July 14, 2020: Back-to-campus planning website

Dear Spartans,

We continue to plan and work diligently to be fully prepared for a safe and successful in-person fall semester.

As always, safety is our first priority as we consider our approach. We are carefully monitoring COVID-19 in Michigan and across the United States, as well as information from public health leaders. We’ll be ready to adapt our plans if and as necessary in the weeks ahead.

Right now, we’re focused on being prepared. Our COVID-19 Reopening Campus Task Force, subcommittee members and many dedicated staff and faculty are working overtime to get the details right. You can learn more on our Together We Will website, recently redeveloped to make it easier for you to find the information and updates you need.

The site features a video providing a brief overview of our planning in multiple areas, from health and safety to housing and dining to learning and research.

I invite you to view the video and updated website, and I thank you for doing your part as we move forward.


Samuel L. Stanley Jr., M.D.
