A Message from the Provost

Dear UIW Community,

Barbara Aranda-Naranjo, PhDThroughout the pandemic, we have overcome many challenges together to stay connected and keep our students on their journeys toward graduation. Thanks to our exceptional medical team, we have also been able to mitigate the spread of illness in our community, earning praise from city representatives for UIW planning and accomplishments. Our commitment to safety and success of the campus community during this last year, has set the foundation for even greater things to come in the coming 2021-2022 academic year.

Now we are excited to share our plans as we look forward to our Fall terms.

Academic Instruction

This fall, we will be back to deliver in-person instruction safely with rooms at their normal, full capacity. Therefore, we have scheduled fall classes with mostly in-person instruction at all UIW locations. At the same time, we do not think of Fall 2021 as a “return” to pre-pandemic. Instead, faculty are taking advantage of our improved capacity to provide new remote learning options – including online sections for most core courses – so students can build schedules that meet their needs.

The School of Professional Studies will again have in-person options for their courses, in addition to the array of online courses and degree programs that are a hallmark of the School of Professional Studies.

Our Health Professions programs will return to maximum in-person instruction to the extent possible, using online modalities as appropriate.

Campus Life and Student Success

UIW Housing and Residence Life will resume full occupancy including our newest apartment community, the Township! Also, our Residence Life staff is planning amazing and fun programs to create a dynamic live-in experience in the residence halls. Residence living is available whether student classes are in person or online.

Full dining options will be available, including Hortencia’s, Lucianos, Finnegan’s and the SEC Student Café.

Campus Engagement programs will offer a full spectrum of activities, both in-person and remote. This will include a robust Welcome Week schedule to assist students in becoming acclimated and engaged in the UIW campus community. 

Career Services will provide their usual range of services, with in-person and remote opportunities for professional development and connections with employers.

Student organizations will be encouraged to resume safe meetings and activities.

Overall, we will offer rich opportunities for students to safely connect with their Cardinal community whether it be in person, online, or blended! 


UIW men’s and women’s sports will resume their regular competition schedules and activities.

Study Abroad

We plan to resume Study Abroad programs in the 2021-2022 academic year, in careful compliance with public health guidelines, international travel safety and permissions, and University health and safety protocols. While we are optimistic that conditions will continue to improve, we will closely monitor the safety at each UIW sister school and provide updated information to participating students as it becomes available.

Continued Planning

While pandemic conditions around the world evolve, our medical team will continue to stay abreast of changes and keep us informed. In addition, the Provost’s team will explore flexible contingency options as needed. A final decision will be made by June 30, 2021, regarding whether pandemic conditions would require any adjustments for Fall terms. 

In the coming weeks, we will provide additional details related to orientation activities, new program opportunities, and activities provided through our Campus Life office. Updates and information related to Fall planning will be posted in the Cardinal Flight Plan.

As a faith community, we know we live and learn best in our relationships with each other and the personal exchanges that take place, whether in-person or remotely, every day. I am hopeful that we will soon return to safe environments where opportunities for more experiences in person abound.

UIW Cardinal Flight Plan to Fall 2021

Welcome, Cardinals! It's time to return to the Nest! As we navigate a new semester, this page will serve as your go-to resource for the most up-to-date information regarding Fall 2021 at UIW. While the COVID-19 pandemic presents an ever-changing landscape to which educational institutions must continue to adapt in order to best serve students, we are excited to have welcomed so many Cardinals back home this fall. As the situation continues to evolve, this page will be updated to reflect any changes to our Cardinal Flight Plan. Here is what you can expect at the Nest this semester.

COVID-19 Guidance as of August 1, 2021

Click the links below for UIW COVID-19 guidelines and procedures.

Procedures and General Guidelines

Fall 2021 Safety Update

Though the situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic has improved as members of our community have been vaccinated and continue to do their part to mitigage the spread of the virus, we know that we are still living in unique and uncertain times. None of us can know what the future holds for sure, but at the University of the Incarnate Word, we know this—we are dedicated to providing our students with a full University experience in Fall 2021. We are confident that the academic and non-academic support services and curriculum will be the excellent academic, collegial and productive experience that drew you to UIW, whether you choose to receive these services live or remotely. Safety plans for the fall semester are constantly being reviewed and are subject to change to reflect changes in current COVID-19 case numbers.

COVID-19 Map Updates

View the interactive UIW COVID-19 campus map with updated information regarding building notices and mask distribution locations for students.

Masks (Section Updated as of August 5, 2021)

Effective Thursday, August 5, masks and face coverings are now required indoors by those who are vaccinated as well as persons not vaccinated. Masks will also be required outdoors in group settings and when social distancing cannot be maintained.

Why this change?

We continue to monitor the COVID-19 landscape daily. We are implementing this change due to rapidly changing conditions caused by the COVID-19 Delta variant, in consultation with medical professionals, and with guidance from the CDC and the San Antonio Metropolitan Health District. This variant presents a much higher and faster rate of infection than we have seen in COVID-19 thus far. San Antonio recently reported a positivity rate of nearly 20%. 

