Important Updates related to COVID-19

Dear U-M student family member,
We want to provide important updates that have been shared directly with your student
related to COVID-19. We also want to assure you U-M health professionals are actively
monitoring the rapidly changing developments, and making appropriate recommendations
to promote a safe and healthy environment for your student.

A COVID Update

Dear Parents and Families,

Today University of Michigan President Mark S. Schlissel, Provost Susan M. Collins and Vice President for Student Life Martino Harmon provided the bi-weekly Campus COVID-19 Briefing, where they were joined by campus leaders to provide updates and information about campus conditions and responses to the U-M community. 

This week's briefing included a discussion of U-M’s research success, a budget update, and answers to other related questions from the community.

Earlier today, your student received this emailed update announcement, which includes a link to the COVID-19 Briefing. 

To stay up-to-date throughout the week, you may also view the Campus Maize and Blueprint site.

Finding Community, Things to Do...

How does your student get involved in a true college experience, and yet stay within safety and social distancing guidelines? Meeting people, participating in Student Orgs, volunteering, and just getting involved is so essential to the campus equation. Yet, the COVID-19 pandemic, and its social distancing guidelines, has made making those connections a challenge for students. Student Life's Finding Community website and Things to Do emails can help.


FYE Meet Ups 

Let your student know that First Year Experience (FYE)'s Community Meet Ups have begun! Community Meet Ups are a space for students of all years to gather around shared interests. From gatherings for knitters to horror movie lovers, there is a Community Meet Up for everyone.

Students make their sustainability mark

Rooting for Change

Do you know about Adaptive Sports and Fitness?

‘Get out and get moving’ is not always as simple as it sounds. Physical fitness -- vital for your student’s health and wellness -- can be a challenge for individuals with mobility impairments. The Adaptive Sports and Fitness program at the University of Michigan is working to make sure all students have opportunities for participation -- whether the student is an advanced athlete or just wants to have fun.
