This week’s wrap-up message provides updates on our new coming to campus procedures and updates on moving towards normal operations on campus.  

Dear Colleagues,

As the situation with the coronavirus continues to evolve, we remain committed to sharing information and updates to help you stay healthy and safe while we work towards a continuity of student learning and university operations.

This week’s wrap-up message provides updates on our new coming to campus procedures and updates on moving towards normal operations on campus.  

New Procedures Before Coming to Campus: Emergency Management Director Laura Drabczyk shared with the campus community new procedures we all must follow if coming to campus, regardless of the reason or duration of our visit.  It is imperative that we all adhere to these new procedures, which include an online training exercise and health screening, to meet the latest state of Michigan requirements and to keep our campus safe and healthy. 

Research Lab Operations Going Well: The first phase of resuming laboratory research continues to go well.  Select labs in CECS and CASL reopened nearly two weeks ago and all procedures are working well and as planned.  The research planning team is currently evaluating all aspects of this first wave of openings and will share with faculty when additional labs may reopen at the appropriate time.  Research lab protocols and procedures can be reviewed here

Fall Teaching Plan: We remain on schedule to share our fall semester plans next week. This early notice will help our campus community best prepare for the fall semester. Please keep an eye out for email communications, Record and Reporter stories and an invitation to an upcoming virtual town hall. 

This will be the last weekly COVID-19 update. The provost and I will share information as needed as we continue our preparations for the fall semester. 

With all best wishes for your continued good health and a relaxing summer, 

Domenico Grasso
Chancellor
