored sense of belonging and community in our residence halls
  • A more robust complement of campus dining options
  • A return to live arts and entertainment, including music and theatre
  • An active in-person rec. and intramural sports schedule
  • A large number of choices for in-person student orgs, events and activities
  • A chance to study and hang-out with friends — and not just virtually
  • An overall renewal of the connections and traditions that make UWL so special

“None of this is guaranteed. But here’s how you can help make it happen:

“I’m so proud of the way our students, staff and faculty have persevered through this difficult year. I’m looking forward to a time, in the not-so-distant future, when we can come together and regain a sense of normalcy. It’s up to us to make those brighter days a reality. Thanks for all you’re doing!

Best wishes,


Joe Gow, Chancellor