Please contact Dr. Nathan Johnson, Associate Vice President for Public Safety, at   najohns2@uiwtx.edu, if you have any questions or concerns about this policy. The COVID-19 situation remains fluid, and this policy may be updated as changing conditions deem it appropriate. Thank you for your continued commitment to the safety of the University of the Incarnate Word community and for doing your part to maintain our philosophy of shared responsibility together as One Word.

Testing Requirements

When returning from holidays or break periods, or during times of increased local spread of COVID-19, UIW is following a comprehensive testing strategy. Employees and students should refer to the COVID-19 testing site for the most current testing guidance. This page will be updated, as needed, to provide the most current information.

UIW has two locations available for free COVID-19 testing. Employees and students can register for testing through the UIW Curative kiosk located in the Riverside parking lot on the Broadway campus or on the School of Osteopathic Medicine (SOM) campus by clicking on the links below. You must use your UIW email when registering for testing.

The kiosks are located in the Riverside Parking Lot, located directly across from Health Services and the Agnese/Sosa parking garage on the Broadway Campus and Lot 2B, behind Building 2 at the UIW School of Osteopathic Medicine. The Broadway Campus testing is available for employees and students only. The location at the SOM is open to the University community and is also open to the public. The test is a self-performed shallow nasal swab, authorized by the FDA for emergency use, to provide surveillance testing for general asymptomatic populations, including college-aged students. Results from these COVID-19 tests are estimated to be available within 24 to 72 hours.

Initial testing by August 14, 2021 will be required of all employees, students and regular vendors, regardless of your vaccination status. Vaccinated persons need to only test once during this initial period; afterwards weekly testing will be required for unvaccinated persons as recommended by CDC guidelines. If you tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 90 days, you will be exempt from testing until the 90 days have passed. 

Safety Signage

Safety markers remain located throughout campus in areas where lines typically form such as in dining facilities and student support offices. Additionally, signage remains placed in areas where it is difficult to maintain social distance to remind us to do our part in attempting to stay 3 feet or greater away from others.

Safety Shields

Plexiglass safety shields remain installed in many locations where individuals come face-to-face. These locations include dining facilities, student services offices, the Help Desk, the Cardinal Shoppe and more.


Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, UIW has developed detailed sanitization plans for all areas of the institution. In addition to extensive training on hygiene standards and protocol, UIW has done audits of all of our hygiene standards and their application. Recognizing the need for additional cleaning activities, the Office of Facilities Management and Services has worked with our contracted housekeeping services to ensure there is an increased frequency of cleaning Health Services, exam rooms, restrooms, locker rooms, shower rooms, athletic areas, classrooms, lecture halls, library, conference and meeting rooms. UIW has instructed use of EPA approved disinfectants and cleaners approved for COVID-19. UIW has also deployed sanitation stations in high traffic areas on campus to ensure that hand sanitation is a priority.


It is important for every member of the UIW community to self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms. Take note of any flu-like symptoms and if you feel sick, do not come to campus. COVID-19 symptoms include, but are not limited to:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough and/or sore throat
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea
  • Mental confusion
  • Loss of appetite

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, think you may have COVID-19 and/or have been in contact with someone who is diagnosed with COVID-19, you are required to contact UIW Health Services at (210) 829-6017 during regular hours (Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.) and/or fill out the UIW COVID-19 Illness Reporting Form.

COVID-19 UIW Community Illness Reporting Flow Chart


Minimize travel wherever possible. This includes in San Antonio and out of town. If planning to travel, we encourage our community members to practice preventative measures such as mask wearing and social distancing, and be mindful of the prevalence of COVID-19 in the area of travel. We can all do our part to minimize our exposure risk.

Campus Buildings and Common Areas

Common campus areas such as the Mabee Library, Student Engagement Center, dining areas, and the Cardinal Shoppe (bookstore) are open this semester. Academic spaces that host in-person classes are also open. Some spaces that don't have any planned or expected activity will be closed.

Mabee Library

The Mabee Library will be open for in-person services. UIW library resources will also be available to all students online 24/7. As the COVID-19 virus improves in the San Antonio area, more in-person services and resources will be available. Continue to come back to the Cardinal Flight Plan for more information.

Health Profession Schools

View Fall 2021 operating hours for each of the health profession schools: 

It is the University's intention to have our campus spaces open and available for student access and use. Specific decisions will be driven by local, regional and state-wide health requirements and guidance as well as the progression of COVID-19 in the San Antonio area.

Student Support Services

We take great pride in our faculty and staff’s commitment to the Mission which is reflected in the ongoing intense added preparations and innovations. While we have expanded our in-person classes for Fall, we will continue to also offer online options for many of our core classes. UIW remains committed to bringing valuable support to our students whether we teach classes in-person or remotely. 

  • All sections will keep their section sizes. Faculty will continue to offer office hours, both remotely and in person, to ensure that students can connect with faculty to discuss assignments, clarify questions, and understand their academic progress.    
    UIW faculty are engaged in high-quality instruction, both for in-person and remote learning and teaching. 
  • UIW offers robust student support services to support the students’ academic success.  Please visit your individual schools’ website for details on support for your program.   

