The book of Joshua tells the story of the people of Israel finally entering the Promised Land. But even after the people came out of the wilderness and saw Canaan, there were still battles to be fought. Who could forget the image of the walls of Jericho tumbling down?

A theme woven through the entire book of Joshua is, “Be strong and courageous.” As we face an uncertain future, this command from Joshua 1:9 will be our focus for the 2020-21 academic year.

The MC family is coming out of our own time in the wilderness, a period of separation from our campus home in Clinton due to the COVID-19 shutdown. While we’ll be back on campus in just a few short weeks, we will still have battles to fight.

This website provides the information you’ll need to navigate the procedures we’ve put into place to protect our community, keep our campus open, and win the battle against COVID-19.

As we start the new academic year together, be strong and courageous. The same God who led the Israelites to the Promised Land and collapsed the walls of Jericho is with us now, wherever we go.


The University's plan is subject to change based on our evolving understanding of COVID-19 and its impact. Check this website often for the latest information.
