EMU Will Begin In-Person Instruction Today

Sep 21, 2020

Eastern Michigan University will begin in-person instruction Monday for the fall semester. 

Twenty percent of the courses offered this fall will consist of face-to-face instruction on campus.  EMU Spokesperson Geoff Larcom says department heads in each area of study decided how their students will learn this fall.  He explains the types of courses that are offering in-person instruction.

Geoff Larcom: The ones that rely on in-person interactions.  Such as certain labs, sciences and performing arts.

Social distancing signage has also been posted in classrooms, hallways, and around campus to remind students, faculty and staff to follow COVID-19 safety guidelines.  Students and staff must use an online screening program to be cleared for campus access each day and enter buildings at designated checkpoints.