For Broadway campus Undergraduate students: 

  • This fall, all student support offices will be open for walk-ins, but appointments are strongly encouraged. We also continue to support remote access to all support offices.  
    • The University Advising Center is the central hub for advising new and returning Broadway campus undergraduate students. 
    • The First Year Engagement Office (FYE) is dedicated to promoting the success of first-year students by enhancing student engagement on campus. They are available to assist students in locating UIW resources which will lead to academic success.
    • Learning Support Services, which includes the Writing and Learning Center and Tutoring Services, offers online and in-person peer tutoring options. Students can find assistance with writing, study skills, time management, and content across a range of courses that many find challenging. 
    • Career Services will offer all career events both in-person and remotely, including job fairs, professional development workshops and employer networking opportunities.  Appointments (in-person & remotely) can be scheduled via Handshake
    • Student Disabilities Services (SDS) will be available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Students may schedule face-to-face or Zoom appointments with the SDS team. 
    • Campus Engagement has designed many activities for the summer and the incoming year. While most activities will be on campus, we will continue to offer remote options to also engage those who are not able to come to campus. 
    • Housing and Residence Life is offering a variety of housing options in on-campus residence halls for Fall.  Please visit the Housing and Residence Life page for information on the application process and hall options.  

Reservations for Study Rooms, Meetings and Event Spaces

Availability of all campus rooms and event spaces are subject to change depending on current COVID-19 guidance. UIW procedures and policies will be adapted throughout the semester to align with safety guidelines that are in place for each phase of our COVID-19 response. Campus space requests may be submitted through the UIW scheduling platform, 25Live.

Health Profession students should address their reservation inquiries to their respective school contact.

Campus Dining

UIW and Sodexo, our national dining partner, are working together to make sure that the dining experience is both delicious and safe as we adhere to all CDC recommendations and guidelines.Your shared responsibility will be to follow all rules, observe social distancing and wear a mask when not eating. You can trust that we are taking mitigation efforts for the transmission of COVID-19 in each of our dining venues. All Sodexo employees will continue daily health screenings to include a detailed questionnaire and a temperature check before entering campus each day. Dining options available to students will be:

  • Resident Dining
  • Finnegan's
  • Luciano's Pizzeria
  • Hortencia's
  • The Bite App
  • The Dining Plan

Liturgy and Worship

Many liturgies at the University of the Incarnate Word serve not only the University community, but also the local community. We are a diverse population made up of students, faculty, staff and Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, and are uniquely situated next door to the Village at Incarnate Word – a retirement center and home to some of our Incarnate Word family. Decisions regarding university operations, including our campus worship, are guided by local, regional and state-wide progression of COVID-19 and, in particular, the dignity, health, and well-being of our generationally diverse community.

When UIW moved into the "Minimal to Moderate" or "yellow" warning indicator, Monday through Thursday Mass at noon resumed. Virtual prayer services remain an option for those who wish to continue worship and prayer from home. Public worship and protocols for the Chapel of the Incarnate Word will be determined by the congregational leadership of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word.

Stay up to date on worship opportunities by following UIW Mission & Ministry on social media.

In-Person and Remote Classes

While we strongly value the efficacy of face-to-face learning, we know that some of our students have benefited from remote-learning options. 

Lecture courses will be held in person for the Fall 2021 term and classrooms will resume normal, full capacity. We will continue to monitor regional health conditions and make necessary adjustments as needed.

Courses that require hands-on learning will also be held in person with adherence to all CDC suggestions for safety precautions. Specific questions about in-person coursework may be directed to your dean or department chair.

Remote-learning options will be available for most core classes so that students can build schedules that meet their unique needs.

Courses and Class Schedule

The published class schedule indicates in-person and remote-learning sections, noting whether the online sections will be synchronous or asynchronous.

When browsing the class schedule, click on the class link. Each course's "Class Details" tab will include a field for "Instructional Method." Designated instructional methods are defined as follows:

  • “Face-to-Face Same Location” – In-person course delivery; Designated class meeting time [See schedule for meeting day(s)/time(s)]
  • “Fully Dist. Ed. Crse., Async” – All online course delivery; No designated class meeting time [No meeting day(s)/time(s) on schedule]

Keeping Your Area Safe

As members of the UIW community, we have a shared responsibility to ensure the safety of our coworkers and students. One way we protect one another is by following the safety precautions outlined in the COVID-19 Return to Campus Requirements and Expectations Policy. The policy requires face masks to be worn in common areas, instructional spaces, classrooms and labs. Disposable face masks can be requested through Purchasing.

Return to Full-Time Campus Work 

Beginning June 1, 2021, staff and administrators returned to the workplace full time through a phased-in approach. Faculty will continue to provide academic instruction in their various modalities, including online, hybrid and in-person classes. 

We all share in the responsibility to do our individual part to ensure the health and wellbeing of our community. Please review the Statement of Shared Responsibility. Managers and employees should follow the UIW Return to Work Guidelines.

UIW will continue to monitor the positivity rate of our community as on-site operations resume to 100% and make adjustments as needed.
