Dear Kinesiology students and parents,
Yesterday, President Schlissel announced plans for the University of Michigan’s 2020-21 academic year. Here are the most important things you should know.
Please visit campusblueprint.umich.edu for the most up-to-date information as we get closer to fall.
The university has made adjustments to reduce back-and-forth travel and allow sufficient time between semesters for implementing any needed public health protocols.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected us all in a variety of ways. Some of us have lost loved ones; faced employment, housing, or food insecurity; experienced health issues; or have been separated from friends and family. Understandably, you might be feeling anxious about returning to campus. Please know that we are here to support you, both now and during the new academic year. If you need support, I encourage you to reach out to:
I know that this academic year will look and feel different. Despite our careful planning, we’ll need to remain agile and ready to adapt if circumstances change. And we all must commit to protecting our community by following the university’s guidelines.
I know you can and you will, because you’re the Leaders and Best. We’re looking forward to seeing you this fall.
Stay safe and healthy, and GO BLUE.
