Spring 2021

Per state and county orders, Sacramento MBA UCDHS campus is operating under

Red Status: Suspended Operations

last updated 04/09/2021

Keeping our community safe and healthy will require patience, consideration and empathy. We know Graduate School of Management community members are up for the challenge. 

Spring 2021 Instruction

Spring instruction is scheduled to be remote. If allowed by campus, county and state guidelines, we will have in-person classes at a later time. Currently, guidelines limit in-person instruction due to the county being in a Substantial tier according to the state restrictions on reopening non-essential indoor business operations. The GSM is operating at a Red Status: Suspended Operations due to these restrictions. We will provide updates weekly.

Sacramento Campus COVID-19 Safety Guidelines

Welcome to UC Davis Graduate School of Management. In collaboration with central campus and adhering to Sacramento County and state guidelines, we have established the following protocol for your safety and safety of the community. 

Entering the Building

Before you arrive at the Sacramento campus, please candidly assess how you are feeling. DO NOT COME TO CAMPUS IF YOU ARE NOT FEELING WELL. Err on the side of caution. Your instructors and GSM leaders will not penalize you for staying home.

While on campus, we expect you to follow these guidelines:

  • Wear a face covering at all times.
  • Maintain social distancing of six feet from other individuals.
  • A Daily Symptom survey, which you will complete via a smartphone app.
  • Wash your hands frequently or use hand sanitizer. The GSM is providing the use of hand sanitizer upon entry to the building as well as providing hand sanitizing stations throughout the building for your convenience.
  • Stay home if you are sick.

Building Hours for Faculty, Staff and Students

Faculty, staff and students have access to the Education Building via your access badge. Entrance will only be allowed at the Rotunda entrance doors across from the library, all other doors will be locked. The building will be closed to the public. If you are not following the posted guidelines while in the building, you may be asked to leave.


As of September 1, 2020, Graduate School of Management classes are being delivered remotely until further notice. In order to prioritize student study spaces for our cleaning and disinfecting efforts, at this time, classrooms are closed and unavailable for use.


Please be considerate. Wash your hands thoroughly. Try to avoid using handles in the restroom spaces. The restrooms will be disinfected and cleaned frequently. Please maintain 6 ft. social distancing.

Shared Spaces

Please do not congregate in the interior corridors. You will see that casual seating throughout the building has been removed. All of these barriers are there to keep our community safe and healthy. Please do not ignore or tamper with them.

We encourage you to take conversations outside the building. Fresh air and additional space for social distancing create a safer environment for discussion.

Meeting Rooms

The student meeting rooms were designed to foster collegial congregation. We look forward to using this space in that capacity again. In the meantime, please observe all signs and barriers. Please remember to practice social distancing. When using meeting spaces, please disinfect areas before and after each use.

Sacramento MBA students can use the Education building for individual student study space. You must adhere to signage posted within the building and complete the Daily Symptom Survey before entering the building. Please email your approved results of the survey to Dedan Sims.

Elevators and Stairs

Please read the signs providing specific instructions for the elevators and stairs. Please maintain appropriate social distancing.
