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 biweekly 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.
Yesterday, President Schlissel announced that the university will open Michigan Stadium to graduates during our May 1 virtual commencement ceremony. This opportunity follows two important changes: The state of Michigan has increased the allowed capacity of outdoor stadiums, and we are seeing far fewer COVID-19 cases among students. Numerous safety protocols will be in place for graduates who choose to view commencement in the stadium.
Earlier today, your student received this emailed update announcement, which includes a link to the COVID-19 Briefing and stadium announcement.
