"Back to school" unlike any year before

(Message sent to CLA alumni, August 12, 2020.)

Many in our alumni community have reached out with questions about what campus will look like this fall, what safety measures will be in place, what students can expect, and more. While we don’t have all the answers amid what is an inherently dynamic situation, below is an idea of what we anticipate. 

First, the University is asking all students, faculty, and staff to do their part by following the protocols of the "Stop the Spread of COVID-19” campaign. This includes social distancing, hand washing, taking temperatures, and more. All University of Minnesota students, faculty, staff, and visitors will also be required to use a face covering when in any enclosed or indoor space on University campuses and properties with face shields available for instructors.

And all academic spaces—University and departmentally administered—that are scheduled for in-person classes this fall will be stocked with sanitizing wipes for instructor and student use, as well as disposable masks for students who forget their face covering.
