UM Adopts State Community Engagement Guidelines
In a further effort to mitigate the risks of the COVID-19 pandemic, Faculty Senate and the University’s Executive Cabinet have adopted statewide recommendations for community engagement. These recommendations pertain to engagement activities that are not otherwise covered by internship or accreditation requirements.
In general, faculty and staff are to restrict engagement activities for students to low contact or no contact service, specifically avoiding contact with vulnerable populations as defined in this document. For questions, please refer to your division dean or the University Outreach Interim Director, Dr. Hollie Cost.

Since College Night dates have been rescheduled from Feb. 10-13 to March 10-13, the Feb. 12 “no class” day has been changed to March 12. Friday classes will meet as scheduled on Feb. 12.
