Spring 2021 Announcement
February 17, 2021
Dear Sofia Community Member:
We are writing to let you know that all in-person classes for Spring 2021 scheduled for the Palo Alto campus will instead be conducted virtually. Mindful of the continuing public health crisis across the country, and especially here in California, we came to this decision after consultation with the Cabinet, faculty, staff, and students. We do believe that our foray into the virtual world, the combination of Zoom synchronous meetings and online course materials, since March has shown that Sofia faculty, staff, and students are adaptable, resilient, and know how to take a tough situation and turn it into a valuable learning experience.
We really appreciate everyone’s patience and can-do attitude during this tremendously challenging time.

Associate Vice President, Academic Affairs
Being a student-centered university means putting our students at the top of our priority list and making sure we’re doing everything possible to continue to provide the best educational experience during this pandemic.
We recently sent out a survey to make sure we’re doing just that, and the response has been positive! We invite you to hear what our students have to say about Sofia’s transition from face-to-face to virtual course instruction.
