Latest Updates (May 22, 2020)

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

I hope this finds you well and looking forward to returning to the MC campus soon.

Next week, MC will welcome a small number of students and faculty back to campus for summer courses and labs that cannot be taught online. The MC Medical Crisis Response Task Force has developed guidelines to ensure that these members of the MC family remain healthy and that our campus reopens in August as planned.

It’s likely that these guidelines will still be in place during the fall semester. It may be helpful for you to look over these guidelines now so you’ll be prepared when you arrive on campus. You’ll find the guidelines here: mc.edu/summer2020.

Of course, if the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that we must be flexible and adapt quickly. Prior to the campus reopening in the fall, MC will provide the latest guidelines and instructions to help ensure your return to campus is not only safe, but is also as smooth and stress-free as possible.

We can’t wait to welcome you back to our beautiful campus. While social distancing may prevent warm hugs and face masks may hide our smiles, COVID-19 can’t take away our joy at having the MC family back home again.

Interim Provost and Graduate Dean
