We went to the source -- students -- to see what tips they would offer to fellow classmates on how to make the most of this online and modified academic experience.

Our Time With Your Student

Dear Wolverine Families, 

As you are likely already aware, thanks to routine university testing measures, the spread of the more contagious B.1.1.7 COVID-19 variant was identified within the campus community. The Washtenaw County Health Department, in collaboration with the university, released a Stay in Place Recommendation to mitigate further spread. You can read more about it here

Earlier today University of Michigan President Mark S. Schlissel and Provost Susan M. Collins hosted the biweekly Friday Campus COVID-19 Briefing, where they were joined by campus leaders and physicians to provide updates and information about campus conditions and responses to the U-M community. 
This week's briefing included discussions of the Washtenaw County stay-in-place recommendation, U-M’s ongoing testing and vaccination efforts, the B.1.1.7 variant and answers to questions from the community.

A COVID Update

Dear Parents and Families,

Earlier today, your student received this emailed update announcement from University of Michigan President Mark S. Schlissel, Provost Susan M. Collins and Vice President for Student Life Martino Harmon regarding the recent increase in COVID-19 cases, along with the discovery and mitigation efforts for the B.1.1.7 variant of COVID-19. The email includes a recommendation that all students living in Washtenaw County stay in place except for essential activities to help slow the spread of the virus. U-M and the county health department collaborated on this  proactive measure to protect our community. Many of the new cases associated with the campus are due to student social activities.

It is our goal to keep you updated with the most current information on protocols, procedures and opportunities to make it a safe, positive experience for your student.
