EMU Planning To Have Students Back On Campus For Fall

May 8, 2020

Eastern Michigan University released information regarding its planning process for the Fall 2020 semester.  


The university’s goal is to have in-person, on-campus operations wherever possible.  That includes classroom instruction, housing, and dining.  Geoff Larcom is a spokesperson for the university and says they want to offer the best possible educational experience for students.

"On-campus is a component of that.  Obviously, the university is a vital place, an interactive place, a place of great growth and social development."

A Public Health Work Group will help the university identify health standards to resume on-campus operations.  Meanwhile, a steering committee that includes EMU President James Smith is leading the planning.
