Face-covering, quarantine policies updated

Based on new state guidance, the U-M face covering policy has been updated to allow your student and other individuals to go mask-free while outdoors on all U-M campuses.

The change updates the previous requirement — issued in July 2020 — that all students, staff, faculty and visitors wear a face covering anywhere on U-M property, including indoors, outdoors and while on U-M transportation on the Ann Arbor, Dearborn and Flint campuses.

Our Time With Your Student

Dear Wolverine Families,

Recently, I had the exciting opportunity to meet with U-M students for a virtual Leadership Connection event. In past years, our Center for Campus Involvement has held this leadership retreat for student organizations at Camp Michigania. This time around, we had a great time chatting on Zoom, and going virtual enabled students to join us from all across the globe. I was honored to share some of my personal “golden nuggets” of wisdom with these rising leaders, but I had just as much to learn from them as they had to learn from me. The core theme that arose from our chat? Community.

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 Campus COVID-19 Briefing, where they were joined by campus leaders to provide updates and information about campus conditions and resources. 

The leaders shared additional details about U-M’s Return to Campus work approach for those staff and faculty members who are currently working remotely or in hybrid ways due to the pandemic, noting that decisions about specific plans will be determined at the school, college, and unit level. President Schlissel said the priority is to ensure the mission of the University of Michigan is achieved at the highest level, and that at our core, U-M is an in-person residential living and learning community and our goal for the fall  is to stretch toward that as much as conditions will allow.

The leaders also discussed well-being resources for students, faculty, and staff during Mental Health Month. This week’s Briefing also included a short video produced by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. The video is part of the state’s effort to get everyone vaccinated, and it was shot outside the vaccine clinic at Ford Field in Detroit.
