Falcon Forward!

UM Task Force

Task Force Activities

Given the volatile nature of the COVID-19 situation, modifications of this plan or the implementation of additional policies and procedures may be necessary to adhere to our campus culture of safety. Therefore, the Roadmap to Fall Opening Task Force will remain intact and will continue to monitor all areas set forth within this plan, and to analyze and adapt the plan as necessary.

All members of the University community are asked to regularly monitor their UM email, the UM website, and UM social media outlets for updates as this plan is subject to modification.
